Gators land commitment from No. 2 kicker in 2018 class

Florida has found its latest kicker.

Evan McPherson, a 6-foot, 165-pound prospect out of Fort Payne, Alabama, flipped his verbal commitment from Mississippi State to the Gators.

Mullen confirmed McPherson’s commitment via his Twitter account.

McPherson, who took an official visit Saturday to Florida, is ranked by 247Sports as the nation’s No. 2 kicker in the 2018 class.

With McPherson’s commitment, which is non-binding until he signs a letter of intent, the Gators have 14 verbal commitments in the 2018 class.
