Receiver Izaiah Williams commits to the Florida Gators

The Florida Gators received good news on Friday from one of their top instate targets in the Class of 2024 when he committed to the Gators.

Receiver Izaiah Williams (6-0, 172, Tampa, FL. Carrollwood Day) committed to the Gators over offers from Alabama, Arkansas, and several others from his 27 scholarship offers.

“Committed,” Williams tweeted on Friday.

Williams has visited Florida twice since picking up an offer from the Gators over the winter and he was last on campus for the Gators spring game.

The Tampa native is one of the fastest guys in the state of Florida this year and has ran a 4.46 40-yard dash that was lasered time and he also has a broad jump of 10-foot-1.

While football is big for Williams, the receiver also runs track, and he posted a 10.94 in the 100-meter dash as a junior.

Williams only played in five games last year but over the last two seasons, he has caught 40 passes for 670 yards and six touchdowns.

Now that Williams has committed, he’s the first receiver to commit as quarterback commit DJ Lagway has been working several guys. Lagway and Williams also join running back commits Chauncey Bowens and Kahnen Daniels as skill players in the class.
