The frenzy of Friday Night Lights has continued into Saturday’s cookout for the Florida football program. Just hours after landing a commitment from safety Jordan Castellan, the Gators secured the commitment of another blue-chip prospect in the 2023 recruiting cycle.
Former Miami Hurricanes commit, Andy Jean announced his commitment via social media Saturday, becoming the sixteenth commit in Florida’s class.
Jean, a four-star WR from Miami – Northwestern High, is the nation’s No. 42 WR and No. 332 prospect overall.

Florida beat out offers from Alabama, Tennessee, and Miami, among others. WR coach Keary Colbert led the charge for the Gators while DB coach Corey Raymond played a secondary role in Jean’s recruitment to UF.
Jean originally committed to Miami in January before de-committing a couple weeks after an unofficial visit to Gainesville in March. Three days after de-committing, Jean received an offer from the Gators’ staff.
As a junior at powerhouse Northwestern, Jean hauled in 40 reception for 733 yards and 8 touchdowns.
Florida is now ranked No. 12 nationally and is the fourth best class in the SEC in the 2023 recruiting cycle team rankings.
