Gators re-offer once-committed DB Elijah Blades


Florida coach Dan Mullen have apparently offered a scholarship to a JUCO prospect who is no stranger to UF.

Elijah Blades, a former four-star prospect and current cornerback at Arizona Western College, was re-offered a scholarship from the University of Florida on Thursday, but this time it came from a new coaching staff.

Blades was previously verbally committed to UF’s 2017 class under coach Jim McElwain, but he opted to flip his commitment to Nebraska following an official visit. Blades never signed with the Cornhuskers, however, instead heading to junior college in Arizona.
