2019 DB Marcus Tillman Jr. commits to UF’s 2019 class


Florida’s 2019 class, ranked No. 1 nationally by 247Sports, picked up a verbal commitment Wednesday from a defensive back out of Orlando.

Marcus Tillman Jr., a 6-foot, 195-pound safety out of Jones high, verbally committed to Gators coach Jim McElwain over offers from Ohio State and Ole Miss.

McElwain confirmed Tillman’s commitment on his Twitter account.

With Tillman’s commitment, which is non-binding until he signs a letter of intent, the Gators have nine commits in the 2019 class.
