    by -

    Class of 2023 wide receiver Aidan Mizell looks to be one step closer to making his collegiate commitment.

    On Thursday evening, Mizell announced a top seven on Twitter consisting of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Central Florida, and USC (Cali.).

    According to On3 Sports’ consensus rankings, Mizell is currently listed as a four-star player in the 2023 class. Additionally, On3 also has Mizell just outside the nation’s Top 100 at No. 103, the No. 17 wide receiver in the class, and the No. 21 prospect from the state of Florida.

    Mizell has collected an astounding 39 scholarship offers over the course of his recruiting cycle. Despite not including them in his final Top 7, the Orlando, Florida native did receive offers from programs such as Ole Miss, Penn State, Notre Dame, Michigan, Baylor, and Miami.

    Tennessee threw its name in the hat for Mizell’s recruitment back during a loaded week in January. From Jan. 19 to Jan. 26, Mizell hauled in offers from Alabama, Kentucky, Georgia, Penn State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and USC. One day later, Mizell would add offers from Michigan State, UMass, Nebraska, Arkansas, and Vanderbilt.

    It does look like things are going to be uphill for Tennessee, though. According to 247 Sports’ timeline, Tennessee is one of just three schools that Mizell has not been to but made his Top 7.

    Aidan Mizell has taken two unofficial visits to Florida and two to UCF. In addition, Mizell has also taken an unofficial visit to Georgia this year and was in attendance for an Alabama Junior Day event in January.

    According to On3 Sports, Florida looks to be running away with Mizell’s recruiting as the favorite at 93.5 percent.

    The 6-foot-2, 180-pound class of 2023 wide receiver currently plays for Boone High School in Orlando. Football isn’t his only sport, though, as Mizell is also a terrific track athlete. According to 247, Mizell “took fifth at the Florida 4A state track meet as a sophomore with a 48.55 in the 400-meter dash.

    Mizell’s mother, Ebony Robinson, was an All-American sprinter at the University of Florida.
