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.
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.
“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.
