Recruiting: Austin Hardin Commits to Kick For Florida

Hey, a kicker committed! That's big news, right? The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has the skinny on Georgia kicker Austin Hardin committing to Florida:

Georgia’s No. 1 kicker is a Gator.

Marist’s Austin Hardin auditioned at three football camps this summer, going 3 for 3 with offers from Tennessee, Auburn and Florida. He committed to Gators coach Will Muschamp while on campus on Wednesday.

"Coach Muschamp told me from his staff’s evaluation of me, and from what he heard from others, he considered me the best specialist in the nation," Hardin told the AJC. "He put the offer out there for me, and said ‘We’d like you to come to Florida. You can come in right away and start off kickoffs.’

Hardin has three stars on ESPN ($) and two stars on Rivals, and, well, kickers don't get many stars, do they? Hardin could be the logical successor to Caleb Sturgis.
