The Gators landed a second star recruit Sunday night when WR CJ Smith announced his verbal commitment to Florida on Twitter.

Smith, a 6-foot-3 Orlando native, is a four-star recruit on Rivals and a three-star recruit and the Class of 2022’s 53rd-ranked wide receiver on 247, visited UF on Friday.

An attendant of Bishop Moore Catholic High School, Smith received offers from Alabama, Georgia, Auburn, and Notre Dame, among others. He totaled 361 receiving yards for four touchdowns at 15.7 yards per reception as a junior during the 2020-21 season.

Smith also sprinted for Bishop Moore’s track team and set school records in the 100-meter dash (10.28s) and 200-meter dash (20.62s), offering his speed to the Gators at the next level.

Smith joined Alabama linebacker Shemar James committing to Florida on Sunday and six other recruits, including four-star WR Isaiah Bond, in UF’s class of 2022.
