A pair of Power Five teams picked up four-star 2024 commitments from the state of Florida on Saturday. Quarterback Trever Jackson, from Jones High School in Orlando, announced he’s headed to Ole Miss, while Zaquan Patterson of Hollywood committed to Miami.

“Who wouldn’t wanna play for one of the most explosive offenses in college football?,” Jackson said, per 247Sports, crediting head coach Lane Kiffin and offensive coordinator Charlie Weis Jr. for his commitment.

Jackson is listed as the No. 15 overall quarterback in the 2024 class by the 247Sports composite, as well as the No. 222 player in the country and 32nd-ranked player in Florida. He had offers from schools that included Penn State, UCLA, Oklahoma and Texas A&M.

Jackson’s commitment moves Ole Miss to the No. 20 overall recruiting class, per the 247Sports composite.

Patterson is listed as the No. 3 safety and No. 77 overall prospect in the class, and No. 10 in the state. He is entering his senior season at Chaminade-Madonna Prep and had offers from blue-blooded programs of the Southeast, including Alabama, Auburn and LSU, as well as Oklahoma, Ohio State and Notre Dame.

Miami and head coach Mario Cristobal now have the 14th-ranked 2024 class, per the 247Sports composite.
