Breaking: Florida Gators Four-star RB Target says he see himself playing for the Gators

The Gators commit remains locked in with his early decision

Waltez Clark, a four-star running back from Tampa Plant, was the first athlete to join the Florida Gators’ 2025 recruiting class. He joined the Gators 2025 class in September of last year. Clark has traveled to Gainesville multiple times during his recruiting due to his long-standing devotion. He spent the weekend at his future home for his official tour.

He’s already aware with everything the Gators have to offer on campus, but this time he got to spend more time with the players and explore more of the city.

“I thought the official was great,” Clark added. “I feel like I got to meet all of the players and spend time with some of them. I got to explore and see more of Gainesville than just the facilities. “I really liked it.”

Waltez Clark, a four-star running back commit from Plant High School in Tampa, has reportedly ended his recruitment to the Florida Gators after abandoning his official visit.

This implies no more formal trips or engagement with other schools.

“No. When asked if he planned to make any additional visits, he replied, “It’s done.”

When asked if he was still talking to other schools, he replied that he had “canceled all of it”.

Clark is one of two running backs committed to the class, with Chad Gasper. Gasper previously indicated that following his visit more than two weeks ago, Florida informed him that they intend to take only two running backs in the class.

With Clark effectively ending his recruitment, it appears that the Gators’ high school recruiting board at the position is complete.

“They appreciated it,” Clark said of UF’s recruitment shutdown. “I wouldn’t say they asked me to do it. They told me I could talk to other colleges, but I don’t want to.

This weekend’s visit reaffirmed his choice. He discussed the relationships he’s developing with running backs coach Jabbar Juluke and current starter Montrell Johnson, who served as his player-host during his visit.

“All the players just taking me in as one of them, and then I’ve already been liking the place,” Clark said.

Clark made the first promise to Florida’s 2025 class when he pledged in September, just after the Gators defeated then-No. 11 Tennessee 29-16. He chose Florida over numerous other options, including Florida State, Notre Dame, and Ohio State.

If Clark’s commitment to Florida holds up, it will be the Gators’ second straight season signing the class’s first commit.

Myles Graham, a linebacker, was the first commit and signee of the Gators’ 2024 class. He, like Clark, effectively ended his recruitment when moving to Gainesville before his senior year.

Clark’s commitment also helps to cement Florida’s running back room for next season, particularly since Johnson and backup back Cam Carroll will both be out of eligibility.
