GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida picked up commitment No. 3 on the day when ESPNU 150 Watch List linebacker Quinton Powell (Daytona Beach, Fla./Mainland) committed to the Gators during junior day on Saturday.
Davide De Pas for ESPN.comQuinton Powell is one of four linebackers committed to Florida's class of 2013.
At 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, Powell is being recruited to play outside linebacker for the Gators. He chose the Gators after considering offers from Clemson, Miami and South Carolina.
"It was a good experience out here," Powell said. "I actually verbally committed to the Gators. It was a great experience. I saw a lot of different things I had questions for and it was good. I wanted to see how their academic process is, and I saw that it was good. They've got their act together with that, so I liked it."
Powell, who does not plan to take any other visits, said that he also liked the family atmosphere at UF.
"They feel like they're my brothers," he said. "They're already showing me love, and I like that. Looking forward to another family when I get here."
Powell joins James Hearns (Tallahassee, Fla./Lincoln) and Daniel McMillian (Jacksonville, Fla./First Coast), Florida's other linebacker commits.
