With 65 days until National Signing Day, GatorBait.net recaps some of today's recruiting rumblings as it pertains to the Florida Gators.

Florida, as well as Miami and Florida State will see see him during the second week of the contact period as well. Details on the visits to see Collins can be found HERE.
***Immokalee (Fla.) cornerback Mackensie Alexander has been a tough prospect to glean much recruiting information from throughout the whole process.

Florida is one school that visited him last week with more coming this week. Details on upcoming his visitors and what sources say is the current school to beat can be found HERE.
***Avon (Ind.) defensive end Elijah Daniel has long been a prospect on Florida's radar, even during his commitment to Clemson. Now that he has backed off that pledge, Florida has some competition for the four-star prospect. Details on the schools that have come to see Daniel last week and who he expects to stop by this week can be found HERE.
***Briar Woods (Va.) linebacker and current South Carolina commit Matt Rolin made a surprise official visit to Florida this past weekend.
