He holds a host of offers from other SEC schools as well as offers from Miami (Fla.) and Florida State. He has taken trips to both Miami and Florida State, according to the report from 247Sports.
Bronson is the No. 194 player in the 2014 cycle.
The Gators are still in the mix for the Ft. Myers product, but there are others that will likely take his place on the Gators' recruiting board.

Just wanted to let you know I'm opening back up my recruitment. I'd like to get to visit some schools that I wasn't able to see earlier in the process as well as figure out which place is best for me and my future, not just football.
While the Gators are still in the mix, there will be a host of top programs looking to take an edge in Miller’s recruiting. According to the report, Alabama is a team to watch.

Finding sleepers in a recruiting class is an art form for coaches. Will Muschamp and Co. think that they have done just that with tight end Montez Sweat.
Keith Niebuhr reported the Florida offer, via 247Sports (subscription required), and had the opportunity to speak with Sweat.
Sweat told Niebuhr "I've talked to both Florida and Vanderbilt on the phone. They're showing a lot of interest. They're both in the SEC and they both send a lot of guys to the NFL."
According to the report, both Vanderbilt and Florida offered on Monday.

Getting listed as a finalist for one of the nation’s top defensive linemen is always a plus. On Thursday, 5-star defensive tackle Gerald Willis made it known that Florida was among his finalists.
According to Max Olson with ESPN (subscription required), his top four are LSU, Texas A&M, Florida and Louisiana Tech. Willis said to Olson ““I’m wide open right now,” and that “I’ve narrowed it down to a top four, but I’m not going to be disrespectful and not talk to college coaches if they come. That’s the least I can do if they’re offering, I can see what they have to offer.”
Florida will make a strong push for Willis as it looks to add depth to a position that will lose Dominique Easley and Damien Jacobs after the fall.
The nation’s No. 1 inside linebacker Raekwon McMillan is in the sights of a number of top programs, and according to his personal Twitter account, Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss, Florida and Notre Dame have all made house calls (h/t Kipp Adams) this week:
The experts Crystal Ball predictions from 247Sports has him headed to Ohio State, but there is a lot of time left in the recruitment of this Georgia star.
Florida is in the mix for the stud linebacker, but the Gators sit well outside the top five, and unless there is a major shift, they will swing and miss on McMillan.
The nation’s No. 1 wide receiver Ermon Lane is drawing a lot of attention, but three schools are sticking out right now.
Lane is a program-changing talent who could be a huge asset to the Brent Pease offense. He is a possession type player who churns up a lot of extra yards after the catch.
The Gators need to land Lane. It would leave a mark on the state and put another top skill-position player in the class.
David Sharp is a huge offensive tackle prospect out of Florida who is in the heat of a recruiting battle between the Gators and Florida State.
Both teams are receiving a lot of interest from Sharp, but the “Gators appear to be in the driver's seat,” according to an ESPN report.
Sharp is a huge prospect at 6’6", 288 pounds and will continue to see his recruitment heat up in the next few months.
This is a player to watch closely as the Gators try to pull a commitment.
The Gators secured a big pledge on April 2 when 4-star defensive tackle Anthony Moten made his intentions to sign with Florida known.
He is a very talented defensive lineman who could be an instant-impact type body once he lands on campus.
The problem for Florida is that his recruitment didn’t end with his pledge.
Alabama and Miami are still in heavy pursuit of the talented lineman, and his pledge may not be as secure as once thought. He is listed to still have interest in Miami by 247Sports.
Moten may be committed, but his recruitment won’t end until signing day.
Florida has started the recruiting season off strong, currently holding nine commitments. The class is currently ranked No. 4, with 5-star running back Delvin Cook headlining the class.
There is a huge need for additional playmakers in the backfield, and Cook fills the need.
Offensive line is also a major focus, with three commitments landing along the offensive front. OG Travaris Dorsey and OT Benjamin Knox committed on Feb. 16, while OG Joseph Paul held off until March 19.
All three are middle-of-the-pack for this class, but they have the framework and athleticism to be very good additions to the Gators squad.
Will Grier is another major piece of this class at quarterback. He is the No. 2 pro-style QB and No. 36 overall.
He has a live arm and is very accurate with the football. He plays smart and has the athleticism to make plays with his feet if needed. A few extra pounds will go a long way once he gets to college, but there is enough upside to get excited about his future in Gainesville.
