Another National Signing Day has come and gone. And for some state teams, they had a great day, while others had some misfortunes.
The day started with a bang for the Gators, when they surprisingly, were able to flip Alabama verbal commit DE Khris Bogle of Ft. Lauderdale. Dan Mullen has continued his impressive first full year as the head man in Gainesville and was all smiles Wednesday morning:

They were also able to land a top defensive back DB Kaiir Elam of Palm Beach. The Gators are going to end up with the top class in the state and could finish in the top 10 overall.
The Seminoles may have had a solid class, but, as we wrote, still didn’t land a quarterback. They were let down by Lance LeGendre of New Orleans, as he committed to Maryland. This came a day after they failed to reel in John Rhys-Plumblee, who went to Ole Miss. The Noles are still waiting to hear from a top prospect in Nick Cross, and still hold a top 20 class overall, as they look to rebound from a bad 2018.
The Canes have had new life, ever since Manny Diaz has become the head coach. And, they made social media waves with the commitment of the tattooed Australian punter Louis Hedley:
Say hello to @CanesFootball's new Aussie punter 😳

The Canes biggest splash of the day though came with the commitment of DB Christian Williams from Daphne, AL. The Canes were able to get the commitment over the powerhouse Crimson Tide. Miami will end with only a top 30 class, but this doesn’t include the abundance of transfers they were able to bring in and it has to be a victory to salvage some recruits.
The UCF Knights were busy in Hawaii again. Lokahi Pauole, a massive offensive lineman from Kamehameha High, signed to play in Orlando. Overall the Knights will have the top class in the AAC and # 55 overall. They have also added former Notre Dame QB Brandon Wimbush on a transfer. UCF will look strong to win the conference for the third straight year.
Finally, the USF Bulls brought in three corners in this class, as well as an intriguing QB/athlete in Jahquez Evans from Atlanta. Charlie Strong is looking for a bounce-back season and wants to change the culture after dismissing several players and replacing a few coaches.
This includes, Kerwin Bell being brought in to run a new offensive system.
The Bulls have the 75th ranked class and the fifth in the AAC.
