Florida's 2019 class, ranked No. 1 nationally by 247Sports, picked up a verbal commitment Wednesday from a defensive back out of Orlando.

Marcus Tillman Jr., a 6-foot, 195-pound safety out of Jones High, verbally committed to Gators coach Jim McElwain over offers from Ohio State and Ole Miss.

With Tillman's commitment, which is non-binding until he signs a letter of intent, the Gators have nine commits in the 2019 class.
