4* WR John Dunmore de-commits from UF’s 2019 class


Florida’s 2019 class continues to take hits.

John Dunmore, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound wide receiver out of Chaminade-Madonna Prep in Hollywood (Fl.), announced on Twitter his de-commitment from the Gators.

Dunmore, ranked the No. 25 wide receiver in the 2019 class by 247Sports, committed to the Gators back in April. Dunmore’s cousin, defensive end Cameron Williams, recently flipped from Florida to Miami.

With Dunmore’s de-commitment, the Gators have four verbal commitments in the 2019 class.


  1. If you can’t recruit you can’t win. Coaching is a small percentage of a winning team. It’s the players who win championships. Unfortunately, the coaches are getting the accolades. Does anyone really think Sabin would have won his 6 national championships with primarily 3-star players? Having year after year of 5-star and the elite 4-star players does not hurt !! Bottom line — you have to recruit the best in order to be the best regardless of the style of football a coach implements. We will see if Coach Mullen can get the 5-star and elite 4-star players. If not, then same oh same oh for the Gators !!

  2. Apparently, Dunmore is talented and would not have 4* next to his name if he was not. I am sure there are many reasons for his defection. However, the timing of two days after another 4* (Watkins) commits is interesting. These prima donnas want there heinies wiped and guarantees made. Sabin does not do that and I don’t see why we should. Time will tell.

    • Kevin, I agree with the timing issue, but let us realize that some of these recruits don’t really want STIFF competition, NOT SAYING THAT IS THE CASE HERE, but very interesting on the timing. And with his cousin gone he may not feel comfortable being up here all alone, he probably will feel more comfortable in Miami, GOOD LUCK Mr. Dunmore. Keep Moving Forward GATORS!!! BTW i don’t know what his motivation to decommnit was, I just thought it was an interesting timing, that’s all!!!

    • I wouldnt read too much into any verbal commitment made a year and a half early. Really, I wouldnt sweat a verbal made 2 weeks early. It cant be a loss because we never had him. Verbal commitments are basically just a recruit saying “Right now, I like your team best.”, especially by a junior in high school. Its just talk, hence “verbal”.
