GAINESVILLE — The son of a former Gator football star and a local high school standout are among four players who orally committed to Florida on Saturday as part of the 2013 football class.
WR Kelvin Taylor, son of former Florida and NFL RB Fred Taylor, chose the Gators over Alabama. On his Twitter account he confirmed his decision and said "Can't wait to get on that field."
Also committing was St. Petersburg Lakewood WR Rodney Adams, who was also being recruited by FSU and Oklahoma. If his commitment holds, he will join former teammate Dante Fowler, Jr., who recently signed as part of the Gators' 2012 class. Last season, Fowler had more than 800 yards on 25 receptions.
Taylor is the state's all-time leading rusher with 9,698 yards, surpassing former Gator Emmitt Smith.
Daytona Beach Mainland LB Quinton Powel and Jacksonville Trinity Christian DB Nick Washington also chose the Gators. Oral commitments are nonbinding until signing day next year.
