    Three-star cornerback Divaad Wilson committed to Florida on Friday night, giving the Gators their second commit in the 2018 recruiting class. 


    On Thursday, Jim McElwain added to his coaching staff when he hired running backs coach JaJuan Seider away from West Virginia.

    One day later, the Gators added to their 2018 recruiting class.

    Miami native Divaad Wilson, a cornerback out of Miami Northwestern High School, committed to Florida on Friday night. The Gators now have two commits in their 2018 recruiting class, as Wilson joins 3-star athlete Jalynn Williams, who committed to Florida on Jan. 13.

    Wilson, a 3-star recruit, landed a scholarship offer from the Gators on Thursday and needed little time to decide Gainesville is where he wants to be for his collegiate football career.

    The 6-foot, 185-pound prospect released a statement regarding his decision to give Florida his pledge.

    “First, [I’m] giving thanks to God for all my blessings. After discussing it with my family, I’ve decided to commit to the University of Florida. Go Gators. Defensive Backs University.”

    When Wilson spoke with Campus Insiders about his offer and commitment to Florida, he revealed how his family is filled with Gator fans, and he, too, was a fan of Florida growing up.

    “I was miles past happy,” he said while describing what it felt like when he secured the scholarship offer.

    Randy Shannon, who was promoted to full-time defensive coordinator for the Gators after Geoff Collins left to become the head coach at Temple, is Wilson’s main recruiter.

    With National Signing Day for the 2017 cycle having wrapped up on Wednesday, Shannon isn’t wasting any time in dipping into South Florida for the 2018 class
