Height: 6-0

Weight: 192

Position: receiver

Rivals Ranking: 4-star

Recruited by:  Billy Gonzales

Enrollment date: June of 2018

Notable: The Under Armour All-American was once committed to Florida before backing off of the pledge but the Gators remained one of his top choices throughout the process. Once Dan Mullen and Billy Gonzales arrived at Florida they made him a priority and that helped seal the deal for the Gators.

Quotable: “If you was to come here I promise you I’ll give you every resource to help you do what you want to do in life,” Copeland said on Mullen’s message to him. “He said you will have all the support you need to get there from not just me but the staff and the rest of the Gator Nation family.”
