GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida’s recruiting momentum continued Sunday with another verbal commitment for the Gators.

Adarius Lemons, a 4-star running back from Clearwater, Fla., flipped from North Carolina to UF. He attended Friday Night Lights and told SEC Country the Gators were pushing for his No. 1 spot.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound prospect is ranked the No. 1 running back in the state of Florida, according to the 247Sports Composite.

Florida now has 12 members in its 2017 class following the additions of Lemons and linebacker James Houston this weekend.

Gators commits and fans got #Lemons2TheSwamp trending on Twitter Sunday, and the UF coaching staff celebrated the news with lemon tweets.
