Defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard from Crest High School in Shelby, N.C., committed to Florida during the U.S. Army Bowl on Saturday.
Bullard, who chose Florida over South Carolina and Clemson, is considered a five-star prospect and the 20th-best player in the nation by Rivals.com.
Florida’s class ranking for 2012 made a big move after receiving Bullard’s commitment. Florida’s class is ranked third nationally by Rivals, fourth by Scout.com and fifth by 247Sports.com.
And that position in the standings could improve, according to Scout recruiting analyst Andrew Bone.
“We mentioned UF as a school who can possibly challenge for No. 1 come signing day,” Bone wrote on Twitter.
That’s because Florida remains in contention for several top prospects, including wide receiver Nelson Agholor, defensive end Darius Hamilton, athlete Josh Harvey-Clemons and offensive lineman Avery Young.
Alabama continues to set the pace. The Crimson Tide’s class is currently ranked No. 1 by Rivals, Scout and 247Sports.
