In a move that had a pair of Florida fan bases smiling, and then shaking a fist, Levi Jones’ National Signing Day trick has generated a serious buzz on social media.

Jones, a four-star recruit listed as the 65th best player in the 2017 recruiting class by ESPN, announced his college commitment during a ceremony at Westlake High School in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday morning. Jones stood up from the podium and unzipped a jacket to reveal a Florida Gators shirt.

Before Gators fans could begin celebrating their newest signee, Jones told the cheering crowd, “Y’all better chill,” before taking off the UF shirt and revealing a Florida State shirt underneath.

OK, Levi, you got us.

As the crowd audibly gasped, the 6’3” recruit then took off the Seminoles shirt to reveal a third and final shirt, this time indicating his commitment to the USC Trojans with the shirt and the school’s signature phrase, “Fight on.”

Jones, the nation’s fourth-ranked outside linebacker according to ESPN, joins what is clearly a top-10 USC recruiting class.

Despite getting stood up by Jones, both Florida State and Florida also have fared well on National Signing Day.
