It wasn't exactly the best-kept secret on the recruiting trail, but ESPN 150 Watch List running back Matt Jones (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) confirmed earlier reports by showing up in Florida Gators garb for his official announcement Wednesday night.

"I am a Gator for life," said the 6-3, 215-pound running back.

Reportedly Jones committed to the Gators during his visit for Florida's junior day but wanted to discuss it with his coach, Sean Callahan, before going official. However, word leaked out pretty early, something that Jones said was due to his excitement over his decision.
