Florida Gators Land Two Commits Following Spring Game


Three-star wide receiver Corey Gammage committed to Florida on Saturday night, one day after 3-star tight end Jalen Goss committed to the Gators following the Orange and Blue Debut. 


On Friday night, following the Gators’ annual Orange and Blue Debut, Jim McElwain’s staff managed to add a commitment from 3-star tight end Jalen Goss, from Valdosta, Georgia.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound prospect released a statement regarding his pledge to Florida.

“I would like to announce that I’ve officially committed to the University of Florida. I’d like to thank all of the schools that gave me an opportunity to play football on the next level. I’d also like to thank God, my family, and all the coaches who helped me get to this point in my life.”

The Gators stood out from Goss’ other suitors. He holds additional offers from Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, Oregon, TCU, West Virginia and others.

However, McElwain’s staff didn’t stop there.

A day later, 3-star wide receiver Corey Gammage committed to Florida, bringing its total to five commits.

Gammage, from Delray Beach, Florida, is the No. 85 wide receiver in the country. He chose the Gators while holding offers from Auburn, Kentucky, Miami, Virginia Tech and West Virginia, among others.

The 6-foot-3, 175-pound pass catcher also released a statement regarding his own commitment.

“First I would like to start off by thanking the almighty man up above for my family, the opportunities he’s blessed me with, and the support that comes from the great high school and community I’m involved in. I’ve enjoyed the recruiting process. It kept me up and made every day more exciting to see what tomorrow has to bring. I would also like to thank the universities that actually took the time to evaluate me and offer me an opportunity to join their family and compete at the next level. But with the relentless help of my family, high school and community, I would like to proudly announce that I will continue my education and God-given ability at the University of Florida.”

Prior to this past weekend, the Gators were outside the top 30 of the 2018 recruiting class rankings and looking in. Now, Florida finds itself at No. 23 nationally and at No. 5 among SEC teams. It trails No. 4 LSU, No. 11 Texas A&M, No. 15 Alabama and No. 20 Auburn.
