“It just felt right” for Dunmore to join the Florida Gators recruiting class

The Florida Gators recruiting class picked up its fourth commitment of the weekend and second on Saturday for the class of 2019.

2019 receiver John Dunmore (6-3, 170, Fort Lauderdale, FL. American Heritage Delray) committed to the Gators on Saturday morning after meeting with head coach Jim McElwain.

“It just felt right,” Dunmore said. “After talking it over with my family, I would like to announce that I’ve officially committed to the University of Florida.”

After Friday night’s spring game, the 2019 receiver explained why Florida was the school he liked.

“I’ve seen the things I needed to see off-the-field,” Dunmore said. “Home, academic-wise, it’s close to home. I know my family loves it, I love it. I know I can come here and compete and I’m going to start.”

Running backs coach JaJuan Seider is the main recruiter for Dunmore and has been recruiting him since Seider coached at West Virginia and the two have a great relationship.

“Same thing here, he’s been on me,” Dunmore said of Seider. “He’s a good coach, he treats me like I’m family.”

After talking it over with his family, Dunmore decided that everything Florida had to offer was too much to pass up as he explains the Gators have more than just football.

“Florida just felt like home, I feel comfortable here,” he said. “Not only for football but academic wise too. Football is not going to last forever, so I know going here for academics it will take me farther in life.”

Dunmore joins athletes Tyrique Stevenson and Jashon Watkins, receiver Frank Ladson, defensive tackle Jaquaze Sorrels and defensive Jaleel McRae as members of the class of 2019.


INSIDERS TAKE: Dunmore is a big physical receiver who really goes up and gets the ball and that’s something Florida is looking to add. Dunmore is close with receiver Josh Hammond and defensive back signee Marco Wilson.
