Brandon Powell flips commitment from Miami to Florida


The Florida Gators are picking up some serious steam on the recruiting trail. On Thursday it was announced that five-star cornerback Jalen Tabor had flipped from Arizona to Florida, and now we learn that the Gators have filled the hole left by Dalvin Cook. Four-star running back Brandon Powell announced on Friday that he had changed his commitment from Miami to Florida.

Powell’s Deerfield Beach coach, Allen Jackson, informed Zach Abolverdi of The Gainesville Sun via text message that, “He is a Gator.”

The 5’9, 175-pound back always wanted to attend UF, but the coaching staff had yet to offer him a scholarship having already filled the slot with Cook. Cook’s de-commitment, however, opened up a position of need for Will Muschamp.

For a team looking for any kind of playmaker on offense, Powell is a big pickup. The Broward County Class 8A-7A-6A Player of the Year in 2013 is very quick, having been clocked at 4.44 in the 40-yard dash.

Powell is ranked as the No. 7 running back and No. 189 overall player, according to He is the Gators’ 21st commitment for the 2014 class.

Following is a highlight video from Powell’s junior season.
