Florida’s Class of 2020 is absolutely on fire.
Last night, the Gators landed borderline four/five star receiver Leonard Manuel out of Ocala, FL/Vanguard. Thought by many to be a Georgia lean, Manuel announced otherwise on Twitter:
110%🧡💙🐊 IM A FLORIDA GATOR!!

Still a high school junior, Manuel has already racked up offers from Georgia, FSU, LSU, Auburn, Miami, Ohio State, Texas A&M and USC.
Among those that follow recruiting, this one was somewhat expected. Manuel visited Florida six times during the course of the 2018 season, and once back in June. He’s also built a fantastic relationship with future position coach Billy Gonzales.
Florida’s Class of 2020 is already up to eight commits, good enough to be ranked number three in the 247 composite rankings. And Mullen is hot in pursuit of several other top level 2020 prospects, so there could be another commitment or two on the horizon.
