Florida Football Recruiting: Rod Johnson Becomes Commit No. 11, Bulks Up Gators' Offensive Line

THE TRIUMPHANT RETURN OF FIRED UP COACH BOOM.

Still sad about Florida's Elite Eight loss? Fortunately, there is always football on the horizon, and Will Muschamp's relentless recruiting is paying off in spades. The Gators received their 11th commitment for the Class of 2013 early Sunday morning, as offensive lineman Rod Johnson pledged to Florida ($); GatorNation's Derek Tyson broke the news, and Johnson confirmed the news on Twitter.

(No one tell him he misspelled "committed," because that would be an NCAA violation, okay?)

Johnson is a massive human being already, at 6'5" and 290 pounds according to ESPNU (Tyson reports 302 pounds in his story), and he is from Delray Beach's American Heritage, a perennial power down south. He's just one of what could be many offensive linemen in this year's class — Tyson suggests four or five more, which is, in layman's terms, "a lot" — and should add much-needed depth and bulk to a line that has been one of the disappointments of Florida's last two years.
