Ranked as the 50th best receiver in the nation and 28th best player overall in the state of Georgia according to Rivals. Caught 32 passes for 865 yards and 12 touchdowns during his junior season. Helped lead the Tigers to a 12-2 record in his senior season. Also had offers from Alabama, Clemson and Georgia.

Quotable: “I have always liked Florida. Coach Muschamp was fired up when I told him that I was ready to be a Gator. He said he couldn’t wait to tell all of the coaches when we got off the phone.” — Hawkins told Gator Country.com.
