The Gators found another four-star recruit Wednesday night, flipping linebacker Jaden Robinson from SC.
Robinson focused on the Gamecocks on the Fourth of July, but Florida was just engaging in the race at that time and continued to pursue the Columbia High (Lake City, Florida) recruit. Eventually, Billy Napiers staff convinced him to flip. Inside linebackers coach Jay Bateman has been the lead recruiter for Florida, and outside linebacker coach Mike Peterson can be in the mix, in accordance with 247Sports. Peterson has ties to Robinson from his time recruiting him for SC.
Florida lacked an internal linebacker in the class, and Robinson fills that hole. In previous visits, coaches have organized where he’d play, and the Gators like him inside. He took a set of visits to the Swamp in late July and which could have made the difference for Robinson.
