Gators Online Show: Florida lands Elijhah Badger, Cormani Mcclain

Welcome to the Gators Online Show! For episode 92, co-hosts Zach Abolverdi and Nick de la Torre discuss new Florida commitments Elijhah Badger and Cormani McClain.

We open the show with Friday’s pledge from Badger, the No. 1 receiver available in the portal. He’s a top-100 overall transfer and picked the Gators over Arizona, where his former position coach now works. We discuss the significance of Badger’s commitment and how he fits into the WR room.

We then break down the addition of McClain, who is the top-ranked transfer in Florida’s 2024 class, and his potential impact in the Gators secondary. He had a tumultuous freshman season with Colorado, but still started four games. His elite ability at cornerback could make a difference at UF.

We wrap up the show by assessing Florida’s transfer haul as a whole and how the UF staff put together its best portal class under Billy Napier. The Gators signed a total 14 transfers in the 2024 cycle, including four top-100 players in the On3 Industry rankings.
