For the second time on National Signing Day, the Florida Gators landed a truly big fish and top target as five-star defensive end CeCe Jefferson (Glen Saint Mary, FL) officially announced his commitment to the program.
The No. 7 overall player and No. 2 defensive end in the Class of 2015, according to the 247Sports Composite, Jefferson (6-foot-2, 275 pounds) could be a monster along the Gators’ defensive line for years to come.
A dominant force for Baker County High School, his recruitment was an absolute whirlwind, but the long-time Gators fan ultimately chose his favorite team in the end.
Jefferson is the second five-star prospect to commit to Florida on National Signing Day and the fourth player overall to make his pledge for the Gators. He is the 18th member of UF’s still-growing 2015 recruiting class.[table “66” not found /]
