Jim McElwain put out the recruiting bat signal Wednesday night and 247's Luke Stampini got the confirmation, running back Mark Thompson has verbally committed to Florida.

Thompson a 6-foot-2, 230 pounder out of Dodge City Community College in Kansas had offers from Iowa, Iowa State, Louisville and Arizona State. He will early enroll at Florida in January of next year.

For his size, Thompson displays impressive speed and balance. He will join a crowded UF backfield with Adam Lane, Jordan Scarlett, Jordan Cronkrite and possibly Kelvin Taylor who will be eligible to go to the NFL after this season. He's pretty excited about his decision.
