With this being the last season that Jeff Driskel will be on campus, the Florida Gators will have a lot of questions going forward in regards to the quarterback position. They got some help with that on Sunday by landing a commitment from the no. 7 dual-threat signal-caller in the nation, Sheriron Jones.

Jones, out of Moreno Valley, Ca., is the seventh-ranked quarterback in the 2015 according to the 247 Sports composite rankings. He’s also the 28th rated player in the state of California.
Jones had offers from some of the best schools in the country such as the Tennessee Volunteers, Colorado Buffaloes, Arizona Wildcats and Arizona State Sun Devils, however he ultimately spurned those on Sunday to commit to Gainesville, head coach Will Muschamp and his primary recruiter, offensive coordinator Kurt Roper.
Jones’ commitment is the perfect example of the impact that Roper wants to have on this program ahead. This young man possesses all the versatile attributes that should translate well to Roper’s fast-paced scheme as the coach tries to change the perception of the program’s offense, the unit that has seen the most scrutiny in recent years.
The commitment of Jones on Sunday now brings the Gators up to nine commitments in the 2015 class and Jones is the first at the quarterback position.
