Farrier is a Gator

The Florida Gators added their second commitment to the 2015 class with the addition of receiver Deondre Farrier from Orlando (Fla.) Lake Nona. The teammate of 2014 commitment Ryan Sousa, Farrier comes with high regard from Lake Nona coach Anthony Paradiso who talked to Scout.com about the commitment.

Coach Paradiso has a high flying offense at Lake Nona that saw Sousa break state high school records for receptions and yards a year ago. He said that Deondre Farrier has been excited about being a Gator for a bit now.

"He went up there to the Junior Day a couple of weeks ago and he loved it," the coach said. "He's real good friends with Ryan.

This morning Coach Paradiso and Farrier talked on the phone with Florida head coach Will Muschamp to seal the deal. The Gators are getting a good one.

"Deondre is a very versatile receiver," Paradiso said. "Physically he is big and strong. He has a great burst and can play outside. He can stretch the field vertically but he is strong enough, quick enough, and athletic enough to take advantage from the slot position too. He is just a very overall well rounded wide receiver."

The 6-foot-2, 190 pound receiver has been a work horse and is driven in his pursuit of excellence.

"Ever since he showed up as a sophomore he has done everything he can to put himself in a position obtain a college scholarship," Paradiso said. "When he got here as a sophomore he got to see Ryan play as a junior and he had a great year. He has always been pushing himself because he's been battling as well. He has an excellent work ethic. He had a goal and he's on his way toward accomplishing it right now."
