Florida Football Recruiting: Wide Receiver Ryeshene Bronson Becomes No. 1 Commitment For 2014

That's Brent Pease on the left. This is our only picture of Brent Pease. You will see this picture a lot.

National Signing Day in 2014 is a little under 18 months from now, but with camps happening around the country, and especially in Gainesville, where Florida runs one of the nation's best, there are rising juniors who are looking to get in where they fit in already, well ahead of the curve in recruiting. One of them picked today to commit to the Gators: Ryeshene Bronson, a 2014 wide receiver from Fort Myers Dunbar High, committed to Florida this afternoon, as first reported by Rivals' Mark Wheeler, majordomo of Inside the Gators.

Bronson stands 6'3" and goes about 180 pounds, and had been picking up major offers of late, including one from Florida State just today. But y'all know I'm not the recruiting expert, so I reached out to SB Nation's Bud Elliott, and this is what he said:

Lanky kid, long strider, smooth. Dances too much but you can limit that by not having him catch little short stuff. Good top end speed. Good acceleration for his height. A lot of tall guys take a while to get up to speed.

Definitely someone who I want to see more.

That sounds good, and so does the trend of Florida going after bigger receivers. Bronson's cousin-ly ties to the Watkins family probably help, too, as does Ahmad Fulwood shouting him out. But I'm not going to get too wrapped up in a kid who may or may not be of legal driving age just yet.

Side note: I was leaving Publix under the-sky-is-crying rain as this happened. I can't imagine Bronson was swayed by this storm, even if God told him "to lock it in" but nuttier things have happened.
