Florida landed another cornerback recruit Wednesday when Jalen Julius chose to attend the school.

The Orlando West Orange product pulled the trigger during a conversation with UF coach Will Muschamp.

"We just had a great talk, and it felt like the right time," he said.

The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder attended one of Florida's spring practices and has been thinking about committing ever since his visit.

"I felt a good vibe when I went there, and my mom loved it," he said. "I'm really comfortable with my decision."

Julius picked the Gators over Ohio State, Ole Miss and Oregon State. Earlier this month, UF landed Rivals100 cornerback Marcus Lewis from Washington, D.C.

Florida now has seven members in its 2015 class.
