Florida’s 2020 class flipped four-star safety Mordecai McDaniel from Tennessee late Friday night, giving the Gators another commitment from a highly recruited prospect.
McDaniel took an official visit to UF back in April for the Orange and Blue game, and defensive backs coach Torrian Gray didn’t stop pursuing the Washington, D.C., native throughout the season despite his now-prior pledge to the Volunteers.
In addition to McDaniel, ranked the No. 15 cornerback by 247Sports, the Gators hold commitments from safeties Rashad Torrence and Marc Britt in a class ranked No. 6 in the nation with the early signing period less than a week away.
McDaniel’s pledge gives UF 24 commitments in the 2020 class.
