Florida football recruiting: JUCO DT Darious Cummings commits to Gators

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Cummings gives Florida a big body up front.

Florida's recruiting efforts haven't stopped, and the last home game of the 2012 season was an opportunity to get a few recruits on campus, like massive Georgia offensive tackle Trenton Brown and defensive end Ebenezer Ogundeko. But only one has pulled the trigger for the Gators so far: Darious Cummings announced his commitment to Florida on Sunday, ESPN's Derek Tyson reports.

Cummings is currently at East Mississippi Community College, where current Gators defensive tackle Damien Jacobs was, and had previously been a Florida State commitment as the No. 130 prospect in the class of 2010 according to ESPN before heading to junior college. But he'll graduate this fall, and head to Florida in the spring, helping shore up a line that will lose Omar Hunter due to graduation, and is likely to lose both Sharrif Floyd and Dominique Easley to the NFL Draft.

Cummings is also a product of Titusville, Florida's Astronaut High, like Gators great Cris Collinsworth before him, and is part of Florida's resurgence in in-state local recruiting under Will Muschamp. Four current Florida players/commits (Christian Provancha, Marcus Maye, Cummings, and 2014 commitment Travonte Valentine) are all from Brevard County, one of the largest contingents from the Space Coast in years. Brevard previously produced Reggie Nelson and Joe Cohen, both of whom were Palm Bay High grads.

And Florida might not be done with the East Mississippi pipeline, either: Jarran Reed, another defensive tackle from the school, is considering the Gators.
