Sam McCall commits to the Florida Gators over Alabama and FSU

The Florida Gators picked up their second commitment of the Class of 2022 on Wednesday from an in-state prospect.

Athlete Sam McCall (6-2, 180, Lakeland, FL. Lake Gibson) committed to Florida over Alabama and Florida State on Wednesday on his birthday.

“At this time, I will be committing to the University of Florida,” McCall said.

McCall says he talks to defensive back coach Torrian Gray a lot as the Gators want the athlete to play defense in college.

“He says that at 6-2, or 6-3 that I can play all over the field,” McCall said on where Gray wants him to play. “He says I will play free safety but when they’re going against a top receiver then I will match up with him. Coach [Dan] Mullen and Coach [Billy] Gonzales say I can play receiver and some wildcat quarterback from time to time too.”

The athlete has several big offers after him but McCall says one thing set the Gators apart from others.

“I like how they produce defensive backs that stay in the league a long time instead of just two or three years,” he said on what he likes about Florida. “I like the academics and what they can do for me if I were to go there.”

McCall joins receiver Syveion Ellis as the lone members of the Class of 2022 class for the Gators but Florida sits in a good spot for several other instate targets in the class.
