The Florida Gators have built one of the deepest and most versatile passing attacks in college football by stockpiling pass-catchers. That effort appears likely to continue going forward, as Friday’s commitment from 2020 wide receiver Marc Britt of Miami Christian School adds another such player to a 2020 class that already had a couple.
Britt, a four-star prospect standing 6’2” and weighing in around 190 pounds, was once both a Miami commit and a Champagnat Catholic student. But those both changed — Britt dropped the ‘Canes in late 2018, and also bounced from Champagnat to Carol City to Miami Christian — and Britt’s call for the Gators came Friday on Twitter:
Britt’s Hudl highlight reel — not exactly lensed by James Laxton, we’ll say? — shows him as an elusive runner who is smooth with the ball and quick in tight spaces, though his competition is rather clearly not on his level.
But Britt is just one of three four-star wideouts now in Florida’s 2020 class, joining Jaquavion Fraziars and Leonard Manuel. And with Manuel seen as something of a risky take even before he decamped from Ocala’s Vanguard High to South Florida’s Stranahan Prep, it can’t hurt to have more depth at wide receiver in a class that will come in while at least four of Florida’s top targets are exiting.
Britt’s commitment is just the second by a rated prospect for Florida since the beginning of the football season, joining that of former South Carolina commit Issiah Walker, a four-star offensive tackle. But it’s a substantial one, pushing Florida’s 20-player crop of committed prospects to No. 10 nationally in the 247Sports Composite team rankings.
