Copeland commits to Florida

Alabama and Florida State may be ranked higher right now, but Florida wins the battle for Jacob Copeland.

The Escambia High wide receiver commits to the Gators. Copeland making the announcement via an elaborate video online.

The Tide and Noles were his other finalists.

The senior is ranked as the nation's fifth best receiver and 46th overall prospect by ESPN. Game breaking speed, a great frame, and toughness have made him stand out.

ESPN's analysis compares him to Alabama's stud receiver Calvin Ridley.

Copeland starred for Pine Forest the past few years but transferred to Escambia for his senior season. He originally planned to make his choice in January at the Under Armour All-America Game but decided to move up the decision.
