Florida picked up the commitment of Justin Shorter on Sunday afternoon. The Gators were widely viewed as the favorite to land the Penn State transfer. With the departures of four senior wideouts from last season’s prolific receiving corps, Shorter will provide added depth and immediate experience to the Gators’ roster.

Shorter originally signed with Penn State as a five-star recruit before entering the transfer portal one year later. The 6’4″ 226-pound New Jersey native was the number one receiver in the 2018 class, ranking eighth overall.

With his large frame, sure hands, and quick burst make him a valuable addition to the Gators’ lineup. Shorter’s commitment is just another piece to Florida’s recent momentum on the recruiting trail. Jaquavion Fraziars, Jordan Pouncey, Xzavier Henderson, and Leonard Manuel have also pledged their commitments or signed their name’s to Florida’s 2020 class and will restock the cupboards for years to come.
