Florida's massive recruiting day on Saturday, which coincided with several dozen visitors coming to campus for Junior Day, produced six commitments. The fifth commitment of the day and ninth for the Class of 2013 came from linebacker Dillan Lawson, as first reported by to Gator Country's Andrew Spivey, with some additional confirmation from Only Gators' Adam Silverstein.

Lawson, from Crestview in the Florida Panhandle, is less immediately impressive than many of the prospects who have committed to Florida so far in this recruiting cycle, with no stars from Rivals as of yet, but he could be a game-changer for Florida at the Buck position. SB Nation recruiting editor Bud Elliott shot me a tweet after watching Lawson's junior tape, and he's impressed.

Found Lawson's JR film. Like it. Good quickness, violent, chases stuff down. More buck than true backer. Four-star type.

If Will Muschamp's plan is to stockpile linebackers who have speed and size — Lawson's 6'4", according to Rivals, and joins Daniel McMillian and James Hearns in the Class of 2013 — I like it.
