Florida picked up a commitment from wide receiver Marqui Hawkins (Columbus, Ga.) Monday night, according to Gator Country's Andrew Spivey, bringing the Gators' 2013 class to 16 members.

Hawkins has some size at 6'2", 190, and has offers from the likes of Auburn, Clemson (who was his second choice), Georgia, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Southern Cal and Tennessee.

Rivals rates Hawkins as a three-star receiver and is ranked No. 42 at his position nationally.

Hawkins was offered as a corner but will be given the opportunity to play receiver, according to Rivals' Blake Alderman.

Regardless of which position Hawkins plays, it's a surprising pick-up for Will Muschamp. At both receiver and defensive back, there are players believed to be higher on the board still available.
