The Florida Gators have almost completed their set of announcements of early enrollees, with 2017 tight end Kemore Gamble’s enrollment being announced in a tweet on Wednesday morning.

Gamble had previously signed financial aid paperwork with Florida, allowing the school to have extensive contact with him, in December.

Gamble committed to Florida last April, about a month after decommitting from Miami. He’s a four-star tight end whose skills appear best put to use in the passing game:

Gamble profiles as a hybrid wideout/tight end at the collegiate level, and he has the frame (he's listed variously at 6'3" or 6'4" and around 220 pounds) to fit that role. His highlight reel suggests to me that it might fit him, too, as he's got the power to vex corners and make hay as an in-line blocker, but the quickness to get past linebackers and safeties that could cover him if he flexes out of a formation.

Gamble is also the fourth early enrollee in the Gators’ 2017 recruiting class announced by Florida, joining defensive tackle Kyree Campbell, athlete Kadarius Toney, and offensive tackle Kadeem Telfort.

Florida is also likely to announce the enrollments of planned early enrollees Shawn Davis and James Houston some point in the near future. Its Drop-Add period for Spring-term student registration ended Tuesday, suggesting that any early enrollees would need to be either in Gainesville or enrolled, whether announced or not, to make it in for the Spring term.

Davis, who was a high school teammate of Gamble and signed financial aid paperwork at the same time Gamble did, tweeted last week that he was “on his way” to Gainesville. Houston tweeted “What’s up Gainesville” on Sunday.

The remaining members of Florida’s 2017 recruiting class should sign with Florida on or around National Signing Day in February, and arrive in Gainesville for the Summer B term in late June.
