Three-star QB Deiondre Porter commits to Florida Gators


The Florida Gators received a commitment from three-star quarterback Deiondre Porter on Monday evening.

Porter, a three-star quarterback from Jefferson High School in Tampa, Florida, announced his decision on Bright House Sports Network Monday evening.

“Man, it was wild,” Porter, a former USF commit, said of Muschamp’s phone call via Ryan Bass of Bright House Sports Network. “You watch them on TV all the time and I think everybody know, when you say the University of Florida, they are like ‘[wow] you’re going there’? It was an honor for the head coach, not a position coach, but the head coach to call me and offer me a full ride. It was an honor for me and I’m just glad to have the opportunity to go play football there.”

Porter is one of several offensive recruits who are now on the Gators’ radar after firing offensive coordinator Brent Pease and replacing him with former Duke Blue Devils’ offensive coordinator Kurt Roper.

According to 24/7 Sports composite rankings, he is 1,357th best player in the class of 2014 and the 191st best player in the state of Florida.

Porter is the second quarterback to commit to Florida. Four-star Will Grier is already enrolled.
