Florida Football Recruiting: Quinton Powell Is Gators' Seventh 2013 Commitment

Florida's fantastic start to the 2013 recruiting cycle continues on this Saturday: During Florida's Junior Day, Daytona Beach Mainland linebacker Quinton Powell committed to Florida, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco.

Powell is a bit undersized for a linebacker, at 6'1" and 190 pounds, but Rivals rates him as a four-star player, and lists his offers from a slew of schools, including Florida State, Miami, Arkansas, Clemson, and Vanderbilt.

Moreover, Powell gives the Gators an inordinate amount of recruiting momentum very early in the 2013 cycle. Powell is the seventh verbal commitment to join Florida's Class of 2013, and is both the third linebacker, joining Daniel McMillian and James Hearns, and the third commitment on this Saturday, joining Kelvin Taylor and Rodney Adams.

Will Muschamp came of age as a recruiter under Mack Brown in a Texas system that was big on getting early commitments and securing classes long before Signing Day came around. He seems to be doing the exact same thing at Florida.
