GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida coach Will Muschamp said all last season that for the Gators to challenge for the Southeastern Conference title they needed to upgrade both lines of scrimmage.
He moved closer to getting it done Wednesday.
Muschamp's second recruiting class included eight defensive linemen and the top-rated offensive tackle in the country. The Gators, however, finished with just eight offensive players. The 23-player class, ranked fourth by ESPNU, could improve if receiver Stefon Diggs ends up in Gainesville. The 6-foot-1 wideout from Olney., Md., will announce his decision Feb. 10.
Muschamp wanted to sign more, but he lost out on four players on national signing day. Receiver Nelson Agholor picked Florida State, cornerback Tracy Howard selected Miami, defensive end Leonard Williams chose Southern Cal and offensive lineman Avery Young preferred Auburn.
Below is the complete list of Florida signees Wednesday, including early enrollees.
