The Florida Gators are one of those teams, as head coach Will Muschamp and his staff are trying to add even more talent to an already loaded Top 10 class.

Florida has already received commitments from highly-touted prospects like defensive back Jalen Tabor and dual-threat quarterback Will Grier, but this has the potential to be an even greater class if a few five-star talents choose Gainesville as their college destination.

Let's take a look at three players that could give Muschamp and company a massive boost when the signings take place on Wednesday:

Adoree' Jackson - Athlete (Gardena, CA)

We might as well start with the best player available, and the one that would make Florida fans dance in their living rooms should he commit to the Gators. Jackson is a five-star cornerback out of Southern California, and just recently, he narrowed down his final four to Florida, LSU, USC, and UCLA.

Now, UCLA seemingly doesn't have a chance. That means it's a three-way race between the Gators, Tigers, and Trojans. My guess is that it will ultimately come down to Florida and USC for his services, although LSU is making a huge final push for him.

Jackson would be an instant star for the Gators, and his play-making ability will be off the charts no matter where he winds up.

Damian Prince - Offensive Tackle (District Heights, MD)

The 6-foot-5, 295-pound five star offensive tackle is a hot commodity heading into Wednesday, and rightfully so. He's the second-best offensive lineman in this class (behind Alabama commit Cameron Robinson), and should instantly be a major factor on the line of whatever team he ends up playing for.

While most believe that Prince will choose Maryland when all is said and done, he did visit Florida this weekend. And as we always say in recruiting, you never know what type of impact a visit will make and how it may affect a player's decision.

Heading into Signing Day, Gator fans should probably expect Prince to be a Terrapin. Then you can be pleasantly surprised if he isn't.

Lorenzo Carter - Weakside Defensive End (Norcross, GA)

Who knows if Carter will sign for the Gators, but one of the best moments of this year's recruiting trail was a couple of days ago when both Florida and Florida State coaches sat on opposite sides of Carter's parents during his high school basketball game.

Of course, Muschamp would love to add the 6-foot-5, 235-pound five-star defensive end to his defense. Carter is considered by most to be the best player in the state of Georgia, so it would be nice to go in and pick up another state's finest.

However, it looks like Mark Richt and the Georgia Bulldogs are currently leading the Carter sweepstakes. So stealing him from their hands may prove to be difficult. 

With both Prince and Carter leaning in different directions at this moment in time, Muschamp is without question banking on Jackson.

If he somehow gets all three, it would be a monster class that would send Florida to the next level. But, if he misses out on all three, it'll leave he and his staff wondering what might have been with these three outstanding talents.
