He is also the second defensive commit to Florida with Josh Griffis.
Who is Kedrick Bingley-Jones?
Kedrick Bingley-Jones is a four-star defensive end out of Providence Day School in Charlotte, North Carolina. The out of state recruit is the second highest ranked recruit in Florida’s class behind Keyvone Lee. With Kedrick’s commitment to Florida, the Gators now have the 7th ranked 2020 class in the country. Bingley-Jones is a highly touted recruit as he already received 18 offers from some of the top programs in the country. He has offers from schools like Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Tennessee. On ESPN, Bingley-Jones is the 179th ranked recruit and the 21st ranked defensive end in the country. On Rivals, Bingley-Jones is the 222nd ranked recruit and the 15th ranked strong-side defensive end in the country.
Kedrick Bingley-Jones is a 6’4” 260 pound strong-side defensive end. The newest Florida commit has a good first step as he gets to the backfield quickly and creates havoc. He has a great frame and could add some more solid weight to out muscle offensive lineman. In his sophomore season, Bingley-Jones had 60 tackles with 22 tackles for loss and seven sacks. He also forced three fumbles and recovered one. Bingley-Jones has also played some defensive tackle in high school and is more of a run stopper than a pass rusher. Florida has landed a really nice 2020 commit that they will need to fight for as more school will come calling. Great pickup for the Gators as he could be a big part of Florida’s defense in the future.
