Recruiting: Marcus Maye Commits To Florida, Makes 15 2012 Commitments For Will Muschamp

According to 24/7 Sports' Justin Wells, Melbourne Holy Trinity safety Marcus Maye has committed to Florida during an on-campus visit. Maye's commitment is Florida's second in the past week, and the 15th overall for the Class of 2012. Will Muschamp is doing work.

Maye is rated as a four-star prospect by Rivals, and is their seventh-ranked safety in the Class of 2012. ESPN's Corey Long wrote a feature on Maye in April, citing his excellence as a standout player for his small high school as a reason to like him rather than knock him. Maye has also starred at a number of camps this summer, and took part in Nike's "The Opening" in Oregon this month.

If he makes it to Gainesville, Maye should bolster a secondary that is rife with talented young players. Personally, since I'm from Brevard County — home to Maye, and a number of other Gators greats, like Cris Collinsworth, Mike Degory, and Reggie Nelson — I hope Maye's commitment sticks, and I hope he makes and impact like his Space Coast predecessors.
