Florida football has been more than willing to go into Texas in recent recruiting cycles to try and poach some of their top talent.
They went there last cycle to land 5-star QB DJ Lagway, and are after several top players out of the Lone Star State again this year.
The Gators have recently offered Max Granville, a 4-star edge out of Sugar Land, Texas.
Billy Napier and his staff are hoping to quickly become a contender for the elite defender, and become a major factor in his recruitment.
Florida football: Making plays on both sides of the ball
Granville is being recruited as an edge rusher, but is a dynamic playmaker on offense as well.
Off the edge in his junior season, Max totaled 48 tackles with 19 TFLs, 12 sacks, three forced fumbles, two recovers, and a scoop and score. On offense, he caught 21 passes for 609 yards and six touchdowns.
While Granville could go out and be a good pass catcher at the college level if he wanted, his home is off the edge for a reason.
On3's Industry Ranking has Max rated as the 133rd-best player in the country, the 10th-best edge rusher, and the 23rd-best player coming out of Texas.
At 6'3''-205, Granville will need to add a good bit of mass to his frame before he gets to the college level, but his numbers make his potential undeniable for college coaches.
Oklahoma is currently the heavy favorite to land Max, but he has yet to take visits anywhere else aside from the Sooners and SMU.
As his recruitment continues, we hope to see the Gators become a major player for him and make a push for his signature down the road.
