The Florida Gators need any help they can get along the offensive line. Among those bringing that help to Gainesville in the future is Delray Beach, FL (American Heritage) tackle Roderick Johnson. Johnson committed to the Gators back in March, but now he isn’t as confident as he once was.
“Probably like six out of 10 chance I might [stay committed].” – Roderick Johnson, 2013 Offensive Tackle
Johnson said there were some other schools in the mix, including Auburn and South Carolina. The 6’6″, 300-pound tackle also has offers from Louisville, Florida International, Southern Methodist, Central Florida, South Florida and West Virginia. He has no current plans to make any additional visits during the summer, but will keep his eyes open as he searches for the ideal situation.
Since Johnson committed, Florida also received commitments from Cameron Dillard and Joshua Outlaw along the offensive line. However, both are projected to play guard at the next level, leaving Johnson as the lone tackle.
The Gators may already be reacting to Johnson’s desire to continue his search. Saying there’s a 60% chance you “might” stay with your current decision is hardly a slam dunk. Florida needs to build depth along the entire line, making Johnson’s ultimate decision an important one.
