Virus or not, Florida football has been doing its job getting the best talent from everywhere they can.
Florida football has been doing a great job in the recruiting department but they have really excelled in getting players from the transfer portal and junior colleges.
The Gators offered two of the very best to be a part of Gator Nation, one transfer, Stewart Reese from Mississippi State. The second a JUCO standout, De’Jahn Warren.
Stewart Reese, OL
Reese has a lot of familiarity with coach Dan Mullen as he has been apart of the Mississippi State football team for the last three years. He will be a graduate transfer to Florida football and will be eligible this season.
A starter at tackle and at the guard positions he will be able to come in and contribute right away. He is familiar with Mullen’s playbook and will be a force on the line.
Stewart is the older brother of linebacker David Reese. so altogether he has Gator ties. Reese will also bring depth to a position that was in need of help.
His versatility will be an added advantage for the line. The transfer portal has given the Gators, Stewart, and two five star guys for this season. Great moves by Mullen and his team.
De’Jahn Warren DB
This 6-foot, 175-pound defensive back comes out of Lackawanna Junior College. he has his mindset on Florida as he understands the education side and the history of Florida football sending defensive backs to the NFL;
“Honestly, I woke up to a text message from him, that was the first thing I seen. Before he offered, he asked me for my transcripts and he said my grades were in good shape and he offered.”
On why he thinks Florida is a good fit for him;
“I know that they produce a lot of defensive backs and send a lot of them to the league…I use to watch Vernon Hargreaves a lot.”
He has all the skills a Florida football defensive back has, he has speed, he can cover one on one and breaks on the ball quickly. He will be an added force to a defensive backfield that will have plenty of skill.
Once again Mullen and staff have done a fantastic job of finding the best talent no matter where they are.
With another top ten recruiting class and the added transfer talent, they have gathered, they are ready for one of the best seasons in a long while.
