Florida Football Recruiting: Jayvan Boggs makes all the plays

The four-star wide receiver decommitted from Ohio State last week

Wide receiver depth is a bit of a weak spot for Florida Football. Tre Wilson is the clear number one, but beyond him, there are not many proven options at the college level.

It makes the pursuit of a recently decommitted prospect from Ohio State intriguing as the Gators try and lock down wide receivers for the 2025 class.

Florida Football: Not Bogged Down

Jayvan Boggs is a wide receiver out of Cocoa listed at 6'0" and 200 pounds. He is a top 100 prospect with Rivals, a mid-level four star with On3 and ESPN, while 247 has him as a three star.

He was named Mr. Football in Florida in 2023 and put up an eye popping 1,504 yards and 24 touchdowns last season.

On film, he is probably somewhere between the Rivals and ESPN grade. He doesn't jump out on tape with electric athleticism, yet he just keeps making plays against notable powers like St. Thomas Aquinas and Venice.

He possesses a deceptive level of shiftiness and relies more on getting defenders in a bad position to get by them than on pure speed. He has a number of double moves in his bag and showcases a greater variety of routes than a number of prospects we have profiled here on the site.

He opted out of his commitment to the Buckeyes last week and based on reports from Chad Simmons of On3 Florida is trying to hop back into the game with Boggs. The Gators originally offered him last June, with Georgia, Miami, and USC all in the mix to try and land him.

With another full season of high school football ahead of him, Boggs could go down as one of the most productive receivers in the history of high school football in Florida. Whether or not he sticks in the Sunshine State will be the next journey to follow.
