Four-star receiver Jacob Copeland was committed to Florida, but re-opened his recruitment after Jim McElwain was fired in the middle of the season. However, it would appear the Gators are beginning to warm back up to Copeland as he dropped this little tidbit about his in-home visit with Florida assistant coach Billy Gonzales.
While that doesn’t guarantee Florida anything, it does bode well for the new staff trying to put together a solid recruiting class for when the February signing day comes around. Gonzales coached the likes of Percy Harvin and Bubba Caldwell during his first stint in Gainesville so he knows a thing or two about good receivers and how to get them to the next level.
the 6-foot, 192-pound Copeland is ranked as the No. 5 receiver in the class of 2018 and the No. 13 recruit in the state of Florida according to ESPN.
