Florida football wins big, and the Gators land a four-star linebacker from another SEC East school
Florida added Jaden Robinson, a 4-star linebacker from South Carolina, to their defense, giving their defense a significant boost. Robinson had previously committed to South Carolina.
In the SEC East, Florida football has made it obvious that they will not submit to the Bulldogs of Georgia, but suddenly there is hope after a change of heart.
Jaden Robinson, a four-star linebacker from Lake City who had previously committed to South Carolina, will remain in Florida and join the Gators. Thanks to the relocation, Florida now has a greater chance to compete in the division and hold their own against their competitors/reigning national champs.

Robinson has now joined Florida’s recruiting class, which is now ranked No. 13 in the nation, as its 17th member. Robinson is presently ranked as the No. 32 linebacker and No. 70 overall prospect from Florida in the class of 2023 by 247 Sports. He is the team’s first linebacker recruit as well.
In an interview with Gator Country, Robinson expressed his opinions about where he would play on the Gators’ defense in an interview after deciding to join the team. Robinson has nothing but love for the Gators’ coaching staff.
“Just linebacker right now,” Robinson said on what the coaches have told him about where he would play. “They haven’t said Mike or Will yet but that will be up to Coach Bateman. They like that I play well at the Mike, and they need me. Mike P [Mike Peterson] and Coach [Jay] Bateman,” he said on the coaches he was around the most. “They’re great coaches and great guys. They have great energy.”
Robinson will be a member of the Gators’ outstanding 2023 recruiting class, which also features running back Treyaun Webb, wide receiver Aidan Mizzell, and cornerback Ja’Keem Jackson.
Although there is still time for the Gators to potentially attract additional people to the swamp, they have already succeeded in keeping one of their own inside the state.
