Florida picked up a commitment from four-star wide receiver Rodney Adams, according to ESPN’s Derek Tyson.
Adams, the Gators' second verbal of the day, committed to Will Muschamp at Florida’s Junior Day, pushing UF’s number of 2013 commitments to six.
Adams plays high school ball for Lakewood in St. Petersburg, Fla., the same school where current Gator Dante Fowler played. While Fowler signing with UF made Adams more comfortable with his decision, he told ESPN’s Derek Tyson that he had decided to commit to Florida before Fowler made the switch.
At 6’1", 170 pounds, Adams uses his speed to create space and make plays down field. In an interview with ESPN, Adams said offensive coordinator Brent Pease "told me I would be a deep threat down field. He said they want to use my speed to get down the field and create plays. He said I will have a big role in the offense."
Adams’ commitment gives Florida three offensive players in the Class of 2013 and its first wide receiver. He checks in at No. 234 in the Rivals250.
