Gators get 2009 QB commitment

GAINESVILLE -- Prep quarterback Jordan Reed (class of 2009) recently committed to Florida, according to reporter Adam Gorney of the Internet fan website, GatorBait.net.

Reed of New London, Conn., is another New England commitment for the Gators. The region has become a pipeline of sorts for Florida thanks to assistant coach Steve Addazio, an excellent recruiter and a great offensive line coach.

Reed is the Gators' ninth commitment for the 2009 recruiting cycle. Players officially sign in February of next year. Reed (6-3, 235 pounds) passed for over 1,700 yards, 28 touchdowns and just two interceptions his junior season.

This appears to be a great pick up for UF coach Urban Meyer and his staff. Reed is the Gators' first quarterback commitment since John Brantley switched from Texas to Florida nearly two years ago. With so many great underclassmen quarterbacks already on the Gators' roster, highly rated prep quarterbacks were shying away from the Gators. Reed bucked the trend.

Thoughts on Reed joining the Gators next season? Should PETA be concerned that Reed plays high school ball for the New London Whalers? Is this a possible public-relations nightmare for the University of Florida? Turn your speakers down at work if you plan on watching the YouTube highlights.

what kind qb is he? dual threat or drop back brantley style?

just wondering...

Thanks for the updates goodman, i check this site several times a day for info!

How is carl moore doing? haven't heard much.

He's a dual threat qb but is very raw. If you go to youtube and type in his name you will get 2 video's of his (1 for passing highlights and 1 for running highlights)


Reed appears to be a typical dual-threat guy. According to Rivals, he runs a 4.5. (I'll believe that when I see it.) In any event, he looks the part.

I'll throw a post up about the newcomers and how they're faring while I'm at practice today. The first two days of blogging live from practice just included all the random observations I could find. I'll hone in today on one angle, newcomers, and blog about them live.


i just realized I confused Reed with Burton the 2010 commit.


I've seen Reed's highlight film before. Antwan Chiles, anyone?
