Gators land WR Farrier

Orlando (Fla.) Lake Nona three-star wide receiver Deondre Farrier decided to end his recruitment Friday and committed to the Florida Gators.

“He just came in today and said, ‘Coach I think I want to commit to Florida,’” Farrier’s coach Anthony Paradiso said. “He was up there with his mom for a junior day. We basically called coach Muschamp and he committed.”

Farrier has been high on the Gators telling 247Sports earlier this week he thoroughly enjoyed that junior day visit in January.

“It was nice, Florida was real nice,” Farrier said Tuesday. “I just liked the whole atmosphere, my mom liked it, my coach likes it obviously. Florida was just real nice, I met all the players, I see myself there. All my family stays in this area around Orlando, so the place is close.”

As a junior, Farrier caught 55 passes for 909 yards and seven touchdowns. 247Sports currently rates Farrier a three-star prospect with an 85 grade. He is considered the nation’s No. 86 wide receiver and the No. 96 player in the state of Florida for the 2015 class.

Farrier is now Florida’s second prospect committed in the 2015 class, joining Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian safety Deontai Williams. Farrier also joins Lake Nona teammate Ryan Sousa in Gainesville after the three-star wide receiver signed with UF as part of the 2014 class.
