Florida secured the commitments of three 2014 recruits over the weekend, landing South Carolina linebacker Christian Miller, offensive tackle Benjamin Knox and Jacksonville Raines offensive guard Travaris Dorsey.

Miller, a four-star recruit, had been leaning towards Florida as his choice of college destination since early January and made the decision official on Saturday.

“First and foremost, I am so blessed and thankful for this opportunity,” Miller wrote on his Facebook page. “I chose Florida because I feel like it’s the best fit for me academically, as well as athletically. Also I feel comfortable with the coach, as well as the campus and I feel like I made the right choice.

“I was also considering Alabama, Florida State and Georgia,” he added.

Miller is the son of former New York Giants linebacker Corey Miller and the 6-foot-4, 215-pounder was one of the top players at the Under Armour Combine in January.

Dorsey, who had offers come in from the likes of Georgia Tech, Louisville, North Carolina and Tennessee, spoke to ESPN about his decision.

“I decided to commit because they have a great team and a great educational program,” Dorsey said. “Plus it’s close to home, only about a 45-minute drive. That makes it easier for my mom and pops to come see me play.”

Dorsey is an athlete, is described as a student of the game and already measures at 6-foot-3 and 280 pounds.

Knox is an unknown commodity, recruited mostly based of his potential and measurements (6-foot-5, 255-pounds). He also had offers from Louisville and Utah.
