Florida has struggled on the recruiting trail under Will Muschamp, but the Gators scored a big recruiting victory by landing Marcus Roberson
, who had been committed to Auburn.
This classifies as the first shock of National Signing Day 2011.
Roberson helps Florida in the CBS College Research Rankings, moving the Gators from No. 14 to No. 11.
With another big commitment (Curtis Grant
would qualify), Florida could find itself inside the Top 10, which would be an impressive feat for Muschamp in his first recruiting cycle with the Gators.
