Florida has signed JUCO offensive lineman Drew Sarvary, the school announced early Wednesday afternoon.

Sarvary played at North Florida Christian in high school, then started the final 10 games of Florida A&M's 2012 season as a true freshman before departing for Tyler Junior College in Texas, where he was named to the All-Southwest Junior Football Conference's first team this fall.

Sarvary will enroll in January 2014, and will have two years to play two seasons of football for the Gators. He'll immediately provide depth for a 2014 Florida offense that loses Jon Halapio, Jonotthan Harrison, and Kyle Koehne to graduation, and Ian Silberman to a graduate transfer.

But he may well end up as a reserve, with a number of spots on the line likely to go to players who finished the 2013 season on injured reserve. D.J. Humphries and Chaz Green are the front-runners at left and right tackle, respectively, and Max Garcia and Tyler Moore would be the logical candidates to play at left and right guard. Harrison's departure leaves a hole at center, but redshirt freshman Cameron Dillard could be the player who emerges at that position.
