FLORIDA FOR SURE TO BE IN TOP FIVE

Florida just offered Marietta (Ga.) defensive end Azeez Ojulari in the last week, one of the reasons being he is a big fan of former Gators defensive end Dante Fowler.

After visiting South Carolina today for a Jr. Day he shares the latest.

THREE MORE TUESDAY NIGHT OFFERS

Instead of Oparah Winfrey standing infront of an audience pointing out audience members saying, 'You get a car, you get a car, everybody gets a car.' but instead replace Winfrey with Jim McElwain and instead of a studio audience he was talking to prospects.

That is a bit of what felt like on Tuesday as Florida extended offer after offer.

The three latest being:

* 2018 Louisanaa offensive lineman Cameron Wire

* 2019 Rivals100 defensive lineman Steven Faucheux

* 2018 Rivals250 wide out Jaylen Waddle

That is in addition to two known offers that went out earlier today (see below).
