"I committed to Florida this morning," said Brandon James. "After the unofficial visit I took this weekend, I took some time to sit down with my dad and my coach, and that was the place I wanted to be."

James delivered the news to the head man himself.

"I called up Coach Meyer this morning. he was happy, and he wanted to know if I was sure about it, and that he was happy to have me."

The recruiting momentum that has vaulted Florida into the Top 5 was a factor for James.

"I'm looking forward to playing in the SEC. Here at St. Augustine, I'm used to being around a lot of great coaches and great players. I wanted to go to Florida with more great coaches and great players, and hopefully I can keep winning championships on the next level too."

James has helped lead his St. Augustine team to the Semi Finals against North Marion this weekend.
