DB Roberson ends up in Florida orange and blue

It didn’t take long for Florida Gators fans to breathe at least a mini sigh of relief on Wednesday as four-star defensive back Marcus Roberson announced that he has committed to the school and sent in his National Letter of Intent.

A former commitment to Texas Tech, Roberson decided to change his pledge to Auburn on Monday before completely pulling out of that commitment on Tuesday. Florida, which had been in the mix for a beginning, ends up the recipient of his services.

Roberson is the Gators 18th commitment for the 2011 cycle and the team’s fourth defensive back. He is listed as the No. 2 cornerback (No. 37 overall player) available by Rivals and No. 9 safety (No. 112 overall player) in the nation by ESPNU.

His commitment was first reported by 247Sports.

OGGOA will update this story as the day goes on.

    If he plays like Cody Riggs played last year he will be in for a lot of playing time early.

    Now that’s a snatch and grab job for Muschamp and our staff!!! Add Grant and Rasco, and we end up with an amazing signing class.
