Florida has its quarterback for 2015

The Gators have finally landed their quarterback for the Class of 2015. Sheriron Jones (6-2, 189, Moreno Valley, CA. Rancho Verde) has committed to Florida over Tennessee, Arizona and several others.

“I’m committed to Florida,” Jones said. “Florida is family and felt like home.”

Jones camped at Florida on Saturday after he took a visit to Tennessee but the relationship he has developed with offensive coordinator Kurt Roper was the difference maker and Jones was looking forward to learning from the offensive guru.

“Coach Roper has told me about his background and it’s impressive I just wanted to sit down and talk with him and I did,” Jones said. “I just wanted to learn more about him and work with him to see what I could  pick up from him. He tells me all the time that he can help me become a better quarterback.”

Jones who was just recently invited to the Elite 11 camp in Oregon this summer had 20 scholarship offers and has seen his recruitment explode over the spring.

With Jones’ commitment the Gators now have 9 verbal commitments in the Class of 2015 and have their quarterback for the class.

GC will have much more on the commitment of Jones throughout the day.
