Four-star WR Sousa flips from FSU to UF
By Derek Tyson
Despite not having an offensive coordinator the Florida Gators were able to get four-star wide receiver Ryan Sousa (Orlando, Fla./Lake Nona) to flip his commitment from Florida State to the Gators on Monday night. Sousa’s commitment was first reported by 247sports.
Sousa camped at both schools over the summer but was only offered a scholarship by FSU, which he quickly jumped on and committed to the Noles in June.
After having a strong senior season, Florida decided to offer the 6-foot, 177-pound wideout a scholarship. Sousa took an official visit this weekend and decided to go ahead and flip his commitment.
After struggling mightily in the passing game this year, the Gators have been looking to add playmakers on offense. Sousa, who totaled 4,107 receiving yards and 53 receiving touchdowns on 246 receptions in his high school career, joins four-star wide receiver Ermon Lane (Homestead, Fla./Homestead) as Florida commitments.
For Florida, the Gators now have 16 commitments, including nine ranked in the ESPN 300. Twelve of Florida’s commitments are ranked four-stars or higher.
Florida State, meanwhile, has 23 commitments including nine ranked in the ESPN 300.
