Urban Meyer Thinks Gators Could Take Next Step In 2020

Former Florida Gators head coach Urban Meyer appeared on FS1 Friday morning, and said that he expects the Gators to be a top five team in the 2020 season, potentially reaching even higher:

“First of all Dan Mullen is an excellent coach. They have to beat Georgia. They have their quarterback coming back, but there is chaos in the state of Florida. Miami is down. Florida State is down, and when that happens -- you start taking advantage, and what that means is that all those great players. -- you have the flagship university in the state of Florida and you start getting those kids in there. I’d look for the Gators to push that top-five -- maybe even higher.” Meyer on FS1, via 247Sports

Meyer coached Florida from 2005-2010 and led them to two national championships during that stint.
