Florida picks up commitment from 4-star 2018 RB Dameon Pierce
Back in May, 4-star 2018 RB Dameon Pierce decided to de-commit from Alabama and reopen his recruiting process.
On Sunday, he made a decision on his future, pledging his services to the Florida Gators.
Pierce, a Georgia native, announced his choice on Twitter on Sunday afternoon:
According to the 247Sports composite, Pierce is the No. 9 running back in the class of 2018 and the No. 21 overall recruit from state of Georgia.
The 5-11, 205-pound back also had shown interest in Auburn, Georgia, Florida State and other elite programs.
Pierce is the 17th player in Florida’s 2017 recruiting class, which is currently rated No. 3 in the SEC and No. 8 nationally by 247Sports.
