Florida’s options at quarterback continue to dwindle as summer approaches for the 2015 recruiting cycle.
Tampa Hillsborough’s Dwayne Lawson made a surprise commitment Thursday to Miami, a school he had never mentioned as a favorite. UF held the edge for him following his visit in late March.
He’s the second QB to spurn the Gators for another team after naming them the leader. Rivals100 member Kelly Bryant committed to Clemson last month just five days removed from calling UF his top school.
The candidate who has emerged is Sheriron Jones of Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde, the same high school Ronald Powell attended. The consensus four-star recruit was offered by UF last week and plans to visit Gainesville this summer
Shortly after Lawson’s verbal to UM, Rivals.com’s West recruiting analyst Adam Gorney tweeted this:
There’s no doubt #Florida is aggressively pursuing four-star QB Sheriron Jones for a commitment.
