Cornerback Divaad Wilson committed to Florida last night, becoming the second commitment in the Gators’ 2018 class. He announced his commitment on Twitter - which yes, does have his name misspelled in one of the graphics used.

The 6’0” 185 pound cornerback is a three-star player per the 247Sports Composite rankings, and is also ranked as the No. 43 player at his position in the nation. Wilson also sits inside the nation’s top 500 prospects per that ranking, coming in at No. 433.
According to multiple outlets, Wilson was waiting on an offer from Florida, and committed shortly after he received it. Wilson played at Miami Monsignor Pace last year but has transferred to Miami Northwestern and will play his senior season at that school, which is expected to contend for a state championship.
Wilson also holds offers from Louisville, Rutgers, Syracuse, UCF, USF, and Vanderbilt. You can check out his junior season highlights below:
There is over a year left until National Signing Day for the 2018 class. The Gators presently have two commitments pledged to join Florida in that year’s group. Wilson joins WR Jalynn Williams, the other current member of Florida’s 2018 recruiting class.
