Florida was hard at work on the eve of National Signing Day. The Gators added a sixth offensive lineman as part of the 2014 recruiting class in the form of Andrew Mike who flipped his commitment from Vanderbilt.
Mike was not a member of the Commodores’ recruiting class for long, having committed to Vandy on Monday after an official visit to the school over the weekend. Then Florida came calling. The Gators reached out to Mike on Monday night, further expressing their interest in having him join their class. It didn’t take long for the offensive lineman to change his mind and on Tuesday night he committed to Florida.
The 6’7″, 270-pound Mike projects to offensive tackle at the college level. The height is there, but the weight needs to come. He is a three-star prospect across the board, ranking as the nation’s No. 60 offensive tackle according to Rivals and No. 61 according to 247. ESPN and Scout are a little higher on Mike than the others, putting him at No. 32 and No. 44 respectively at his position.
Despite having six offensive lineman as a part of the class, the Gators may not be done. Florida has a strong chance of adding four-star offensive tackle Derrick Kelly Jr. on National Signing Day.
