Trattou to Florida

5-Star DL Justin Trattou, who had been committed to Notre Dame, committed to play in Gainesville today.  Trattou is ranked the #4 DE in the nation by Scout.com, and should compliment another DE commit, Carlos Dunlap, starting next season:

"(Florida) offered me back in the beginning of summer," he said. "It was pretty hectic because that was the week I was committing (to Notre Dame). I pretty much committed early because my high school team prepared to win the state championship and did and I wanted to get (the recruiting) out of the way for the season.. We ended up number one in the state and seven in the country."
[...]
"After watching how that defensive line played, I saw them a couple of times," he said. "I always wanted to check them out and got the opportunity. It was more than I expected and I am really looking forward to getting down there.
Wow, what a recruiting class this is turning out to be.  That makes 7 5-star recruits coming to the University of Florida next season, including 3 on the defensive line - an area that desperately needed it after the departures this season.

More to come as I find it - until then, welcome to Gainesville Justin Trattou.
