One day after landing a quarterback and running back for the class of 2023, the Florida Gators have picked up yet another big commitment on the offensive side of the ball.

Four-star wide receiver Eugene Wilson III picked UF over Texas A&M on Friday. The Gators were the favorite after hosting him four separate times, including an official visit on June 17 that closed out his process. After mulling things over for a few weeks, he decided to commit to his dream school and join a recruiting class that’s growing stronger by the day.

Wilson is ranked No. 147 overall on both the 247Sports composite and On3 consensus. That makes him the new highest-rated recruit in the class and his addition has Florida up to No. 19 on 247Sports’ team rankings. On3 has UF at No. 14 following the commitments of Wilson, Treyaun Webb and Marcus Stokes.

The flurry of good news has Gator Nation in better spirits than it was to start the month. Missing out on Jaden Rashada and Francis Mauigoa to Miami left a bad taste in many Florida fans’ mouths, but Napier has impressively flipped the narrative.

Wilson’s commitment brings Florida’s recruiting class of 2023 to 12 players. Billy Napier is going heavy at receiver with Tyree Patterson and Creed Whittemore also on board. Ricky Pearsall has also been added to the roster through the transfer portal.
