With an important month on the recruiting trail ahead, Florida’s 2019 class started off July with a bang by landing a verbal commitment Sunday from an in-state linebacker formerly committed to Miami (Fl.)
Jesiah Pierre, a 6-foot-2, 225 pound linebacker out of Mount Dora, verbally committed to Florida and coach Dan Mullen after backing off a previous commitment to the Hurricanes.

Mullen confirmed Pierre’s commitment Monday.
Despite a consensus three-star designation, Pierre has earned praise throughout the state despite facing some of the weaker competition in the state throughout his high school career to date.

Pierre’s commitment, which is non-binding until he signs a letter of intent, gives Florida 11 commitments in the 2019 class.
