SHOCKER - FOUR-STAR COMMITS TO MICHIGAN

The one constant with recruiting is that anything can and will happen. That was proven today when four-star tight end Nick Eubanks committed to Michigan while on his official visit to Ann Arbor.

Eubanks was scheduled to visit Florida last weekend, but cancelled and then rescheduled that visit for this weekend.

Whether or not that trip to Gainesville takes place now is unknown.

ANTONNEOUS CLAYTON UPDATED

Though he is firmly committed to Florida, that isn't stopping Auburn from going all out attempting to flip five-star defensive end Antonneous Clayton.

The Tigers were scheduled to have head coach Gus Malzahn make an in-home visit with him today.

FIVE-STAR CANCELS FLORIDA VISIT

Even when five-star linebacker Lyndell Wilson was publicly calling Florida his outright leader, there were those who were skeptical as to whether the Gators would be able to pull him out of Alabama when it was all said and done.

On Thursday, those skeptics were proved to be correct.

THE BIG BOARD WITH ONE WEEK REMAINING

With just one week remaining in the 2016 recruiting cycle we run down the prospects remaining on the board for the Florida Gators.

There are nine uncommitted targets remaining out there - five or six for which Florida remains a real threat to nab.

On the flip side, there seven Florida commits who are still or have recently taken visits elsewhere - thus should be monitored.

UPDATES ON TWO COMMITTED DEFENSIVE ENDS

In recruiting, it's never over until it's over. That is certainly the case with two of Florida's defensive end commitments.

Auburn is attempting to visit with one - while another, who just recently visited another school, is taking another unexpected visit this weekend.
