With just nine days until Signing Day, Florida’s 2018 class flipped a commitment from Mississippi State.
Griffin McDowell, a 6-foot-4, 280-pound offensive lineman from Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County High, announced he was flipping his commitment from Mississippi State to Florida following an official visit last weekend with the Gators.

Ranked the No. 22 center in the 2018 class by 247Sports, McDowell had been recruited to Mississippi State by offensive line coach D.J. Looney, who took a job at Louisiana-Lafayette following head coach Dan Mullen’s transition to Florida.
With McDowell’s commitment, which is non-binding until he signs a letter of intent Feb. 7, Florida has three unsigned commitments in the 2018 class.
