The Florida Gators closed National Signing Day strong on Wednesday, adding four commitments in a 30-minute stretch, the last of which was four-star athlete D’Anfernee McGriff (Tallahassee, FL).
A talented and versatile prospect, McGriff (6-foot-1, 230 pounds) is rated as the No. 273 overall player in the nation and 21st best running back, according to the 247Sports Composite.
At Tallahassee Leon High School, McGriff did a little of everything on offense. He rushed for 2,025 yards and 29 touchdowns on 189 carries as a junior and combined to catch and run for over 1,000 yards with 14 touchdowns as a senior.
Academics are believed to be an issue with McGriff but with Florida having plenty of space in its recruiting class, the Gators were able to take a chance on him not qualifying. Should that occur, UF would help him find a junior college to play at for two years, looking to bring him back to the program afterward.
McGriff is Florida’s 21st commitment, one-third of which have come on National Signing Day. He is also the fourth offensive playmaker to commit to the Gators this week.[table “66” not found /]
