Former five-star wide receiver Justin Shorter said Sunday he is transferring from Penn State to Florida.

Shorter, who entered the transfer portal in November, will have to sit out the 2020 season under NCAA transfer guidelines, barring a waiver.

“Officially committed,” he posted on Twitter, along with three photos wearing a white Gators uniform.

Shorter was the nation’s No. 8 overall recruit in the Class of 2018 by the 247 Sports Composite, as well as the No. 1 receiver and No. 1 player in New Jersey.

The 6-foot-4, 235-pound wideout caught 15 passes for 157 yards and rushed once for nine yards for the Nittany Lions during the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
