Florida’s 2020 class picked up its fifth commitment in the span of six days when Portsmouth (Va.) I.C. Norcom weak-side defensive end Antwaun Powell pledged to the Gators.

The 6-foot-3, 235-pound Powell is ranked the No. 6 weak-side defensive end in the 247Sports composite ranking. The four-star prospect committed to Florida over Michigan and Oklahoma, among others.

Powell’s addition brings UF’s 2020 recruiting class to 18 prospects and moves the Gators’ class ranking up No. 6 in 247Sports’ rankings. 

With Friday Night Lights, and the commencement of fall camp, a month away, Florida’s 2020 recruiting class could only just be getting started.
