Florida's National Signing Day didn't go quite as well as some hoped, but the Gators put together one of the top classes in the nation by any measure. And now, one day after Signing Day, Florida has secured a commitment from Daniel McMillian, as first tweeted by Rivals site Inside the Gators' Bryan Holt, running their count for Class of 2013 commitments to three.
McMillian, a junior at Jacksonville First Coast, is 6'3" and 220 pounds, and though few recruiting services have awarded all of their stars and begun their rankings for the Class of 2013, he's likely to be either a four-star or five-star prospect when all is said and done, and SB Nation's Bud Elliott calls him one of the top linebackers in the Class of 2013.
Gator Country has McMillian's highlights video, and also this charming notification of commitment:
"I committed to Florida today," McMillian said in a text message. "If you ain’t a Gator then you Gator bait lol."
McMillian joins Adam Lane and Caleb Brantley as Florida commitments for the Class of 2013. With three presumptive four-star or better prospects from the state of Florida already in hand, it's clear that Will Muschamp is interested in continuing to do work on the recruiting trail.
And with a commitment from First Coast, long seen as a pipeline for Florida State and Alabama, it's possible that Muschamp is working on opening up new pipelines for the Gators.
