Florida football recruiting got through Early Signing Day without losing their best commitments, but took a couple of big hits to the middle part of their class.

Billy Napier is looking to try and stop the bleeding and get the Gators some momentum back on the trail with Zavier Mincey, a four-star corner out of Mainland, Florida.

Mincey signed his Letter of Intent this week but is waiting to reveal his decision on January 6th at the Under Armour All-American Game.

Mincey has become a very important guy for the Gators to bring home, and would be a big win for new DB coach Will Harris.

The Gators have been the team to beat in Mincey's recruitment forever, and are still the favorites to land him per On3's RPM.

As of now, On3 gives the Gators a 51.5% chance to land Mincey, ahead of Miami at 27.8%, Alabama at 15.5%, and FSU at 2.2%.

Zay is rated as the 48th-best player in the country, the sixth-best corner, and the eighth-best player coming out of Florida per On3's Industry Ranking. Landing both him and LJ McCray out of Mainland would be quite the duo.

Florida has received the most visits of any school from Mincey with eight, which is three more than the next closest school. He took an offical visit to The Swamp over the summer.

Gator fans and coaches will be watching Mincey's decision closely, as it will have a huge impact on the perception of their 2024 class.

If Florida lands him, suddenly Napier has salvaged a decent amount of talent, and while Florida still lost too many players to other schools, he has a good class to work with.

But if Mincey goes elsewhere, the noise is just going to get louder and louder.
