Just hours after three-star safety Bryce Thornton announced his commitment to Florida, the Gators landed another blue-chip prospect in the secondary. 4-star DB Dijon Johnson announced his commitment to Florida Thursday evening to cap a big day on the recruiting trail for the Gators.
Johnson is ranked as the nation’s No. 96 overall prospect and No. 7 safety in the 2023 recruiting cycle according to the 247 composite rankings.

Johnson committed to Ohio State in April but backed off his pledge after attending the Friday Night Lights camp in the Swamp at the end of July. He has made multiple trips to Gainesville and will take an official visit this weekend against LSU.
The 6’1, 190 lb prospect from Tampa was recruited by DB coach Corey Raymond and DC Patrick Toney and chose Florida over Ohio State, Alabama, Auburn, and many more.
Johnson is the twenty-second commitment Florida has taken in the 2023 class. Florida has risen all the way to No. 8 in 247’s team rankings with this commitment.
