Another Orlando Lake Nona receiver is headed to Florida.

The Gators landed their second 2015 commit Friday when Deondre Farrier said he would attend UF.

He is teammates with Florida receiver signee Ryan Sousa.

Lake Nona coach Anthony Paradiso said Farrier called Will Muschamp to deliver the news, choosing the Gators over offers from Miami and South Florida, among others.

The 6-foot, 173-pound three-star prospect caught 55 passes for 909 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds at the Under Armour combine Jan. 2.

Farrier joins Jacksonville Trinity Christian safety Deontai Williams as the second member of Florida's 2015 class. Verbal commitments are not binding until prospects sign their national letters of intent.
