Five-star Texan heads to Florida

Make it four football commitments on the 2002 recruiting campaign for the University of Florida. The nation's No. 32 ranked player overall and the No. 4-ranked wide receiver has committed to the Gators.
Flower Mound (Texas) Marcus wide receiver Robert Timmons, according to the Dallas Morning News, has committed to the University of Florida.
Timmons also considered Texas and Miami among others. He had previously listed the Longhorns as his leader.
Timmons, who is 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, is considered the Lone Star State's most explosive receiver and is ranked as the No. 5 player in the state of Texas.
Timmons only played in three games as a junior because his status as a transfer to Marcus was disputed. Timmons had 259 yards on 13 catches as a junior. As a sophomore quarterback at Dallas Roosevelt, Timmons was named District MVP.
Timmons, despite playing in only three games so far this season, has made 26 catches for 392 yards and five touchdowns.
Timmons told a Dallas Morning News reporter of his commitment to the Gators today at Marcus High School. Timmons is the second receiver commitment the Gators have earned in the month of October.
Mike Williams, a four-star receiver from Tampa (Fla.) Plant, also committed to UF earlier this month.
The duo gives the Gators the makings of the top wide receiver class in the country, although the 6-foot-5, 200-pound Williams is saying he will still take other official visits. He is considered a soft commitment.
