Last weekend’s comeback win over Tennessee generated tons of recruiting buzz and momentum for Florida football.

Saturday’s rout of No. 3 Ole Miss produced a commitment for the Gators.

Pahokee athlete McArthur Burnett pledge to UF following its 38-10 win over the Rebels. He chose Florida over Florida State and Miami, the school he was formerly committed to, among others.

Burnett camped at UF on June 8 and decommitted from the Hurricanes two days later. He then returned to Gainesville for Friday Night Lights and was a standout performer at cornerback, the position he’ll play for the Gators.

The 6-foot, 185-pounder is rated a four-star prospect by Scout and ranked 187th nationally. Other recruiting services have him as a three-star athlete.

Florida now has 21 members in its 2016 class, which is No. 14 in team rankings. Verbal commitments are not binding until recruits sign their national letters of intent.
