GAINESVILLE -- The University of Florida football team received its 16th public commitment on Friday shortly after the Gators' Friday Night Lights football camp, according to Rivals.com.
Georgia running back Mack Brown (5-11, 185 pounds) committed to UF coach Urban Meyer on Friday night. Brown, who plays at Lithonia (Ga.) Martin Luther King High, was one of Meyer's top targets for the class of 2010. Brown is listed by Rivals.com as one of the top 100 recruits in the country.
Brown chose Florida over Georgia, which has already received commitments from some of Brown's closests friends. Brown said facing his friends "is going to be pretty hard" but added that he "had to follow my heart."
