Florida has landed two commitments in the past few days and Texas A&M and Auburn both pulled in new ones as the SEC Class of 2015 grew by four more members.
The Gators have proven that even with a tough 2013 season and a coach on the hot seat, they still can bring in talent–especially in-state talent. Offensive tackle Tyler Jordan (6-4/280) is out of Bishop Kenny in Jacksonville and committed over the weekend, while WR Deondre Farrier (6-0/175) came aboard late Friday. The class size now stands at three for Florida. Both are rated high end three-star prospects.
“I’m extremely excited to be a part of the 2015 class because I want to be a part of the new offense with coach (Kurt) Roper,” Jordan told Saturday Down South. “I know that even with the injuries and the season that they had, the addition of coach Roper and the new offensive line coach (Mike) Summers, we are going to bounce back. They like my athleticism and my overall aggressiveness mixed with my footspeed.”
The third Gator commitment of this class is DB Deontai Williams, who came aboard in early January.
- Deshawn Capers-Smith is from New Orleans and attended LSU’s junior day earlier this month, but he didn’t come back with an offer from the Tigers. The cornerback also held an offer from MIssouri, and also liked his offers from Boise State, Texas Tech and UCLA among others. He is a three-star prospect and eighth overall commitment for the Aggies.
- Running back Elijah Sullivan was the first addition to come aboard for Auburn after it hosted its junior day. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound back holds a scholarship offer from Florida and in-state Georgia Tech. Sullivan is a three-star back out of Tucker (Ga.). He also attended a junior day with Georgia this month, though he does not report an offer from the Bulldogs. He is Auburn’s fourth commitment for 2015.
