GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Jerry Jeudy lived up to his All-American billing at Florida’s Friday Night Lights.
The 4-star wide receiver from Deerfield Beach, Fla., was the top performer at his position during the one-on-one drills in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

On the final play of the camp, he put a nasty juke move on Miami cornerback commit Akeem Dent and caught a touchdown pass from Gators quarterback commit Jake Allen.
“That move,” Jeudy said when asked for the highlight of his trip. “It felt good. I just did what I had to do.”
Jeudy has developed a reputation for breaking ankles with his route running.
“I’ve always had footwork since I stepped in high school,” said Jeudy, who named Alabama and Florida as his top 2 schools.
Jeudy is ranked the No. 6 wide receiver and No. 35 overall prospect in the 247Sports composite.
The Under Armour All-American enjoyed camping at UF in front of the Gators coaches and players.
“It was great. Very crunk, live,” Jeudy said. “It was a good feeling. It’s always good to get better, and that’s why I came today.”
“I just liked coming back on campus, talking to the coaches for a little bit and get a good workout in.”
The staff’s message to him was simple.
“Make something happen at The Swamp,” Jeudy said.
