After getting some momentum in their favor, Napier and his staff will look for a much bigger haul on National Signing Day on Feb. 2. This class only has nine signees currently, and there’s certainly room to add a lot more. The staff will also be able to evaluate players more fully by then, as Napier even pointed out during his opening press conference that the team may not sign many players during the early period.
One committed player, three-star offensive lineman Jalen Farmer from Covington, Georgia, did not sign on Wednesday. He will wait until signing day in February instead, but Florida should still be in good position to land him if it wants to as he’s set to take an official visit in January, per the Gainesville Sun’s Zach Abolverdi.
One player to keep an eye on before National Signing Day is Jennings, Louisiana, running back Trevor Etienne. The younger brother of former Clemson star and Jacksonville Jaguars first-round pick Travis, the younger Etienne will announce his decision, which is likely to be between Florida, LSU and Clemson, on Jan. 8.
