Florida picked up its second commitment in as many days as offensive lineman Tyler Jordan (6-5, 270, Jacksonville, FL Bishop Kenny) committed to the Gators on junior day.
“I committed to Florida today because I felt like I fit in at Florida,” Jordan said. “I felt like I belonged at Florida and that it was a great place for me to play at for years to come. The feeling of the atmosphere at Florida is something that I haven’t felt anywhere else.”
This was Jordan’s second visit to UF this week and after talking with the coaches he knew he wanted to make a commitment.
“I think on Monday was the first time I felt that I wanted to commit,” Jordan said. “Then I came back today and I had the same feeling so I decided to commit.”
Projected as a center or guard by the Florida coaching staff, Jordan used the second visit to grow more comfortable with Florida and with the plans the coaching staff has for him.
“I talked to Coach (Mike) Summers, coach (Kurt) Roper and to Coach (Will) Muschamp today,” Jordan said. “Coach Summers was saying he was really excited and he can’t wait to get to work with me and that he sees me at center.”
Now that Jordan has committed he has cancelled his previous plans to visit schools this month but he still make take visits in the future.
“I have no more visits planned,” Jordan said. “I’m going to talk to my parents about whether or not I will take anymore visits or not in the future.”
The Jacksonville prep star joins another Jacksonville player in Deontai Williams of Trinity Christian and Orlando receiver Deondre Farrier as commitments in the Class of 2015.
Jordan also joins former high school teammate Ahmad Fulwood at Florida.
