Florida’s 2020 class hasn’t lost any momentum — in fact, things appear to be looking up for the Gators and coach Dan Mullen.

Jonathan Odom, a 6-foot-6 tight end and the son of former Gators offensive lineman Jason Odom, verbally committed to Florida while unofficially visiting UF for the 2nd annual Gator Grill Out.

Mullen confirmed Odom’s commitment shortly after the Tampa Jesuit prospect’s announcement.

Odom will have quite a name to live up to when he puts pen to paper and arrives at UF. Jason Odom was a four-year starter at UF from 1992-95 under Steve Spurrier, and, among numerous other accolades, was ranked No. 28 in The Gainesville Sun’s list of top 100 Gators from the first 100 years of Florida football.

Odom, ranked by 247Sports as the No. 32 tight end in the 2020 class, is the 11th prospect to commit to UF’s 2020 class, which is currently ranked No. 8 in the nation.
