ESPN's No. 1 OT Tunsil has UF in top five


One of the most anticipated arrivals for Sunday's NFTC was that of the nation's top-rated offensive lineman, Laremy Tunsil (Lake City, Fla./Columbia).

Tunsil, the No. 3 overall prospect in the ESPN 150, has kept his recruitment close to the vest but was willing to reveal his top five Sunday.

"My top five as it stands is Oklahoma, Georgia, Florida, LSU and Alabama," Tunsil said. "I like their playbooks, the offense will allow me to pull and have my hand in the ground.

"I've gotten to know the coaching staffs and build close relationships with them."

Tunsil admits that it's been hard to keep a low profile given his status as a top prospect.

"It's been crazy to be honest," Tunsil said. "Everyone is coming at me from different directions and I'm generally a quiet person."

Tunsil said he did not attend any spring games and doesn't have plans to take unofficial visits over the summer but he will attend The Opening for a second straight year.

With spring football around the corner, Tunsil has seen improvement in his game but also areas that he will continue to work on.

"I've worked on my strength and I'm up to 295 pounds now," Tunsil added. "I'm going to be working on getting my pad level correct on my blocking.

"I need to work a little more on a few things as you saw today, I have some things I need to tighten up."

Tunsil is planning an announcement on signing day and will most likely take his officials after his senior season.

"I will visit all of my top five schools but I might take another official instead of Florida since they are so close to home," Tunsil said. "There are other schools coming after me hard like Ole Miss. They have been relentless but I don't know if they are a fit."
