The Florida Gators may have lost Joker Phillips’ photoshops with his resignation, but that hasn’t stopped the university from getting creative on the recruiting trail.
The coaching staff sent elite 2015 recruit CeCe Jefferson this spectacular work featuring him on the cover of Forbes. Rather than touting UF’s football program, the cover shines a light on the education Jefferson will receive by attending the University of Florida – widely regarded as one of the best public institutions in the country.
Considering the majority of schools the Gators are competing against for his talents (Alabama, Auburn, FSU, etc.), educating Jefferson on UF’s academic credentials is a smart play. While each program can roll out significant accomplishments on the gridiron, UF sets itself apart in the classroom.

Jefferson is considered to be a Florida lean. He’s the No. 1 strong-side defensive end, No. 4 overall player in the nation, and No. 2 player in the state of Florida, according to 247 Sports composite.
*UPDATE* 2015 center Tyler Jordan, who is a Gators commit, showed off his Forbes cover as well.
