Ja'Juan Story now has his pick of Florida's big three universities.

The Gators offered Story on Monday with assistant Dan McCarney telling Story by phone Florida wants him. Last week, Story picked up a Miami offer and Florida State was one of the first to come to Story with a scholarship.

USF, UCF and FIU have also offered the 6-foot-4, 185-pounder.

"When I saw him he had a big smile on his face," Nature Coast coach Mark Nash said. "That's typical with Ja'Juan."

Story is coming off a tremendous weekend where he ran a 4.37 in the 40-yard dash at the ESS Combine at Jefferson on Saturday. He then competed in the Nike combine in Gainesville on Sunday.

"He's just a freak," Nash said. "I don't know another way to describe him."

Story primarily played receiver and defensive back in 2009, also sharing time at quarterback. He had 13 receptions for 423 yards (32.5 yards per catch) and three touchdowns. At quarterback, he had 27 carries for 265 yards and two touchdowns (just two starts as a quarterback). Defensively he had 22 tackles and one sack.
