"I knew I was going to be a Florida Gator when my mother was in the environment," Jenkins said during his live announcement. "My dad said it was a good place."
Janoris Jenkins took a visit to Gainesville last week and chose the Gators over Clemson.
Jenkins stands at 5-11, 180-pounds and joins safety Dee Finley as the second secondary player in the class. He is also the fourth defensive player to commit to the Gators, joining defensive ends Earl Okine and Chaz Sutton.
"I'm going to come in and make big plays in practice and hopefully be a starter by the beginning of the season," Jenkins said.
Jenkins had 49 tackles as a junior, which led all Pahokee defensive backs. He helped shut down Trinity Catholic and current Gator quarterback John Brantley in the state championship game, causing them to have their worst statistical game of the season.
He is a four-star prospect.
