Gators land four-star WR/TE Jeremiah Johnson


After a recent string of de-commitments, Florida’s 2020 class is seemingly back on track.

Jeremiah Johnson, a four-star prospect out of Clinch County High in Homerville, Georgia, verbally committed to Florida and coach Dan Mullen after much speculation Wednesday.

Despite working primarily at wide receiver during his first three seasons in high school, the 6-foot-7, 215-pound Johnson is expected to transition to tight end at the collegiate level.

Johnson holds only a handful of offers, although he’s recently taken unofficial visits to Florida State and Auburn.

With Johnsons’ commitment, the Gators have seven verbal commits in the 2020 class.


  1. Love the size. Anyone seen any tape on this kid? He’s been playing receiver, so it seems to me that he’s a matchup problem for LB’s and safeties. I’m excited to see what Savage can do with that big body.

    • sounds exciting but there is a lot of back and forth that happens before they sign and even more before you know whether this is the right guy or not. We were tight end u for a while, with jordan reed and trey burton as well, but lets hope that will return.

      • I agree with you mveal, but this is the first REAL star TE prospect the Gators have sniffed at since Urban Meyer bailed out on us. BOTH guys you mention were recruited by Meyer back when UF WAS truly TE U…

        Then Meyer quit and Foley hired Muschump… Then Foley fired Muschump and hired McElwhiner… And here we are, living with an offense for the past 8 years where the TE is little more than a weak offensive lineman!

        This is such a refreshing change in approach to recruiting and player development on the offensive side of the ball!
