Florida’s 2018 class landed a verbal commitment Sunday from a three-star athlete out of Miami.
Nigel Bethel Jr., a 5-foot-11, 160-pounder out of Northwestern High, verbally committed to interim coach Randy Shannon and the Gators via his Twitter account. He also has offers from Georgia, Miami and Louisville, among others.
