High school juniors invaded Gainesville, Florida, on Saturday as the Florida Gators held their first official Junior Day under new head coach Dan Mullen. Before the day was out, Florida’s formerly top-rated 2019 recruiting class grew by two names as the Gators received a pair of verbal commitments Saturday evening.

Three-stars linebacker Jammal Abrams (Birmingham, AL) and wide receiver Dionte Marks (Deland, FL) committed to Florida one after another. Neither boasted a massive offer list entering the day, though Louisville and Oregon are both after Abrams.

“110% committed to the UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA,” tweeted Abrams. “We gone make this Legendary….. Committed,” Marks wrote later.

The Gators originally offered Abrams (6-foot-3, 224 pounds) back in January, whereas Marks (5-foot-11, 178 pounds) has long let it be known that UF would be his destination if the staff were to accept his commitment.

Prior to the departure of Jim McElwain, Florida’s 2019 class was ranked No. 1 in the nation. There have been numerous defections since his firing, as one would expect, and the Gators now sit at No. 17 in the nation, seventh in the SEC and behind both of their in-state rivals.
