"I just verbaled to Florida and I am fired up," Jonathan Dowling said. "I wish I could play a game for them right now."
At 6-3.5 and 187-pounds, Dowling has loads of potential and is a welcome addition to the class of 2010. From Bradenton (FL) Southeast High School, Dowling ended his junior season with 14 interceptions, 58 tackles, two defensive touchdowns, three blocked punts and eight pass breakups.
Recruited for the free safety position, Dowling has a bench press of 240-pounds, squat of 320-pounds and a 245-pound power clean to go along with his 4.5 speed. Dowling feels relieved to have this decision out of the way, so he can concentrate on getting bigger, faster and stronger. The Florida staff also appears to be relieved.
"[Urban Meyer] told me I made his day and then he got crunk," Dowling said.
FightinGators.com will have more on Dowling's commitment.
