Florida football recruiting is pretty locked in on the 2024 recruiting class and has some things in motion in the 2025 cycle as well.
But now we have some action in the 2026 cycle, which I’m still not entirely convinced is a real year.
The Gators have extended an offer to Kendre Harrison, an ATH in the 2026 class coming out of Reidsville, North Carolina.
Florida already has a good amount of offers out to prospects in this class, but none are really as interesting as Kendre.
Real quick, I want everyone to think back to when you were a freshman in high school. Think of you and your friends. Now without sounding weird, how big were you guys?
If I had to guess, not many of you were 6’8”-230 heading into third-period algebra.
Kendre is. The guy is already comically larger than everyone else on the field and he’s still got three years left.
That size, and the upside that comes with it, has already caught the eye of a lot of elite schools. Alabama, Ohio State, Tennessee, and North Carolina have already shown him offers, but that list will fill up quickly.
When you look at his film, you see him physically dominate everyone else, but it’s also clear that he’s a freshman who hasn’t quite gotten used to his size yet.
His route running isn’t that great, but he already has good hands and just goes over the top of everybody to make contested catches look easy.
Kendre is a bulldozer as a blocker, just charging through defenders and flattening them without slowing down.
He gets reps at D-end as well, where he’s just as dominant and blows plays up before they even start.
He’s a freshman, so obviously he needs polishing. But it doesn’t take a genius to see that this kid is going to be one of the top recruits in the country and has the potential to be one of the best players at the college level.
