Will Muschamp received a special Valentine's Day gift Monday night.
After hosting a slew of junior prospects for Florida's first Junior Day of the year Saturday, Muschamp and his staff grabbed their first commit of the 2012 recruiting class — and Florida's third — when Seffner Armwood running back Matt Jones gave his verbal pledge to UF Monday night.
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Jones claims nearly 20 verbal offers and rushed for 1,447 yards and 25 touchdowns as a junior.
Jones is a part of the Rivals.com Rivals250 watch list and is a four-star prospect by Scout.com.
Calls and texts to Jones weren't immediately returned Monday night.
