Florida’s coaching staff worked hard to flip four-star wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland. The group was extremely happy when it found out its diligence paid off.
Florida’s coaches celebrated as if they had just scored an 80-yard touchdown after learning that Cleveland indeed flipped his commitment from Houston to Florida on Wednesday. A raucous reaction ensued.

Cleveland’s skills should get Gators fans celebrating as well. Cleveland is rated as the No. 33 player in the country, the second-best wideout in the country and the third-best player out of the state of Texas, according to 247Sports.com.
Cleveland has signed his letter of intent and will be taking his talents to Gainesville, Fla. in 2016. Jim McElwain and his staff are clearly excited to start coaching their new wide receiver.
