Tre’Vez Johnson commits to the Florida Gators

The Florida Gators picked up their 15th commitment on Saturday from a prospect that took an unofficial visit to Gainesville on Saturday.

Defensive back Tre’Vez Johnson (5-11, 175, Jacksonville, FL. Bartram Trail) committed to the Gators over offers from North Carolina and Virginia Tech among others.

“I’m committing to the University of Florida,” Johnson tweeted.

Johnson picked up an offer from the Gators last weekend after he camp with Florida and it was a big offer for the defensive back.

“I’m very excited about the offer, it was my first SEC offer,” Johnson said of the offer. “I like that Florida is closer to home.”

The Gators like Johnson’s ability to move all around the defensive backfield, plus the speed he possesses.

“They like my speed and that I can come down and tackle,” he said. “They say I can play safety, nickel and corner because I’m a versatile guy.”

Johnson is now the third defensive back commit in the 2020 class joining Avery Helm and safety Rashad Torrence as the Gators are looking to reload the depth in the secondary.

Out of the 15 commitments the Gators have in the class, 10 of them hail from the sunshine state as Dan Mullen has emphasized wanting to get back to recruiting the state of Florida hard.
