    2014 Gator Commitment #19:
    CB Jalen Tabor 6-2 195 of Edison-Friendship Public Center School, Washington D.C.

    *****

    1.9.2014 Commitment.

    **********

    Wow this is a huge get!!! 5 star corner with VH3 back there is going to be sick!!


    Jalen Tabor has had a whirlwind recruitment and it appears the end of that recruitment will finish with a bang as he switches his commitment up to theFlorida Gators.
    Following his high school teammate Jonathan Haden to Arizona was thing to do for Tabor just last week, but he let Scout.com know early Thursday morning that things changed

    "I'm going to Florida now," Tabor told me in a text message."I swear I will be there Monday. Tabor was set to enroll early at Arizona and instead will start classes at the University of Florida when he arrives and be able to participate in spring practice.

    With the losses of four cornerbacks including early NFL draft entrants Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson, the Gators had to have numbers and quality in the 2014 class. Tabor will get the chance to compete right away and his physical stature makes him a prime candidate to maybbe start opposite Vernon Hargreaves in the secondary.

    We will have more as soon as we can get it from this prized recruit.

    So that's 21 committed total which I believe leaves 4 scholarships left.

    Hopefully it doesn't, but I'd take Jalen over him anyway considering Adoree is a track first guy and Jalen's an EE. We need corner help now. I bet he starts game 1. Can't beat an uber talented 6'1 corner!

    I don't think it will or at least i hope it doesn't. I would let him know that he'll be used on offense if it gets crowded at corner.

    ESPN has him as a Florida commit so it looks official.

    This is a pretty big and pleasant surprise, that being said, I think this means that we lose JC Jackson which I'm okay with.
