Florida football has been very aggressive over the past week handing out offers to players in the 2025 recruiting class.

Earlier today, Billy Napier and his staff went up north to offer a 4-star LB, who is rated as highly as the No. 89 overall player in the country per On3.

Kamar Archie, from Trenton, New Jersey, is one of the latest players to receive an offer from the Gators in the 2025 cycle.

Florida will have to outlast multiple Big Ten programs if they want to be the team on top of Kamar's recruitment when all is set and done.

Florida football: Extra experience

Kamar was originally a member of the 2024 class, but reclassified to 2025 after switching high schools. This gives him an extra year to develop his abilities before he makes his way to a college campus.

He only played in five games last season, but his sophomore year showed plenty of his potential on both sides of the ball.

Defensively he racked up 72 tackles and 9 TFLs, three pass deflections, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. As a running back he carried the ball 43 times for 750 yards (17.4 yards per carry) and eight touchdowns.

He ran for seven more touchdowns and 445 yards in just five games during his junior season.

Archie is a beast out of the backfield but remains as a highly touted linebacker. On3's Industry Ranking has Kamar as the 173rd-best player in the country, the 21st-best LB, and the No. 4 player coming out of New Jersey.

As of now Rutgers sits atop his recruitment, followed by Penn State, Oklahoma, and Maryland.

Kamar is yet to take a visit to Gainesville, but Florida's coaching staff will be working to get to The Swamp soon now that he has an official offer.
