With the first National Signing Day of the 2020 cycle approaching, the Florida Gators are wasting little time adding to a class that has an opportunity to be among the top five in the nation when all is said and done. After adding a four-star offensive lineman on Friday morning, the Gators saw four-star defensive back Mordecai McDaniel (Washington, DC) commit to the program in the evening.

McDaniel (6-foot-1, 195 pounds) committed to Florida just one week after decommitting from Tennessee. He originally pledged to the Volunteers back in August and also took official visits to Penn State and Notre Dame. He is rated as the 333rd overall player in the Class of 2020.

“Though I really appreciate everything that Tennessee have offered me. I must follow my heart and with that being said … I would like to say that I will be attending the University of Florida #GoGators,” he tweeted.

With McDaniel now in the fold, the Gators have officially flipped one-time commitments from SEC East rivals Georgia and Tennessee in the same day. This just five days before National Signing Day for the early signing period on Wednesday, Dec. 18.

Florida’s class remains ranked No. 6 in the nation and No. 4 in the SEC. McDaniel is the 16th four-star commitment in the 24-person class. The Gators have not pulled in a class ranked higher than No. 9 since 2013.
