Gators gain edge by offering early

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The Florida Gators could potentially sign fewer than 20 players in their 2014 class, yet the Florida coaching staff has offered scholarships to more than 100 prospects.

Big-time programs in Florida such as Florida, Florida State and Miami all try and get an early edge in the recruiting process. One way of doing that is to be one of the first schools to offer a scholarship.
