The 6’2, 180 lb prospect from Orlando is rated a four-star prospect by the 247Sports composite rankings. He is the nation’s No. 13 ranked WR in the 2023 class and the No. 72 overall player in the recruiting cycle.
Mizell opted to commit to Florida despite offers from Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee, among many others. Keary Colbert served as his primary recruiter since taking over Florida’s wide receiver group while TE coach Darnell Stapleton played a secondary role.
The Boone High School product hauled in 47 receptions for 1,003 yards and 18 touchdowns in his junior campaign. He also runs track at Boone as he qualified for state championships in the 100 meter and 400 meter events.
Mizell is the fourteenth commitment in Florida’s 2023 class. The Gators rose to No. 14 in the 247Sports rankings with the pledge.
