Florida football recruiting: Corner Aaron Robinson makes 15 2016 commits for Gators

Florida grabs another sleeper from South Florida.

Florida's football program doesn't much care what else is going on on campus: It's just going to keep reeling in recruits.

The latest, this Friday night? South Florida cornerback Aaron Robinson, whose commitment was signaled by a Jim McElwain #ChompChomp tweet and first reported by Luke Stampini of 247Sports

Robinson, of Deerfield Beach — the same school that produced 2014 Florida signee Brandon Powell — reportedly received an offer from Florida earlier on Friday, during the first of several camps the Gators will run on campus this June. He's a lankier corner, at 6'0" or 6'1" and around 185 pounds, and a three-star player according to the 247Sports Composite, though it should probably be noted he's so little-known that 247Sports doesn't yet have his picture in its system.

But he can run, and tackle ... and play kick coverage?

I'll be honest: I know nothing about Robinson, and, clearly, he wasn't on anyone's radar outside of the program before the day. But that's been true of a few other evaluations and commitments under Jim McElwain, so it's also clear that this is part of Florida's new modus operandi on the recruiting trail.

Robinson brings Florida to 15 commitments in the 2016 class.
