3-star OL Tyler Jordan commits to Florida Gators


Just a day after getting a commitment from 3-star wide receiver Deondre Farrier, head coach Will Muschamp and the Florida Gators picked up another commitment on Saturday.

3-star offensive tackle Tyler Jordan gave his pledge to the Gators.

The 6’4, 280-pounder attends Bishop Kenny High School in Jacksonville, Florida.

Luke Stampini of Gatorbait has the scoop.

Jacksonville (Fla.) Bishop Kenny offensive lineman Tyler Jordan visited the University of Florida on Monday of this week, but he returned Saturday for the Gators’ Junior Day.. It was on that return trip the 6-foot-4, 280-pound prospect committed to the Gators and he confirmed.

“I felt like I fit in and I felt like UF was my home,” Jordan said.

Jordan is considered the 77th best offensive tackle prospect, the 65th best overall prospect in the state of Florida and 707th best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Jordan chose the Gators over offers from the Georgia Bulldogs, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Ohio State Buckeyes, among others.

He becomes the Gators’ third commitment in the class of 2015.
