Less than 24 hours after his official visit to Florida, Jaelin Humphries has put an end to his recruitment.
The 4-star defensive tackle from Mountain View High School (Lawrenceville, Ga.) announced his commitment to first-year coach Dan Mullen and the Gators on Tuesday morning, revealing the decision with Chad Simmons of Rivals.com.
The 6-foot, 303-pound lineman took his first official visit to Florida over the weekend, arriving with his mother on Saturday and leaving campus Monday morning.
Humphries told Simmons that he committed in Mullen’s office on Sunday following a meeting with defensive coordinator Todd Grantham and defensive line coach Sal Sunseri.
“The coaches made me feel very comfortable, I spent a lot of time with players over the weekend and it all fell right into place with Florida,” Humphries said.
Humphries visited Gainesville during spring ball and named Florida in his top 10 on May 19, along with Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Mississippi State, Nebraska, South Carolina and Tennessee.
The addition of Humphries gives the Gators nine members in their 2019 class. He was scheduled to take his second official visit to LSU this weekend, but that trip now appears to be off.
“I am fully shutting my recruitment down,” Humphries told Simmons. “The University of Florida is my school. That is where I want to go.”
