Ole Miss flips 4-star Florida QB commit Matt Corral
Major recruiting news in the SEC.
Four-star QB Matt Corral (Long Beach, CA) flipped his commitment from the Florida Gators to the Ole Miss Rebels Thursday night. The 6-foot-2, 196-pound signal caller is rated as the nation’s No. 3 pro-style QB and the state of California’s No. 8 overall prospect, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Corral released the news via his Twitter account:
“A lot played into this. Coach Matt Luke is a family-oriented guy,” said Corral to 247Sports. “I figured I wouldn’t miss a beat if I went there from California. It’s like home. The offense they run, it may not be what I’ve said in the past, but talking to people I trust and those I believe in, I know this won’t be a bad decision for me. That offense will help me show off my talents on the biggest stage. Plus, and to top it all off, this is the SEC West.”
Obviously, this is major news for the Rebels and Gators. Ole Miss and Matt Luke have its QB of the future, while Dan Mullen and Florida will be looking for another one.
Corral threw for nearly 2,500 yards and 29 TDs during the 2017 season, and he’s ranked as the nation’s No. 60 overall player.
