Just two weeks after Florida lost its lone commitment for the Class of 2015 the Gators have picked up their first commitment again.

This time its defensive back Deontai Williams (6-1, 185, Jacksonville, FL Trinity Christian) who committed to Travaris Robinson.

“I have committed to Florida,” Williams said. “My coach called coach Travaris Robinson today and told him the news that I was committing.”

For Williams who just recently picked up an offer from the Gator the decision to commit to Florida was an easy one for him.

“I bleed orange and blue,” Williams said. “I have been a Florida fan since the day I was born and that will never change with me so it was an easy choice.”

Williams who can play multiple positions says it doesn’t matter where he plays at Florida he’s just glad to be a Gator.

“There isn’t one thing in particular I like about Florida it’s everything about them,” Williams said. “When I talk to Florida they tell me that I can play multiple places and I told them I would play any position that will help us win games in the Swamp.”

Trinity Christian is loaded with talent and in particular loaded in the Class of 2015. Williams says he’s already going to work on some of those other guys.

“I’m trying to recruit those guys right now,” Williams said. “I want to get Jeffrey [Holland] and Kendrick [Norton] to be Gators with me next year. I’m going to also try to recruit some other players from the state of Florida after I see who Florida wants.”

In the day in age where recruits flip between schools , Gator fans don’t have to worry about Williams pulling any of that stuff.

“I’ve been solid to Florida since they offered me and that isn’t changing,” Williams said. “I will probably visit Florida sometime this spring or before then.”
