Florida football has made some late moves recently in the class of 2024, but are also making some noise recruiting the 2025 class.

With all of the focus in the recruiting world now shifting to the '25 players, Billy Napier and the Gators are already trending for some of the better in-state players that they are going after.

One of those guys is Myron Charles, a 4-star DL out of Port Charlotte, Florida. Charles has already taken four trips to The Swamp, including a trip this past weekend where the Gators seem to have made a big move on him.

If new Gators' DL coach Gerald Chatman can make quick work of Myron's recruitment, it will set Florida up for success down the road in the 2025 cycle.

Florida football: How good is he?

Myron has quite the rating disparity across different services. With On3, Charles is rated as the 67th-best player in the country and the 8th-best defensive lineman. But if you click over to 247 Sports, Myron is down at 233rd in the country and the 24th-best DL.

When Myron's senior year rolls around, we'll get a better consensus on exactly where he stands in the 2025 class.

Standing at 6'5''-260, Charles is already a massive presence on the interior of the defensive line. In his junior season, he totaled 29 tackles, 9.5 TFLs, 1.5 sacks, and two pass deflections over 11 games.

Other schools in contention for Myron per On3 are Miami and Louisville, but the Gators have a large lead over both of them. As time goes on, we can expect more schools to get involved here as well.

Charles' recruitment is an early chance for Coach Chatman to show what he can do on the recruiting trail and establish himself as a threat.
