Last recruiting cycle, the hype machine all summer for Florida football was in full gear during their pursuit of Jeremiah Smith. Ultimately the Gators fell short to secure the elite wide receiver.

With recruiting for the class of 2025 in full swing, the Gators are making another go of it for an elite wide receiver out of New Jersey.

Florida Football: Jersey Boy

Quincy Porter is listed at 6'3" and 190 pounds out of Oradell, NJ, about an hour from New York City. He is a consensus top 100 prospect from all four major recruiting services, with On3 ranking him the highest at 33rd overall.

On film, he can get behind defenses though we wouldn't classify him as a burner. He ran track last season in the 200 meter dash with a time of 23.56 seconds, which is fine but not burner status.

His strength, however, is using his length to simply catch everything thrown his way. With his wingspan, Porter has no issues reaching over defensive backs to win 50/50 battles. The degree of difficulty for some of his catches on film is quite high, and he definitely fits the mold of the big-bodied receiver that Florida wide receiver coach Billy Gonzales normally likes to recruit.

Porter is going to be making a trip to the Sunshine State next weekend and double up with unofficial visits to Florida and to FSU. He also has offers from all the big name schools like Alabama, Georgia, and Ohio State.

It is still very early in the process for Porter. On3's "Prediction Machine" has Rutgers in the lead, but we would be stunned if Porter stays in New Jersey when all is said and done.

As Florida tries to get some momentum going for its 2025 class, a player like Porter is a good place start.
