Tyson's Take: DE Jordan Sherit 

June, 25, 2012
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- With 18 verbal commitments and just over seven months until signing day, the Gators have filled about 75 percent of their recruiting class. Over the next two weeks, GatorNation will take a look at some uncommitted prospects who could end up in the Florida Gators' recruiting class. Some of them are highly rated and some might surprise you. Next up is defensive end Jordan Sherit (Tampa, Fla./Hillsborough).

Why he could end up in Florida's class

Tom Hauck for ESPN.comDefensive end Jordan Sherit is a four-star prospect ranked No. 254 in the ESPN 300.
Sherit has visited Gainesville three times since the spring football game and he admits distance could play a factor in his college decision. Florida's depth at defensive end is not very good, and with his athletic ability, the 6-foot-4, 238-pound Sherit could be in a position to earn early playing time if he chose the Gators. The proximity to home combined with his fondness for the Florida coaching staff could be enough to convince the four-star defensive end to pick UF.
