What a difference a few days can make.
Deerfield Beach running back Brandon Powell, who was supposed to enroll at the University of Miami on Wednesday but was waiting on a transcript from his school to finish the process, decided Friday to commit to the University of Florida after receiving a scholarship offer to play for the Gators on Monday.
Powell's father, Brian, confirmed the move in text message to the Miami Herald on Friday morning while the two were heading to Gainesville to complete his enrollment.
"This came about unexpectedly," Deerfield Beach coach Allen Jackson said. "He had a desire to go to UF in his junior year. He wanted [an offer] and it never came. When this came in on Monday, it kind of threw a wrench in everything.”
