CLOSED: Spider ID?

Weston, FL

Found this guy in my dorm room in South Florida and I have been trying to find an ID online but nothing seems to match exactly. Its size is between a quarter and a half dollar.

This looks like a spider in the family Sparassidae (huntsman/giant crab spiders). Large specimens can deliver a painful but not dangerous bite if mishandles; they are not aggressive towards humans.
