Florida football recruiting: Gators add Jordan Young, third 2021 DB in four days
Football

The Florida Gators’ defensive backfield has added its third 2021 commitment over the last four days as three-star Jordan Young (Tampa, FL) gave a verbal pledge to the program on Sunday afternoon. He picked Florida out of a significant offer list including schools such as Alabama, Florida State, Georgia and Miami.

Young (6-foot, 185 pounds) told 247Sports that UF is his “dream school” and the Gators have been in heavy pursuit since they offered him last year. He is expected to be a versatile weapon for the secondary.

Young’s decision comes on the heels of two more 2021 in-state defensive back commitments. Three-star Dakota Mitchell (Winter Park, FL) decommitted from LSU to flip to Florida on Thursday, and four-star Kamar Wilcoxson (Bradenton, FL) rejoined the Gators for the third time in his recruitment, decommitting from Tennessee on Friday.

Florida now has 18 underclassmen commitments (10 four-stars, eight three-stars) as part of its Class of 2021, which is ranked eighth nationally after being seventh entering the weekend. The Gators are also counting a pair of former commitments now in junior college — linebacker Diwun Black and guard Deyavie Hammond — as part of their class, giving them 20 overall for this cycle. Black is ranked as the No. 1 overall JUCO player in the nation, per 247Sports.
