Florida Gators Getting an Early Jump on 2014 Recruiting Class

Florida is wasting little time basking in their success of a top-three recruiting class this week and already have two top commitments for the class of 2014 with dual-threat quarterback Will Grier (Davidson, Nc. Davidson) and Ryeshene Bronson (Fort Myers, Fl. Dunbar).

Grier committed a week before Christmas this past year and will be an early-enrollee which will help him add weight to his 185-pound frame and process Brent Pease’s playbook. The 6-3 signal-caller will get to participate in spring practices and the spring game as he looks to secure the backup position to incumbent starter, Jeff Driskel during his senior season.

With Bronson joining him in Gainesville, the two have all the makings of forming a dynamite connection–provided neither of them decommit between now and when they can sign–but at 6-3, Bronson finally brings a tall receiver to Florida after seeing the likes of Percy Harvin, Jacquez Green, Reidel Anthony and Ike Hilliard have success for Florida, but neither measured up to even six feet.

Bronson has the size of an AJ Green and Julio Jones who starred in the SEC and represents the new breed of giant receivers who can impose their will over smaller defensive backs.

It’s shaping up to be another top-three class for Will Muschamp in 2014, and Grier and Bronson could be the faces of offense along with incoming 2013 recruit, Kelvin Taylor at running back and potentially the No. 1 player in the nation.
