The Florida Gators have their quarterback for the 2018 recruiting class. Five star quarterback Matt Corral (6-2, 196, Long Beach Poly, CA) committed to Florida a day after visiting campus for Friday Night Lights.

Corral was previously committed to Southern Cal. He pulled the trigger for the Trojan’s in February of 2016 but backed off that pledge in June. The Army All-American visited Florida for the very first time on Friday to watch Friday Night Lights and committed the very next day.
As a junior last season Corral threw for 3,025 yards on 151-of-235 (64%) passing. He added 22 touchdowns through the air and seven more on the ground.
Corral is the 12th commitment for the 2018 class and the first quarterback. Florida has four quarterbacks on the roster now but Malik Zaire is a fifth year senior and Luke Del Rio will be a redshirt senior when Corral arrives on campus in 2018.
