Florida Football: Enoch Wangoy reclassifies and will join Gators in 2024

One of the growing trends for Florida Football has been Billy Napier's willingness to look for some outside-the-box prospects to fill the rosters for the Gators.

One of those prospects, initially part of the class of 2025, has opted to reclassify and will be joining Florida this upcoming season.

Florida Football: No Stone Left Unturned

Enoch Wangoy is originally from Manchester, England but moved to Jacksonville when he was 16 years old. He was considered part of the class of 2025 and committed to the Gators last month.

Wagnoy is listed at 6'8" and intends to play offensive tackle in college, though he also played defensive end for the Zarephath Academy Eagles, a non-FHSAA affiliated school.

When we reviewed Wagnoy last month, we said:

"Wagnoy possess a seven foot wingspan, something that rivals players in the NFL, and played a vast array of sports growing up including basketball and soccer.

He only recently started playing football and it easy to see why Napier would take Wangoy on as a project. On film he is a giant, which isn't too shocking given the level of competition he faces. But for someone that just started out in the sport, he's not afraid to throw his weight around and let you know that he is the biggest player on the field.

But given his background in basketball and soccer, he is also agile and not just a stationary body waiting for contact to come his way."

The Gators announced today that Wagnoy is reclassifying and is going to be considered part of the class of 2024, paving the way for him to be on campus this summer and for the 2024 season.

There is no mistaking that Wagnoy is a project and the odds of him playing in 2024 are low. But given his size and mobility, the ceiling and potential for Wagnoy is there to develop and emerge in the next couple of seasons as a viable lineman for Florida.
