Leon High School quarterback D’Anfernee McGriff committed to Florida on Wednesday afternoon. Though he plays quarterback in Tallahassee, Scout projects him as a running back in college and he could serve as an h-back or a versatile piece of Jim McElwain’s offense.
He ranks as the No. 42 running back in the country and a four-star prospect. A 6-3, 220-pound athlete he could line up almost anywhere on the offensive side of the ball.
McGriff was committed to Auburn but took a visit to Florida over the weekend of January 23. He announced on Monday that he de-committed from Auburn, and Florida was assumed as the destination since it was the only other program he visited during the process.
