Blakely's Choice was Clear

Running back Mike Blakely committed to Florida after a tooth and nail battle between the Gators and the Auburn Tigers. Blakely says he knows he made the right decision choosing Florida and will not take any other visits as he is tired of the whole recruiting process at this point and feels very confident in his decision to attend UF.

Mike Blakely made his announcement with a host of friends around him and some advisors and coaches that have been responsible for setting him up to succeed.

Blakely entered the room in a red Manatee High School jump suit and left all decked out in Gator gear after revealing his college choice. He put on a Gator hat when he said he was going to UF but it didn't stop there. Blakely was literally decked out in Florida gear from head to toe even revealing gator socks to the audience. Blakely says he plans on enrolling early and is looking forward to starting his college career at UF.
