Florida added another defensive back to their 2021 recruiting class Sunday evening as Jordan Young, of Gaither High School, pledged his commitment.
The 6’0″ 185-pound cornerback is currently a three-star recruit with a 247Sports composite rating of 0.8867. The Tampa native chose Florida from a list of 26 total offers. Other programs that were interested in Young include Alabama, Ole Miss, and Arkansas.
In the end, Torrian Gray and Christian Robinson convinced the young athlete to stay close to home.
Despite his three-star rating, Young is a ball hawk. He displays a keen talent for locating the ball in the air and attacking it cleanly.Aside from his timing and soft hands, Young’s presence adds even more depth to the Gators’ talented secondary.
Gators fans will want to watch out for this talented athlete in the very near future.
Young is Florida’s twentieth commitment of the 2021 recruiting cycle and the Gators currently sit at No. 8 in the 247 national rankings.
