The Gators 2013 recruiting class grew to 16 on May 14, when 3-star wide receiver/ cornerback Marqui Hawkins committed. The 6’2″, 190-pound Columbus, Georgia product will likely play wide receiver and joins Ahmad Fulwood and Rodney Adams, as the third such commitment.
On April 16, Hawkins told Rivals.com Blake Alderman, “”I talk to Florida the most and the defensive backs coach there, Travaris Robinson, he said that I’m a great football player and it’s hard to get a cornerback with arms as long as mine.” However, on May 14, Blake Alderman tweeted, “#Gator commit Marqui Hawkins was offered as a corner before but was told he could also play receiver. That was big in his decision.” Therefore, we will wait and see.
Hawkins held offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Ohio State, Southern California, among many others.
Gator Country’s Andrew Spivey initially broke the news.
