Adding to its recent recruiting haul on Monday, the Florida Gators picked up a commitment from three-star athlete/safety Kylan Johnson (Dallas, TX).
Johnson (6-foot-3, 210 pounds), who committed to Kansas State just three days ago, received an offer from Florida on Friday morning and took an official visit to see the Gators over the weekend, according to 247Sports‘ Ryan Bartow, who first reported Johnson’s latest decision.
Listed as the 88th best safety nationally, Johnson was recruited by Gators linebackers coach Randy Shannon, who has already made an impact on the recruiting trail for Florida. Where Johnson will shine for UF is as a multi-purpose athlete who will eventually be placed in an appropriate role by head coach Jim McElwain and the staff.
Johnson also claimed offers from Arkansas, Wisconsin and UCLA.
He is the sixth 2015 commitment that the Gators have added in the last nine days, all of which have been three-star prospects. Florida now has 14 total pledges for the Class of 2015.
