Following the conclusion of Florida’s annual Friday Night Lights event, the Gators staff received their first return on the investment. 2021 quarterback Carlos Del Rio has committed to Florida.

The 6’2.5″, 201-pound recruit out of McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Georgia is currently a three star prospect according to his 0.8893 composite score. However, 247Sports is a little higher on his skill-set, awarding him a fourth star.

During an appearance at The Opening Regional, Del Rio impressed by recording a 4.85 forty time, as well as a 4.45 shuttle. Del Rio also showcased a 30.60″ vertical at the same event.

Florida was one of twelve schools to offer a scholarship to Del Rio and he selected the Gators over several of their top rivals, including FSU, Miami, Tennessee, Auburn, and Michigan.

The FNL event has been a profitable one for the Gators in the past. It will be interesting to see if they are able to draw any more commitments in the next few days, as a result.
