Williams joins the Florida Gators class again

The Florida Gators started the week off on a high note as the coaching staff picked up another commitment on Monday morning.

Safety Deontai Williams (6-0, 185, Jones JUCO) committed to Florida on Monday morning after visiting the Gators over the weekend.

Williams was a former commit to Florida out of Jacksonville Trinity Christian but was unable to qualify so enrolled at Jones County JUCO last year. The safety was unable to play last year due to an ACL injury but his knee has checked out with all of the coaching staff’s.

The safety had a busy spring as he picked up offers from the likes of Alabama, LSU, Georgia among others after his knee was cleared.

Williams is the 9th commit for the class of 2018 and joins defensive backs C.J. Smith and Divaad Wilson as defensive backs committed in the class.

GatorCountry will continue to update this story with quotes from Williams throughout the day.
