About mid way through the recruiting shenanigans, I wondered how our new pipeline of Florida would effect the University of Florida. I posted the question before, but now that we have actual numbers, we can look at it. This isn't to say that Michigan was the only contributer, because there were a lot of schools that got Florida recruits also. Anyway...
This year Florida only had 16 total recruits. Granted they still have a lot of high end recruits, only 16 total. 9 of those kids are from Florida. This compares to the past like this. (I know, the argument can be made that they're returning their whole defense, blah, blah, but they also just won the national championship too)

-2008 - 22 commits with 9 from Florida
-2007 - 27 commits with 18 from Florida
