Gators land 2015 gem out of Jacksonville prep hotbed for talent


Anybody tired of the good recruiting news for the Gators? After the way the 2013 season went, Florida fans aren’t.

Florida landed 2015 class member No. 1 this week when DB Deontai Williams chose the Gators. He hails from Jacksonville (Fla.), specifically from Florida powerhouse Trinity Christian. He is a 6-foot-0, 175-pound safety who also held scholarship offers from Mississippi State, UCLA and Louisville, among others. Williams is the lone 2015 commit for Florida right now, as WR Da’Vante Phillips of south Florida pulled back his commitment during the past few weeks.

Trinity Christian is arguably one of the nation’s top hotbeds for talent in the 2015 class. It is the location of Williams’ secondary teammate Kevin Toliver–the No. 1 prospect in America who is currently committed to LSU. Defensive tackle Kendrick Norton just committed to Florida State, the same day Williams went with the Gators. LB Andre Smith is already on board with North Carolina while fellow LB Victor Alexander is heading to UCLA. And LB Jeffrey Holland just released his top six, which includes Florida, Alabama and Auburn, while DB Ben Edwards also has plenty of options.

It’s almost definitely the most talented group of defensive players in high school football for 2015, that much is for certain. And having Williams be an unofficial recruit on Trinity Christian’s campus would be huge for Florida and head coach Will Muschamp.

Also, don’t forget that senior (class of 2014) offensive Kavaris Harkless already is on campus as an early enrollee, and he is also from Trinity Christian.
