The Florida Gators picked up their second commitment in the last three days on Monday when an instate prospect picked the Gators.
Receiver Marcus Burke (6-3, 180, Jacksonville, FL. Trinity Christian) committed to Florida over Georgia on Monday.
“I am 100% committed to the University of Florida,” Burke tweeted.
Burke named the Gators his leader in March shortly after he visited Gainesville for junior day because of several reasons.
“Florida is my leader,” Burke said of his interest in Florida in March. “They’re everything I need in a school and I like everything about them.”
Receivers coach Billy Gonzales has made it clear to Burke that he’s needed in Gainesville and they’ve explained to him just how he would fit into Florida’s offense.
“He said he wants me as an outside receiver,” Burke said of the message from Gonzales. “He said he can use me in a lot of ways, pretty much saying we’re going to give you an opportunity to make plays and be a playmaker.”
Burke is the 21st commitment in the 2021 class and joins receivers Daejon Reynolds and Trevonte Rucker in the class at the position.
The receiver is also the 11th prospect in the state of Florida to join the 2021 class as Dan Mullen continues to want to take back control of the sunshine state in recruiting.
