Florida football recruiting: 2014 CB/WR J.C. Jackson commits to Gators

Bud Elliott / SB Nation Recruiting

At Florida's first summer camp of the year, Immokalee corner/wideout J.C. Jackson completed his flip from Florida State.

With the commitment of Immokalee cornerback/wide receiver J.C. Jackson on Saturday, as reported by The Gainesville Sun's Zach Abolverdi, among others, added another potential member of the No-Fly Zone to the Florida recruiting class of 2014 on Saturday.

Jackson had been expected to end up with the Gators for quite some time, with 247Sports' Luke Stampini projecting Jackson would flip to Florida from Florida State back in April. Jackson made his decommitment from Florida State earlier this week, and, while taking in Florida's camp on Saturday, committed to the Gators.

Jackson was committed to Florida State as a wide receiver, but is apparently being told he can play corner at Florida — either way, he possesses the skills and speed to make plays on the outside, even if his height (listed at 5'10") might leave a bit to be desired. And he's got ball skills, too: Check out this catch.

There might, understandably, be worries about Jackson's commitment, given the recency and length (over a year) of his commitment to Florida State, but Jackson told Stampini ($) "I'm going to stay committed." There's not a lot more you really need to hear from a prospect.

Jackson joins Cross City corner Duke Dawson among Florida's secondary commits for the class of 2014, and brings the Gators' current crop of commits to nine. Florida has signed an impressive 12 secondary recruits since Will Muschamp, who was a safety at Georgia and serves as the Gators' de facto safeties coach, arrived in 2011.
