It had been almost a month since Florida's last football commitment. But, late Wednesday, a new one popped: Dual-threat quarterback and athlete Kadarius Toney committed to Florida, as first reported by Gator Country's Andrew Spivey.
Toney hails from Mobile, Alabama, a state that the Gators have made inroads into under Jim McElwain, nabbing three players out of the Yellowhammer State in their 2016 recruiting class. He's a three-star prospect per the 247Sports Composite, and doesn't quite fit Florida's plans as a quarterback, the position he's starred at in his school, so he's likely to wear the "athlete" tag that leaves him position-free until he enrolls at a school.
Toney has been lightly recruited, holding offers from Mississippi and South Carolina in addition to Florida, but that doesn't mean he's just a flier — not when he can do this sort of thing on the field.

Toney's full highlight film isn't as impressive as that reel-opening run, but what could be?
Toney is Florida's fifth commit in the 2017 recruiting class, and first from outside the state of Florida.
