Florida’s 2018 class added its first member Friday with the commitment from a three-star in-state prospect.

Jalynn Williams, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound athlete from St. Petersburg, announced on his Twitter account that he was giving the Gators his verbal commitment.

The No. 44 overall athlete in the 2018 class, Williams picked up an offer in June from the Gators. Although his enrollment is nearly 18 months away, Williams will be in the mix to earn playing time at wide receiver upon arriving in Gainesville.

Verbal commitments are non-binding until an athlete signs a national letter of intent.
