Florida football: Gators recruiting class of 2020, part 1

Currently, Florida football as the No. 11-ranked recruiting class for 2020, according to Rivals. This week, we look at those who have verbally committed to the Gators.

It’s a mixture of 0 stars to four stars as Florida football has the 11th-highest-ranked recruiting class of 2020, according to Rivals.

This week, we want to look at that class, a little more in-depth.

We’ll look at the rankings, who offered and, if possible, even share some video on the recruit. We will spotlight a couple on a day and likely not revisit those we have already written about in the last few weeks.

Without further ado, here you go:

Marc Britt, WR Miami (Florida) Christian School

Britt committed to Florida football on Nov. 1, 2019, amid offers from Alabama, Auburn, Miami, Penn State and others.

Last Friday, Miami Christian defeated Neumann (Naples, Florida), 35-24 in the Class 2A state playoffs. Stats for the Victors (that’s actually the team mascot) are hard to come by, so we don’t have anything in-depth on Britt this season.

According to his Rivals.com profile, he was ranked as high as No. 6 in the state back in December, but that has dropped a bit (for some reason) to No. 46 overall in the state of Florida.

Britt is a big receiver (stands 6-foot-1) and has the ability to out-jump corners and safeties for the ball. His open-field speed is also pretty solid.

Antwaun Powell-Ryland, DE Indian River (Virginia) High School

Powell is listed as a 230-pound weakside defensive end. He committed to Florida football in June after his initial visit to Gainesville.

He was also offered by East Carolina, Georgia Tech, Miami and Michigan. He did make campus visits to Duke — twice — Michigan — twice — Maryland, North Carolina and Oklahoma.

Powell-Ryland’s stock has risen of late as he went from being not ranked as a sophomore to being No. 10 at his position in the state of Virginia.

In all, he possesses great speed off the ball and the ability to come off a tackle to make a play on the edge. It is for good reason Florida football defensive coordinator Todd Grantham recruited Powell-Ryland himself.

Lamar Goods, DT St. Thomas More (Connecticut) High School

Goods had previously committed to Kentucky in April but changed his mind when Florida football came calling.

He visited Gainesville on June 14 and ended his commitment to the Wildcats by verbally committing to Florida on June 19. It is a big get for Florida to land the 4-star defensive tackle out of Connecticut.

Nationally, Rivals.com ranks Goods as the No. 217 overall recruit in the class of 2020. He is No. 15 in his position and the No. 3 recruit overall in the state of Connecticut.

Goods is a big, disruptive tackle that has a penchant for making opposing offensive lines look really bad. For 6-4, 300 pounds, Goods is still remarkably quick off the ball and can power his way up the middle to flush the pocket or collapse a running play.

In addition to Kentucky and Florida, Goods received offers from Georgia, Syracuse and Rutgers among the seven schools offering.

Jeremy Crawshaw, P Sydney, Australia

Punters don’t get a lot of love on the field.

But, New South Wales kicker Jeremy Crawshaw has got serious power behind his leg.

And, Florida football is in the market for a replacement as current starting punter Tommy Townsend is a redshirt senior and will graduate this year.

Crawshaw was discovered as part of the Prokick Australia academy in Sydney.

For the record, Florida was the only school to offer Crawshaw a scholarship and he verbally committed to the Gators on Sept. 20.

Remember, No. 11 Florida football will kick-off in Columbia, Missouri against Mizzou at noon, Saturday.
