1. Gators recruiting heats up: It’s going to be a busy week for Florida’s football coaches. The Gators coaching staff will be on the road this week for the first time in the evaluation period. Florida’s No. 1 priority will be to visit high schools around the state. Gators coaches are scheduled to visit more than 300 high schools this week to evaluate 2017, 2018 and 2019 recruits, according to SEC Country. Stay tuned for recruiting updates throughout the week …

2. Draft week: After months of evaluation, the NFL Draft will finally take place this week. It begins Thursday with Round 1, continues with Rounds 2-3 on Friday, and concludes with Rounds 4-7 on Saturday. The Gators could have three players drafted in the first round — cornerback Vernon Hargreaves, defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard and safety Keanu Neal. Florida has not had three players drafted in the first round since 2010.

3. Day to remember: It was a fun Sunday for the Gators. The Florida men’s and women’s tennis teams each won the SEC Tournament championship, and the lacrosse team claimed its second consecutive Big East Conference crown. Pretty productive day for the Gators.
