"My visit to Florida went well this weekend," said Thornton. "I went ahead and committed to Florida. It was just a fun visit, and I really felt comfortable there with the players and coaches. One of the coaches is supposed to come this week to talk about how I'll fit in next year and our workout schedule."
Thornton worked out hard in the summer to add several pounds of muscle, and he became one of the most coveted players in the south this year.
