FIVE SEC RECRUITERS OFF TO HOT STARTS

Florida running backs coach JaJuan Seider is recognized as one of the five SEC assistant coaches off to a hot start in 2018 recruiting.

Biggest get: Iverson Clement

Florida’s class is small, sure, but the work Seider has done can’t be overlooked. He played a huge part in landing both four-stars C.J. Smith (DB) and Clement (RB) along with high three-star wider receiver Corey Gammage. More important than the players he’s landed in 2018, however, is the reputation Seider is building as an ace recruiter in the Southeast and beyond. Prospects find Seider relatable and routinely mention his name following visits. He’s long been known as a top recruiter but seems to be taking the next step now that’s he’s landed at UF.
