Florida football is continuing to build the pieces for their class of 2025 and received a bit of good news on Friday when tight end prospect Hollis Davidson announced his top seven schools and had the Gators in it.

Given the lack of an elite tight end in Gainesville since Kyle Pitts, Florida will continue to push hard.

Florida Football: Size and Speed

We highlighted Davidson back in October when the Gators first extended an offer.

At the time, we said:

"His willingness to block immediately jumps out on film, even when lined up in a receiver slot. He doesn’t shy away from opposing corners and safeties, and once engaged, he will hold his block even after the play has surpassed him.

His sheer size makes him a menace to try and guard. Even when he gets a bit twisted around or when the ball isn’t thrown with the greatest accuracy, Davidson does well locating the ball and securing catches that others probably wouldn’t have made."

Currently, Davidson is a four-star with Rivals, a three-star with 247 Sports, and is unrated by On3 and ESPN. With a listed height and weight of 6'6" and 215 pounds, Davidson feels like a prospect that should see his ranking rise as more eyeballs descend upon him.

Davidson announced his top seven schools, and Florida made the cut along with Georgia Tech, FSU, Miami, Penn State, and Auburn. According to 247, Russ Callaway is considered the main recruiter for Davidson.
