Florida Gators officially add 20 players to roster

First year Florida Gators head coach Jim McElwain has high expectations for the first recruiting class he reeled in his stint in Gainesville.

On Monday, the Gators added 16 freshman and four transfers to their roster according to gatorzone.com.

One of their main prizes from the 2015 recruiting class,  offensive tackle Martez Ivey, was one of the notable ones who officially stepped on campus for the Summer B term.

Ivey was the No. 1 ranked offensive tackle in the country, according to Rivals.com.

Other prospects such as running backs Jordan Scarlett and Jordan Cronkrite, offensive tackles Nick Buchanon, Richerd Desir-Jones, Fred Johnson, and Brandon Sandifer also made their way to campus as well.

The Gators offensive line depth was scarce during spring so these prospects could not get on campus soon enough for McElwain and his coaching staff.

Scarlett is expected to contribute early and will help fellow running back Kelvin Taylor get some rest during a tough SEC schedule.

Florida let go of former head coach Will Muschamp after another disappointing season. The Gators finished the 2014 campaign with a 7-5 record.

McElwain helped rejuvenate Colorado State’s program and posted a 10-2 record in 2014.
