Comments & ID Thoughts

A friend of mine lives in Florida. They found this spider in their kids bathtub and were worried it was a brown recluse. I've tried to cross reference photos but to me (bearing in mind I'm a complete and utter novice) it doesn't appear to have the exact same markings as a brown recluse! Any guess to what it may be?
