The Florida Gators picked up their 20th commitment for the Class of 2020 just a day ahead of the Gators biggest game of the 2019 season.
Athlete Marc Britt (6-2, 190, Miami, FL. Miami Christian School) committed to Florida over Penn State on Friday.
“I will be committing to the University of Florida,” Britt tweeted.
Britt who plays both receiver and defensive back in high school says the Gators see him playing mainly one side of the ball in college.
“He says safety and some time wide receiver,” Britt said on where the Gators see him playing. “I think safety will be fun, I would have no problem playing it and they have a big need at safety.”
While Britt hasn’t been in the Swamp this fall, the athlete has watched the Gators defense closely this year and he thinks he fits into what Todd Grantham likes to do on defense.
“I think the defense is doing great,” he said on his thoughts on Florida’s defense. “They play hard and I think I would be a good fit for what they do.”
Grantham has been recruiting Britt hard but it’s quarterbacks coach and area recruiter Brian Johnson who has led the charge the athlete.
“I talk to Coach Brian [Johnson] the most,” he said on the coach he talks to from Florida. “He’s always saying that he likes the way I play on both sides of the ball and that he wants me.”
Britt joins safeties Tre’vez Johnson and Rashad Torrence as safeties in the 2020 class and the athlete is the 14th commitment from the state of Florida for the Gators.
