Florida’s 2018 class picked up a verbal commitment Saturday from an in-state wide receiver on an official visit in Gainesville.
Justin Watkins, a 6-foot, 175-pound wide receiver out of Clermont (Fl.) East Ridge, verbally committed to the Gators and coach Dan Mullen while taking an official visit at UF.

Watkins, ranked a four-star prospect and the No. 21 wide receiver in the 2018 class by 247Sports, is the first wide receiver to commit to in this recruiting cycle.
Watkins’ commitment, which is non-binding until he signs a letter of intent Feb. 7 on National Signing Day, gives the Gators their 15th prospect committed in the 2018 class, and he becomes just the second recruit who has yet to enroll early or sign a letter of intent.
