Florida Gators snag big one in four-star WR Tyrie Cleveland on National Signing Day

A last-weekend visit and the opportunity to return to his home state sealed the deal for four-star wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland (Houston, TX), who on Wednesday backed off his commitment to Houston and signed his National Letter of Intent to play for the Florida Gators in 2016.

Cleveland (6-foot-3, 189 pounds), the No. 33 player in the 2016 recruiting class per the 247Sports Composite, was Florida’s highest-rated target remaining and a player the Gators coveted as a potential impact player as a freshman. (He is now UF’s second-highest rated signee.)

That’s why one year after head coach Jim McElwain looked to be a miracle worker as the Gators hauled in an impressive crop of players on signing day – including two of their top three remaining prospects in five-stars defensive end CeCe Jefferson and offensive tackle Martez Ivey – Florida may get shut out on the day … and could even lose one or more of its committed players.

Indeed, with signing day less than 24 hours away, there appear to only be three players legitimately considering the Gators and none of them seem to have Florida as a true leader entering Wednesday.
