Hosting prospects the weekend of the 2017 Orange & Blue Debut, the Florida Gators hauled in three new commitments over the weekend – all in the Class of 2019.
Four-star athlete Tyrique Stevenson (Homestead, FL) and four-star wide receiver John Dunmore (Delray Beach, FL) both made verbal pledges to the program over the weekend.
With their additions, the Gators now have five commitments for 2019 with their class standing at No. 1 in the nation for the cycle with 23 months to go until that class’ National Signing Day.
In the meantime, Florida’s 2018 class has just five members and one four-star commitment, safety C.J. Smith (West Palm Beach, FL). It is ranked 21st nationally and sixth in the SEC. The Gators added three-star tight end/offensive tackle Jalen Goss (Valdosta, GA) on Friday and three-star WR Corey Gammage (Delray Beach, FL) on Saturday.
As Florida waits to build its 2018 class, Miami has secured 10 of the top 46 prospects in the state, compared to just one for UF in Smith. The Canes rank No. 1 nationally for 2018 with 15 commitments (one five-star, nine four-stars), while Florida State is sixth with eight pledges.
