Thanks to the Pouncey family, the Florida football family is getting a little bigger.
Brothers Ethan and Jordan Pouncey, cousins of former UF offensive linemen Mike and Maurkice Pouncey, announced their commitments to Florida via a video posted on Twitter on Sunday. They were in Gainesville on an unofficial visit to watch the Gators defeat rival Florida State, 40-17.
Jordan (wide receiver, Winter Park) played for Texas but entered the transfer portal. He was a three-star prospect and redshirted the 2017 season, played seven games in 2018 and played in five games in 2019 before deciding to transfer. Jordan played special teams in 2018 and caught two passes for 19 yards this year.
Ethan (corner, Winter Park) is a 2020 prospect who was previously committed to Texas but decommitted on Oct. 31. A four-star prospect, he is the No. 7 corner and No. 88 overall in the nation according to 247 Sports.
The brothers will prove critical in replacing starters and adding depth to a UF squad that will lose players to the draft. Florida will lose four wide receivers — Van Jefferson, Freddie Swain, Josh Hammond and Tyrie Cleveland — and likely corner CJ Henderson following its bowl game.
