Florida football recruiting: 2015 wide receiver Deondre Farrier commits to Gators

USA TODAY Sports

Florida began its Junior Day weekend before noon on Friday. (Slooooow down, some of us have to write these things up!)

Florida's having an important Junior Day weekend that will bring dozens of talented Class of 2015 players to Gainesville over the next couple of days, and it's a decent bet that the Gators will reel in at least a few commitments in the next 48 to 72 hours.

But Deondre Farrier got the party started a little earlier than expected on Friday, committing to Florida just before noon, as Rivals's Blake Alderman first reported.

Farrier is a three-star wide receiver, per the 247Sports Composite, and the No. 86 player in Florida, but he might be most interesting because of his connections to 2014 Florida signee Ryan Sousa, with whom he played at Lake Nona High. Farrier ran the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds at the 2014 Under Armour All-America Combine, per 247Sports, and received an offer from Florida the day after. 247Sports's Luke Stampini writes that Farrier called up Will Muschamp and committed Friday morning.

He's the Gators' second commit for the Class of 2015, joining Jacksonville Trinity Christian safety Deontai Williams, and is just the latest suggestion that Florida might be more inclined to take lesser-known wide receiver recruits based on measurables — Farrier has decent size at 6'0" and around 170 pounds, and a 4.48 is really, really good speed — more than stars.

Farrier's Hudl highlights are sadly not embeddable, and I'm going to doubt his listed measurements of 6'2" and 195 pounds on general principle, but they open with one hell of a catch-and-run.

Update: I'll defer to someone who's actually seen Farrier and actual measurements on his height — and speed.

In any case, Farrier's a high school junior. He might not be done growing, and he's certainly not a finished product as a player.
