After losing four commitments and gaining just one over the last 10 days on the recruiting trail, Florida got back on the positive side of the ledger on Tuesday, picking up a commitment from Jacksonville wide receiver Kalif Jackson. Jackson, who plays for Fletcher High in Jacksonsville, is a three-star wide receiver per the 247Sports Composite, but is listed at 6'5" and 200 pounds. That puts him closer to the body type of Florida's two tight ends in the 2014 recruiting class — DeAndre Goolsby and C'yontai Lewis — and the burly Moral Stephens, Jr. than it does to the more diminutive frames of 2014 signees Ryan Sousa and C.J. Worton. And his junior year highlights make him look like a matchup problem, a potential red zone threat, and the kind of player who might fit perfectly in Kurt Roper's offense at tight end or B-back.
