Florida Gators Pick Up Huge Commitment in OT David Sharpe


Even without a offensive line coach and offensive coordinator, Florida picked up a huge piece to their recruiting puzzle Thursday. Offensive tackle David Sharpe chose the Gators over the Tennessee Volunteers and Clemson Tigers. Derek Tyson of ESPN broke the news:


Sharpe is a massive four-star recruit from Providence School of Jacksonville. He’s 6’6″, 288 lbs and is a top-20 recruit by most of the rankings. Sharpe already has the size to play tackle at the collegiate level and has room to grow into a 300+ pound lineman. Because of his height, Sharpe has a tendency to lose leverage. However, he has a basketball background, which contributes to his athleticism and nimble feet. Sharpe may also play basketball for Billy Donovan at UF. Sharpe becomes the 17th commitment in Florida’s class and the 10th in the ESPN300.
