Florida is currently riding the rocky roller coaster of recruiting

The world of college football recruiting isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s also not a spectator’s sport — considering the fluidity and fickle nature surrounding the entity itself. 

Impressionable young men are being pursued by high-profile figures within the industry. As such, any major college program will experience both the highs and lows when its comes to receiving commitments — or potentially losing one. 

Florida felt this dichotomy over the past weekend, as it garnered the pledges of two players, and lost the services of another. 

After garnering the commitment of stud signal-caller Feleipe Franks, Florida followed that up with a pledge from massive offensive guard Jawaan Taylor. A 3-star Scout.com recruit, the 6’5", 343-pound lineman appears to be a monster in the run-game. He opted for the Gators over offers from Clemson, Ohio State, and Florida State (among others). 

Unfortunately for Jim McElwain and his staff, they also lost the non-binding commitment from cornerback Jayvaughn Myers. 

A Rivals.com 4-star athlete, the corner out of Dade City has offers from all over the country. Interestingly enough, his half-brother is also a fellow top-recruit, in receiver Nate Craig-Myers.
