Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl

A pair of four-star 2019 signees, linebacker Diwun Black and offensive lineman Deyavie Hammond  are in junior college after failing to qualify at Florida. Unfortunately, the number of non-qualifiers is now up to three as The Athletic is reporting Arjel Henderson will not enroll at UF and will be released from his National Letter of Intent.

Henderson was a four-star member of the Gators’ most recent recruiting class. The 6-1, 183-pound receiver was rated as the No. 22 player at any position in the state of Florida.

The attrition may not be over, either, as Wardrick Wilson is working his way through a visa issue that may or may not be resolved this year. The four-star offensive tackle is from the Bahamas.

On top of all of those issues, two other four-star 2019 signees, quarterback Jalon Jones and cornerback Chris Steele , have transferred from the program

Those six players represent the No. 1, No. 7, No. 8, No. 9, No. 13 and No. 16 signees out of 26 member 2019 signing class.
