Just one short day after verbally committing to Vanderbilt, three-star offensive tackle Andrew Mike (Tuscon, Ariz./Sabino) has switched his commitment to Florida and will sign with the Gators on national signing day.

The news was first reported by the Arizona Daily Star. His head coach, Jay Campos, told the Star Mike received a "full-court press" by the Gators coaching staff.

"He was a little bummed out to tell the Vanderbilt coaches but they understood,” Campos told the Daily Star. "He's very excited and is sure he made the right decision.”

With the proper development, Mike has a chance to develop into a solid contributor on the next level.

“Mike needs to keep physically developing but shows flashes of good ability to get the job done,” his Recruiting Nation scouting report reads. “With some work he could offer multi-position versatility along the O-line."

With Mike’s commitment, the Gators now have 22 commitments, including 12 ranked in the ESPN 300.
