Florida Football Recruiting News: Gators Now In Lead For 4-Star 2016 WR?

Your Florida Football recruiting news update for September 10th:

The Florida Gators have been off the pace for four-star Citra (FL) North Marion wide receiver Freddie Swain for most of his recruiting process, but it appears the Gators have moved ahead for the dynamic wideout.

Per Luke Stampini of 247Sports, "Florida has surged into the likely driver’s seat for this Top247 prospect. Tennessee is still considered Florida’s top competition for Swain, but the confidence from the Vols in this recruitment has slowly dwindled as they fear the local Gators are surging. The last four predictions on the 247Sports Crystal Ball have all been for the Gators as well."

Swain visited the Gators for the team's season opener against New Mexico State and could return again this Saturday for the team's home contest against East Carolina. 

The 6-foot, 172-pounder is currently ranked as the #29 wide receiver in the Class of 2016, per 247Sports' Composite Rankings.
