On the same day the Florida Gators saw a highly-rated tight end transfer out of the program, the team added a commitment from one in the 2014 class as four star Moral Stephens (Perry, FL) announced his intent to play for the University of Florida.
“I just committed to the university of Florida #GatorNation” he wrote early Thursday afternoon via his Twitter account.
Stephens (6-foot-3, 205-pounds) is ranked No. 191 overall by Rivals and No. 206 by ESPN, which also rates him as a four-star prospect.
His offer sheet was expansive including interest from Arkansas, Clemson, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Ohio State, South Carolina and others.
Though listed as a wide receiver, Stephens is expected to be a hybrid tight end in college, making him the third player at the position to join the Gators this cycle.
Florida also has pledges two other tight ends – four-star DeAndre Goolsby (Derby, KS) and C’yontai Lewis (Tuscaloosa, AL). Stephens is the fifth overall pass catcher on the Gators’ commitment list, which also includes two four-star wide receivers in Ermon Lane (Homestead, FL) and Ryan Sousa (Orlando, FL).
