Fenley Graham commits to the Florida Gators

The Florida Gators picked up a big commitment on Monday afternoon when an instate prospect committed to Florida.

Athlete Fenley Graham (5-9, 171, Lakeland, FL. High) committed to the Gators on Monday after he visited the Gators just two weeks ago.

“I will be committing to the University of Florida,” Graham tweeted.

Graham who plays both sides of the ball in high school says the Gators have talked to him about why they like the athlete.

“They like my playmaking skills and what I can do with the ball,” Graham said earlier this spring. “I want to play corner and special teams in college.”

Defensive backs coach Torrian Gray played a big part in Graham’s decision to commit to the Gators.

“I like Coach Gray, he’s a great coach,” he said of Gray. “I actually grew up in the same area as he did and I know a lot of his family and I have heard a lot about him.”

Graham committed to the Gators over offers from Miami, Nebraska and Kentucky among others.

The Lakeland product who is expected to play on defense is the second defensive back commitment in the class of 2020 joining Avery Helm in the Gators secondary.

Graham is the 17th commitment in the class of 2020 and marks the 12th commitment that is from the state of Florida.
