The Gators get another blue-chip QB, this time from the West Coast.

It appears Florida has its quarterback for the 2015 class.

Thomas Goldkamp and Luke Stampini of 247Sports report that California quarterback Sheriron Jones committed to the Gators on Sunday while on a three-day visit to Gainesville. Jones, a four-star prospect per the 247Sports Composite, chose Florida over Arizona, Nebraska, and Tennessee, among other schools.

Jones hails from Rancho Verde High School in Moreno Valley, the same school that produced former Gator Ronald Powell, and is a dual-threat quarterback with good size (he's around 6'2" and 200 pounds) and fine accuracy.

These highlights from his junior season show off plenty of touch, and a familiarity with a read-option spread offense much like the one Florida offensive coordinator Kurt Roper is expected to deploy with the Gators this fall.

With Jones in the fold, Florida is up to nine commitments for the 2015 class. The Gators are also likely done at quarterback in this cycle with Jones. That's not a bad thing: Will Grier, Treon Harris, Skyler Mornhinweg, and Jones would comprise a deep, deep pool of quarterbacks who could eventually take over fully or partially for Jeff Driskel.
