OT Roderick Johnson recommits to Florida

Al Messerschmidt

After backing out of his original commitment, Roderick Johnson returns to Florida's 2013 recruiting class.

American Heritage School offensive tackle Roderick Johnson has recommitted to the Florida Gators, returning to the recruiting class after decommitting from the school in August after some coaching changes left his decision up in the air.

The three-star recruit out of Delray Beach took visits from both Florida and the Florida State Seminoles in recent days, but eventually Johnson decided to return to the decision he had made in March, to stick with Florida. Florida State is experiencing some coaching upheaval of its own, and reportedly, a in-home visit was enough to convince Johnson to go with his original choice.

Johnson's decision brings coach Will Muschamp's class to 25 recruits and the new offensive lineman corps up to five for 2013.

Florida's recruiting class ranks among the nation's best, and is currently ranked third by Rivals.com, bolstered heavily by 14 four-star recruits as counted by the site. ESPN currently ranks the Gators as having the top class in the nation.
