Florida Football offensive line coach Rob Sale has been able to pick up a couple of class of 2025 commitments recently, with Peyton Joseph and Enoch Wangoy announcing commitments to come to Gainesville.

But hoping to get in on a top 2026 talent, Sale extended an offer to a lineman who will be in high demand.

Florida Football: What Can Brown Do For You?

Kevin Brown is a class of 2026 offensive lineman out of Harrisburg, PA. Listed at 6'5" and 260 pounds, Brown is considered a top 100 overall prospect from three of the main services, with ESPN having yet to give Brown a grading.

His film warrants this accolade as Brown fits the mold of a physical lineman who is able to impose his will over weaker opposition. Given that he was a sophomore for the 2023 season and "only" 250/260 pounds, Brown played like a senior listed at 310 pounds.

His power seems effortless, he loves pancaking guys into the ground, and his burst off the line and out of his break is great. He loves contact and has a similar mean streak that we have seen out of other linemen Sale has gone after.

Florida offered Brown this week and join a growing list of teams that include FSU, Penn State, and Wisconsin to try an convince Brown to commit to them.

As is the case with all 2026 prospects, there is still a long way to go in his recruitment process. And given the normal pathway for offensive linemen, it would 2027 or beyond before he ever steps foot on a college field.

But he will be one to keep an eye on and one that Sale will probably continue to pursue.
