Florida head coach Billy Napier is in the home stretch of recruiting for the 2023 cycle, but that doesn’t mean he can’t look ahead to the 2024 class. The 2024 class is off to a fast start as 5-star quarterback DJ Lagway announced his commitment Wednesday afternoon.
Lagway is a 6’2, 215 lb prospect from Willis, Texas. He completed 67% of his passes for 2,081 yards and 24 touchdowns while only throwing five interceptions. Additionally, Lagway ran for seven scores and more than 500 yards while maintaining a 10+ yard per carry average.
Since October, Lagway has visited a number of blue-blood programs including Oklahoma, Clemson, and Southern Cal in addition to a October 15 trip to Gainesville.
Lagway presently holds 33 offers from most of the nation’s elite programs including Alabama, Georgia, and Texas A&M in addition to the schools he’s visited recently. Offensive analyst of quarterbacks Ryan O’Hara led the charge in the recruitment of the Lone Star State prospect, landing his second top prospect at the position (Jaden Rashada, 2023 class).
Lagway is the nation’s No. 24 overall prospect and the No. 4 QB in the 2024 class per the 247Sports composite rankings.
Lagway becomes the third member of the Gators’ 2023 class, joining 4-star LB Myles Graham and 4-star RB Chauncey Bowens.
