As the Florida Gators continue building their 2024 recruiting class, they added a massive and intriguing piece to their offensive line room in Enoch Wangoy. The 6'8", 314-pound offensive tackle, originally a 2025 recruit, reclassified and is set to join the program this May, providing the Gators coaching staff with a unique blend of size, length, and upside to develop.

Wangoy possesses a 7-foot wingspan, in addition to his towering height and near 315-pound frame. This size and length are coveted by offensive tackles tasked with protecting the edge against speed rushers. His size and broad wing span allow him to engulf defenders and create a strike zone that is difficult to get around.

While Wangoy is still extremely raw, having only played one season of American football at Jacksonville's Zarephath Academy, his physical tools represent an incredibly high ceiling. Coaches can mold and refine his technique, while his natural physical gifts are impossible to teach. As he gains more experience and reps, his size and athleticism could eventually make him a dominant force on the edge of the offensive line.

But it's not just Wangoy's size that is intriguing, it's also his mentality and willingness to improve continually. "You're getting someone who's going to give their all - every snap, every practice, every game. Someone who embraces challenges as opportunities for growth," he stated on social media.

For an offensive line unit that has lacked consistency in recent years, Wangoy represents a high-upside project that could pay significant dividends down the road. As he develops under the Gators coaching staff, his rare blend of size, length, and athletic upside could eventually make him a cornerstone piece helping solidify the offensive front.

Wangoy's unique background also adds an intriguing element to his potential. Born in England, he originally played soccer, basketball, and rugby before moving to the U.S. at 16 years old. Last year was his first time trying American football, and his diverse athletic background could aid in his development, as he's shown the ability to excel in multiple sports requiring a blend of size, strength, and athleticism.

The Gators are taking Wangoy on as a high-upside project, but he has all the physical tools offensive line coaches dream of working with. As he continues dedicating himself to the game of football, there's no telling how high his ceiling could be in Gainesville.
