This time it’s south Florida defensive back Shawn Davis from Southridge high school who pledge to the Gators today via Twitter.
Head coach Jim McElwain confirmed the commitment with his now famous Gator bat signal.
Davis is a three-star prospect in the 247sports composite rankings but looks much better than his number 500 overall ranking.
He’s a versatile defensive back with good size, great play recognition, natural instincts, solid ball skills, and he’s a fierce hitter who doesn’t shy away from contact.
He uses his hands well in man-press and has good hips in coverage.
The Gators have led for sometime for him though he was still considering the hometown Hurricanes, his other finalist.
His commitment makes sixteen total so far for the Gators in the 2017 recruiting cycle and is the fifth in the month of August.
He joins Marco Wilson and Elijah Blades in what will ultimately be a large defensive back class for the Gators.
