Tookes Commits to Florida

Tookes, a wide receiver from Jacksonville, Florida, has committed to the Gators.

The Gators picked up a verbal commitment from wide receiver Kenny Tookes. "I actually committed last Wednesday," said Tookes. "Florida came by the school and I told them I was coming. I feel that Florida has the best of both worlds between football and academics. It is close to home and they love to throw the football. Plus, the Jacksonville prospects they have signed in the past are all doing to so well. Those guys are getting to the league."

Tookes, from First Coast High School in Jacksonville, caught 54 passes for 972 yards and 10 scores on the season. He was just named the MVP of the North/South Florida All-Star Game. Tookes caught 4 passes for 105 yards.
