Aidan Mizell commits to the Florida Gators over Tennessee

The Florida Gators picked up their second commit in as many days on Friday as they picked up a big in-state commitment.

Receiver Aidan Mizell (6-2, 180, Orlando, FL. Boone) committed to Florida over Tennessee and many others on Friday.

“For the next three to four years, I will be furthering my academic and athletic career at the University of Florida,” Mizell said.

Mizell has been on campus several times already, but it was during the Gators’ annual Orange and Blue game that the receiver was able to see some of Billy Napier’s offense.

“It was good, they threw the ball deep a little bit,” he said on Florida’s offense. “They had a bunch of screens, what I like to do. It looked like their game plan suits me well. It was just a sneak peek; they didn’t want to show much because everything is televised.”

During his official visit to Florida in June, Mizell was able to get to know all the coaches, not just receivers coach Keary Colbert who talks to on a daily basis.

“Coach Colbert, Coach Decker, Coach Blackshear, and even Coach Napier,” Mizell said on the coaches he spent the most time with. “It was definitely good not so much with Coach KC but Coach Napier and the other staff because me and Coach KC talk all the time, so it was getting to know the rest of the staff.”

Now that Mizell has committed to the Gators, he’s the 14th commit of the Class of 2023 and the 12th commit from the state of Florida.

Mizell joins receivers Eugene Wilson, Creed Whittemore, and Tyree Patterson as receivers in the class of 2023 as the Gators look to rebuild their depth at the position.
