Florida picked up its fourth and fifth commitments of the 2012 class this weekend when running back Mike Davis and linebacker Jeremi Powell gave their pledges to the Gators.
Davis, who attends Stephenson High School in Stone Mountain, Ga., made his commitment while attending Florida’s second Junior Day of the year.
“I felt at home,” Davis told the Gainesville Sun via text message.
“I love the coaching staff. They were real with me the whole time, and I love the feeling of being in The Swamp.”
Davis is the second running back to commit to Florida for 2011. Matt Jones from Seffner (Fla.) Armwood High School committed to the Gators last week.
Powell’s decision to commit seemed like an easy one after his trip to Gainesville.
“It was an unbelievable experience being up there,” Powell told the St. Petersburg Times. “I was up there with my mom and that’s all we could talk about on our way back.”
Powell, who attends Pinellas Park High School in Largo, Fla., plays on both offense and defense in high school. Linebacker appears to be his destination in college.
“I kind of had a feeling I would be playing on the defensive side of the ball in college,” Powell. “I don’t mind that at all. I’m just thrilled to know I’ll be playing for Florida.”
