When it comes to recruiting the state of Florida, the Gators continue to prioritize the Lakeland area.
6-foot-3, 210-pound Morven Joseph became the latest member of UF’s 2020 class when he opted to commit to the Gators on Friday.
Joseph, a quickly rising prospect out of Lake Gibson High in Lakeland, was on campus for Florida’s Junior Day on Feb. 2 after picking up a UF offer on Jan. 24. A rising senior, Joseph already holds offers from the likes of Texas A&M, Miami and Nebraska yet decided to commit to the Gators less than a month after receiving an offer from tight ends coach Larry Scott.
With Joseph’s verbal commitment the Gators have eight commits in the 2020 class, which is ranked No. 4 in the nation by 247Sports.
