For the second time this week, the Florida Gators have landed a verbal commitment to enhance their Class of 2016 with three-star running back Lamical Perine (Theodore, AL) pledging Friday to join the program.

Perine, who was offered by Florida running backs coach Tim Skipper on Thursday and committed to the Gators less than 24 hours later, was a former target of Skipper and head coach Jim McElwain while the two were at Colorado State.

McElwain, White, Foley make few waves as Florida Gators reps at 2015 SEC spring meetings

A tumultuous offseason for Florida Gators athletic director Jeremy Foley, one in which he had to hire new head coaches in his two top revenue-producing sports of football and basketball, did not carry over to the Southeastern Conference spring meetings this week where Foley and his new coaches were some of the least news-making people in attendance at the annual event.

Though the meetings will go on for two more days with new Florida president Kent Fuchs set to be in attendance, OnlyGators.com has decided to wrap up the first two days of the proceedings and provide a detailed look at five of the biggest topics actually discussed by the Gators’ representatives in Destin, Florida.

Florida adds JUCO OL Branton Autry for 2016

The Florida Gators on Wednesday added some much-needed experience at a shallow position when junior college offensive lineman Branton Autry committed to the team for the 2016 season.

Autry (6-foot-5, 320 pounds) plays offensive tackle for Coffeyville Community College and was named first-team all-conference last season. He chose Florida over offers from Arkansas, Arizona State, Baylor, Missouri, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Kansas State, Louisville and South Carolina, among others.

Florida 2015 signee G KeVaughn Allen sticks with commitment to Gators basketball

New Florida Gators head basketball coach Michael White has only been on the job a week but nevertheless managed his first signature win on Monday by ensuring 2015 four-star signee KeVaughn Allen (Little Rock, AR) will stick with his commitment and join the program ahead of next season.

Allen, a talented shooting guard rated as No. 60 in the 247Sports Composite and No. 51 overall on the ESPN 100, was Florida’s highest-ranked signee for next season but looked to be on the outs with the program after the departure of Billy Donovan.

Florida basketball signees Keith Stone, Kevarrius Hayes remain committed to Gators

Though the Florida Gators‘ 2015 signing class has been shaken by the departure of head coach Billy Donovan, it will only be split in half rather than completely lost.

Four-star forward signees Keith Stone (Deerfield Beach, FL) and Kevarrius Hayes (Live Oak, FL) on Wednesday reaffirmed their status as Gators signees as both players have decided not to ask for releases from their National Letters of Intent.

Florida adds JUCO RB Mark Thompson for 2016

The Florida Gators on Wednesday added an important commitment when junior college running back Mark Thompson (Wyncote, PA), a four-star prospect, agreed to join the program in 2016.

Thompson (6-foot-2, 230 pounds) was offered by the Gators in late April and chose Florida over Arizona State, Iowa and Louisville. He was previously being recruited by head coach Jim McElwain and running backs coach Tim Skipper when the duo was at Colorado State.

Florida signee Noah Dickerson requests release from National Letter of Intent

Rather than keep the Florida Gators’ 2015 signing class from falling apart, new head coach Michael White is now tasked with ensuring he does not lose it completely.

Late Tuesday night, four-star power forward signee Noah Dickerson (Montverde, FL) confirmed that he has officially asked to be released from his National Letter of Intent with Florida and will seek to begin his college basketball career elsewhere.

Mike White ‘not into begging’ but focused on retaining Florida Gators’ 2015 signees

Scouting, offensive installations, game planning, substitutions and timeouts … those will all come in due time for new Florida Gators head basketball coach Michael White, who during his official introduction on Monday had one more immediate and important task on his mind – retaining the strong four-member 2015 signing class recruited by his predecessor, Billy Donovan.

Guard KeVaughn Allen (North Little Rock, AR), small forward Keith Stone (Deerfield Beach, FL), power forward Noah Dickerson (Montverde, FL) and center Kevarrius Hayes (Live Oak, FL) – all four-star prospects – suddenly need to be re-recruited by White, who desperately needs to secure a re-commitment from each considering the state of the Gators’ roster.

Florida, which once needed to find two scholarships just to sign its 2015 class, wound up one below the NCAA maximum of 13 after three players with eligibility remaining departed in the offseason (to go along with one midseason transfer and one graduate). The Gators are now in danger of being seriously short on scholarship players in White’s first season … if he’s not able to retain the program’s signees.
