5* QB Matt Corral commits to Gators 2018 class following unofficial visit


Florida landed a verbal commitment Saturday from the No. 2 ranked pro-style quarterback in the 2018 class who spent the weekend in Gainesville.

Matt Corral, the No. 23 overall player in the 2018 class by 247Sports composite, verbally committed to the Gators and coach Jim McElwain.

A five-star prospect, Corral de-committed from the University of Southern California June 17 and soon turned his attention to offers from Florida and Georgia.

This recruiting process has been an amazing and humbling journey,” Corral wrote on his Twitter account. “After thoughtful consideration and talking with my family, I have decided to take my talents to the University of Florida.”

With Corral’s verbal commitment, which is non-binding until he signs a letter of intent, the Gators have 12 commits in the 2018 class.
