Top QB recruit Matt Corral reaffirms commitment to Florida despite firing
The Florida Gators football program may be in flux with the firing of head coach Jim McElwain, but it appears that at least some of their key 2018 recruits are sticking with their commitments.
Matt Corral, a quarterback from California who is one of the top recruits in the country, said on Twitter that “nothing is changing this class.”
Im not answering any interview questions about whats going on, that isnt my place to speak about. Nothing is changing this class.#AllBite18

Safety Randy Russell, a 2018 recruit from Miami, also said he was staying firm with his commitment:

That’s a good sign for the Gators. Programs are typically in danger of losing commits any time they change coaches, but it seems like the Gators will at least keep a few key ones.
Corral, the quarterback at famed Long Beach Poly High School, has thrown for 19 touchdowns and five interceptions this season. He has 93 touchdown passes and 20 interceptions in his high school career, along with 19 rushing touchdowns.
