On Monday, the Florida Gators continued what has become a furious start the to the 2013 recruiting class.

With his commitment, Florida’s class now stands at 15 strong and we haven’t even made it to the middle of April.

While Florida is builing some experience across the line, depth is always an important aspect to building the unit.
