Florida's recruiting bounty on this Junior Day Saturday is growing, and rapidly approaching the realm of an embarrassment of riches. The fourth class of 2013 prospect to commit to the Gators on Saturday was safety Nick Washington, as first reported by ESPN's Derek Tyson.

Of the two, Washington, from Trinity Christian in Jacksonville, is the bigger pick-up: He's going to be a four- or five-star prospect (ESPN has him on the ESPNU 150 Watch List, Rivals with four stars) and is versatile enough to play both safety and corner if necessary. He's also the half-brother of Devin Washington, a potentially excellent 2013 prospect in his own right.

Washington could add to what might be a beyond formidable secondary in the fall of 2013. Consider this: Florida will have Marcus Roberson, Marcus Maye, De'Ante Saunders, and Brian Poole then, and could very well have Matt Elam, 2013 stud Marcell Harris, Washington, and a couple more players in Will Muschamp's defensive backfield. Tracy Howard who?
