On Wednesday the Florida Gators landed a commitment from 2015 3-star tight end Camrin Knight after he attended the Gators annual Junior Day events over the weekend. Knight chose the Gators over Cincinnati, East Carolina and Georgia Tech.
The Tallahassee, FL native is the 24th best tight end in the nation and is rated as one of the top 125 players in the entire nation regardless of position.
The 6-4, 225 pounder is a very athletic tight end that possesses a good frame with the ability to split out wide in the slot position. Knight will, however, need to work on his route running as well as adding size so that he will be able to move inside and be able to efficiently run block.
Although the Gators had one of their worst seasons in recent memory last year by going 4-8, they recruited well in 2014 and finished with a top-10 overall class. For 2015, the Gators are now beginning to gain momentum as they have picked up four commitment within the past week.
The Gators have five overall commitments for the class of 2015 which ranks 19th in the nation and ninth in the SEC. Florida’s class is led by safety Deontai Williams, who was the first commitment of the Gators class back in early January.
All of the Gators commitments are of 3-star status, and Knight is the first tight end to pledge to the Gators in this class.
