Travaris Dorsey signs with Florida on National Signing Day 2014: Recruitment, highlights, impact

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville produced three offensive linemen for Florida in 2014, and Travaris Dorsey has the most interesting hair of the bunch.

Offensive guard Travaris Dorsey made his commitment to Florida official by signing his National Letter of Intent and sending it to the Gators' football offices. He has interesting hair.

But he's an offensive lineman, so Travaris' recruitment, highlights, and projected future impact for the Gators are a little less showy than the locks.

Recruitment

Dorsey is a physical offensive guard from Jacksonville, where he attended Raines High School. D should be a long-term guard at Florida, is one of the largest offensive linemen in this class. At 6'3" and 314 pounds, Dorsey already has the requisite size and frame to develop into a rotational guard who will be especially effective in the run game.

Dorsey held many BCS offers, including offers from Miami, North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia Tech and Louisville, but committed very early in the process, popping for Florida at a Gators junior day in 2013, and held fast to his pledge.

Highlights

Future Impact

Dorsey will be a semi-project offensive lineman in his first year at Florida. Dorsey, as mentioned, has the requisite size and upside to succeed at the next level, but is still a little raw, and is enrolling in the summer.

That's the recipe for a redshirt season, and he would immediately provide depth along the offensive interior in 2015 after doing so, helping shore up the center of Florida's offensive line with guards Jon Halapio and Ian Silberman leaving Gainesville.
