Junior Day has proven to be very successful for the Florida Gators. The Gators received their fourth commitment in the past six days when tight end Camrin Knight committed to UF over Cincinnati, East Carolina, Georgia Tech, and Maryland. Florida held Junior Day last Saturday. Knight announced he would be a part of the Gator Nation on Twitter:

Florida is getting a player who will transition from defense. Scout has Knight as a three-star defensive end while 247 Sports and Rivals have him as an unrated outside linebacker as of now. It’s still early in the recruiting process, so many of the pledges have yet to be fully evaluated by the scouting services.. The 6’4″ 225 lb junior from Lincoln High School in Tallahassee projects to be a high-upside tight end despite playing mostly defense. Tight ends coach Derek Lewis ran the point for Knight’s recruitment with offensive coordinator Kurt Roper serving as secondary recruiter.
Knight becomes the fifth commitment of Florida’s 2015 class, all of which hail from the state of Florida. He joins Deondre Farrier, Tyler Jordan, and Tristan Payton as recruits to commit leading up to and following Junior Day, and the first commitment of the 2015 class, Deontai Williams.
