Gators jump in recruiting rankings after recent commitments

·2 min read

Fresh off the heels of two high-profile Thursday commitments, the Florida Gators have risen in 247Sports’ 2023 team recruiting rankings.

After waking up ranked 43rd in the country, the Gators went to bed Thursday night with the 26th overall recruiting class. It started with Napier flipping four-star quarterback recruit Markus Stokes from Penn State. The 6-foot-2-inch, 185-pound signal-caller out of Nease High School (same high school that Tim Tebow played at) in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, was a morale boost for the Florida fanbase after missing out on blue-chip QB Jaden Rashada just one week ago. Flipping a quarterback prospect just up the road from Gainesville from a top-tier program like the Nittany Lions’ did a lot for the perception of the program.

The Gators also landed the services of four-star running back Treyaun Webb. The Jacksonville native plays his high school football at Trinity Christian Academy and committed to the Gators shortly after Stokes announced he had flipped programs. The 6-foot-1-inch, 205-pound ball-carrier chose the Gators over Penn State and South Carolina, where he was being recruited by former Florida coaches Ja’Juan Seider (Penn State) and Torrian Gray (South Carolina).

These rankings came out before four-star athlete Eugene Wilson III chose to commit to the Gators over Texas A&M on Friday afternoon. The Gators are expected to rise in the rankings even more after Wilson III’s commitment, with the potential to secure more commitments over the weekend.
