GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The final signees from the Florida Gators’ 2024 recruiting class reported to campus this week for move-in day. The football team officially started summer workouts on Tuesday.

The players who have relocated to Gainesville are two top-100 recruits in linebacker Aaron Chiles and tight end Amir Jackson, four-star offensive lineman Marcus Mascoll and three-star offensive lineman Enoch Wangoy, who reclassified from 2025.

Gators Online has learned that the three top-100 transfers UF landed from the spring portal — receiver Elijhah Badger, cornerback Cormani McClain and offensive lineman Jason Zandamela — have all reported to campus as well.

With their arrival, all 19 high school signees from Florida’s 2024 class have enrolled in school. They join the 16 early enrollees and 12 transfers (including Jameer Grimsley and Brien Taylor). In total, UF added 34 players to its roster.

“It makes it real,” Florida general manager Jacob LaFrance said in the video below during move-in day. “It makes it joyful to be a part of and grateful to be a part of to see them and their families so joyful to be a Gator and actually move in.

“So, for us, this is a culmination of many years in the work. Our staff has been recruiting these guys for several years now and it’s kind of a full circle moment for them and their families, and for our staff too. It’s a great day.”

Florida’s 2024 class finished No. 10 in the On3 Industry team rankings, although it ranks No. 7 nationally in average player rating (91.16). Prior to Wangoy reclassifying, UF had its highest average playing rating (91.39) in a class since 2010 (91.83).

Chiles and Jackson join the Gators as two of the highest-rated players at their respective positions. The same can be said for transfers Badger and McClain, both of whom will be expected to make an immediate impact this fall.

Mascoll, Wangoy and Zandamela are three of eight offensive linemen that UF signed in the 2024 class, including five recruits from the high school ranks and a total of three transfers. Mascoll committed to Florida over LSU.

“We felt at home,” Mascoll father’s, Mark Mascoll, said below. “And the relationship was genuine, and we trusted that and we never even flinched. When I met [Billy] Napier, we sat there, we talked — me and the wife — and it was like, ‘Wow, this is what we are looking for.’ We can entrust of son with a group of people like this.”
