Great news (Subscription required) for the Gators recruiting effort today, as 5-star DE Carlos Dunlap has made his commitment to the University of Florida football program. Dunlap, the Fort Dorchester, SC product is ranked as the 5th best DE in the country by Scout.com.
Dunlap is an amazing athlete at DE, coming in at 6-6 and 240 lbs. Not only does he have the size: he was so athletic and quick in high school that he ran back kicks to go along with compiling 105 tackles and 24 sacks in his senior year.
This is just another 5-star recruit in this list of commits. Dunlap joins TE Aaron Hernandez, RB Chris Rainey, DT Torrey Davis, LB Lorenzo Edwards and OL James Wilson as top-ranked recruits in the 2007 Florida recruiting class...and there could possibly be more with WR Terrence Toliver, S Chad Jones, S Major Wright, WR Deonte Thompson and DL Justin Trattou.
Welcome aboard, Carlos. We're looking forward to your stay.
