    Florida landed a commitment from Charlotte (N.C.) Providence Day School 2020 defensive end Kedrick Bingley-Jones on Tuesday, days after visiting the Gators for Friday Night Live. The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Bingley-Jones picked Florida over offers from Florida State, Georgia, Louisville, Maryland, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M and others.


    "I felt like it’s the best fit for me," Bingley-Jones told 247Sports' Anna Hickey on why Florida was his pick. "I’m the most comfortable there of any school I’ve visited. Right when I stepped foot on campus, they showed me nothing but love. They also have my preferred major (dentistry) that can lead me to becoming an orthodontist.”

    The 247Sports Composite, an industry generated average, currently ranks Bingley-Jones as the nation’s No. 259 overall prospect and the No. 14 strong-side defensive end in the 2020 recruiting class.

    This kid is going to be massive by the time he gets here. 6'4" 260 and only a junior?! Wait till Savage gets ahold of him and he starts getting on the nutrition program! Good pickup long way from 2020 but we have a pretty good start for that class.

    Prototype frame for a 3-4 DL as a HS junior. Another step forward.

    He says his recruitment is still open? So is he still committed?

    Nobody teaches these kids what the term commitment means apparently. IMO if you commit to a school, then keep your word. I guess people don't think it's a big deal and maybe i'm old fashioned.

    I hope he sticks with you guys, but who knows.. Nothing is guaranteed until that dotted line is signed.

    Truth be known players likely got tired of the games staffs played with them... More likely, HS coaches got tired of it and the tide shifted to players cutting the best deals for themselves.

    And by "deal" I do not necessarily mean $$$.

    It's probably his way of saying: I don't want hundreds of desperate contacts over the next week encouraging me to keep my options open, which was what I intended to do anyhow when committing.

    He Then followed up with a 110% committed post, so there's that! Nothing to worry about guys, he followed it up with an extra 10% guarantee for good measure. :D
