Tauren Charles is sticking in the Sunshine State with his commitment.
"I committed to Florida," Charles, the 6-foot-3, 230-pound linebacker from Miami Northwestern, said.
"I feel real confident about my decision. They have a great program and they have a good situation for me to come in and make an impact."
Charles was also recruited by N.C. State, Rutgers, Auburn and had looks from Oklahoma, Nebraska and Syracuse.
"Florida is just up the road and it is a chance for me to play for a top SEC program," he said.
