The University of Florida continued its impressive run on the recruiting front on Friday. Orlando-native Aidan Mizell committed to the Gators and took his announcement very literally.
Mizell, a four-star receiver in the Class of 2023, is the No. 13-ranked player at his position and has offers from 39 D-I programs, including Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Baylor, Louisville, Indiana, Michigan and Oklahoma, among others.
Mizell is one of the fastest players in the country. He is the son of a former All-American sprinter and has run as fast as 10.65 in the 100-meter dash and 46.99 in the 400-meter dash. He will likely run for Florida during the football offseason with those times.
Although he was long considered a UF-lean, Mizell made his commitment official in front of friends and family on Friday. And he did so in style.
Mizell was down to a final three of Florida, Alabama and Tennessee. To announce his decision, Mizell emerged from behind a backdrop set up in his high school gym.
It was was immediately clear which school he chose, not only because Mizell was wearing a Gators hat and t-shirt, but because he was holding live alligators. No, seriously.
Mizell announced his commitment to Florida by walking out with two live gators in his hands. They were both small and they both had their mouths taped shut so that they could not go rogue and bite anyone, but he had two live gators in his hands.

There have been a lot of crazy commitments over the years, but Mizell’s has to be near the top.
