ESPNU 150 Watch List LB to UF 

February, 18, 2012
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.

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."
