UF gets commit from watch list DT


The Gators grabbed their second verbal commitment for the recruiting class of 2013 on Saturday when ESPNU 150 watch list defensive tackle Caleb Brantley (Crescent City, Fla./Crescent City HS) committed to Florida, ESPN's GatorNation.com reports.

The 6-foot-3, 295-pound athlete was one of several 2013 prospects in Gainesville Saturday. "The visit was crazy man," Brantley said "I felt at home. I love UF with a passion. That's where I want to spend my college years."

"It just felt like a family, and I want to be a part of a big family like that," Brantley said. "I have a great chance to play early there, and I have a great relationship with the coaches. Coach [Dan] Quinn and [Bryant] Young were both very happy when I told them I committed. They were real excited."

Florida State and South Florida also offered Brantley. He joins running back Adam Lane (Winter Haven, Fla./Winter Haven) on Florida's 2013 commit list.
