After finishing last season 20-16, head coach Mike White went out and pulled in an outstanding recruiting class led by 5-star recruits Scottie Lewis, Tre Mann, and Virginia Tech grad transfer Kerry Blackshear. Add them to the return of sophomore trio of Andrew Nembhard, Noah Locke, and Keyontae Johnson, it is no surprise the Gators are ranked as high as 6th in the preseason poll.
