Might the Florida Gators be in for a rude recruiting awakening on 2016 National Signing Day?

The Florida Gators are dragging into 2016 National Signing Day, especially compared to one year ago at this time. That’s what happens when a program looking to hold strong at the crest of a tidal wave of momentum instead crashes down with it, losing their last three games in embarrassing fashion.

That’s why one year after head coach Jim McElwain looked to be a miracle worker as the Gators hauled in an impressive crop of players on signing day – including two of their top three remaining prospects in five-stars defensive end CeCe Jefferson and offensive tackle Martez Ivey – Florida may get shut out on the day … and could even lose one or more of its committed players.

Indeed, with signing day less than 24 hours away, there appear to only be three players legitimately considering the Gators and none of them seem to have Florida as a true leader entering Wednesday.

Florida Gators recruiting: Targets to watch through 2016 National Signing Day

Currently *26 members strong with 10 more commitments entering 2016 National Signing Day compared to this time last year, the Florida Gators’ recruiting class has only a few spots left and not many candidates to fill those potential scholarships.

Head coach Jim McElwain has done a good job filling some of his team’s needs, but the Gators also appear to be limping towards the finish, either being eliminated or not seriously in contention for some of the top remaining uncommitted players.

With National Signing Day set for Wednesday, Feb. 3, Florida does still remain a contender for some of the best players in the country. Whether the Gators will be able to lock up any of these prospects remains to be seen, but UF is absolutely in the hunt for at least a couple of these players, who will be making their decisions this week.

Be sure to visit OnlyGators.com’s live coverage of National Signing Day, which will kick off Wednesday morning at 8 a.m. It will feature a live blog that will be constantly updated throughout the day and a checklist to keep track of every signed National Letter of Intent (NLI) and new commitment.

For now, OnlyGators.com breaks down which players the Gators are still waiting to hear from and when they may learn of their respective decisions. This is everything you need to know ahead of the biggest day of the offseason for Florida.

Fastbreak: Gators earn needed signature win as Florida obliterates No. 9 West Virginia 88-71

In desperate need of a signature win, Florida Gators basketball got just that on Saturday, defeating a top-10 opponent for the first time in 13 tries with a dominant 88-71 victory over the No. 9 West Virginia Mountaineers at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center in Gainesville, Florida.

Florida (14-7) put together a dominant offensive performance for the second time in three games as it rained threes and was extremely efficient from the charity stripe. West Virginia (17-4) simply could not get back into the game after a hot start for the Gators.

OnlyGators.com breaks down Saturday’s important win with nine quick-hitters:

It was over when: Though Florida held the lead for 39:49 of the 40-minute contest and was up by nearly 20 late in the game, West Virginia had its opportunities to come back. It was not until a dagger three-pointer by sophomore guard Chris Chiozza with 2:35 to play that all hope was lost for the visitors. The Gators jumped ahead 84-67 and scored eight-straight points to earn a game-high 21-point advantage with 1:03 to play. Chiozza finished 4-of-8 from the field and 2-for-3 from downtown with 10 points, six assists and two steals, though he did cough up the ball a team-high six times.

A trio of internal staff members hired by Florida Gators head coach Jim McElwain prior to his first season with the football team will not return to the program in 2016 after getting assistant coaching jobs at different stops across the country.
