Florida football will attempt to complete a likely top ten national 2024 recruiting class on National Signing Day on Wednesday.

The Florida Gators, who finished 5-7, need help in a variety of positions. UF didn’t hesitate to play youngsters in 2023, as 12 of its 20 true freshmen appeared in at least 10 games last season.
