Florida Football Recruiting: Jordan Sherit Commits, Gives Gators 20 2013 Recruits

After a false start on Friday night, Jordan Sherit's really a Florida commitment. Like, really: ESPN's Derek Tyson reports that Sherit committed to the Gators on Saturday, giving Florida 20 commitments in the Class of 2013.

Beyond being one of 20 Gators Will Muschamp has convinced to sign on before the 2012 season even begins, Sherit's a damn good player. Rated a four-star defensive end by Rivals, Sherit's got very good size at 6'5" and can put some pounds on a frame that carries only about 235 of them right now. And his athleticism isn't in question, as he showed off some surprising skills at The Opening earlier this July.

Here's SB Nation Recruiting's Bud Elliott writing about Sherit a couple of weeks ago:

And at 6'4" and 240 pounds, Sherit can do a lot. He is still early in his development, but he should eventually be able to hold 260 or more pounds after working in a college strength program. He profiles as a weak-side defensive end.

Florida's Class of 2013 could conceivably be entirely full before the Gators play a game this fall. Putting aside how radical that really is, the idea that Muschamp et al. have been able to do all this recruiting while selling little more than playing time and the promise of Florida's future is a staggering piece of work.
