Gators add OL Trenton Brown
By Derek Tyson
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Massive offensive lineman Trenton Brown (Albany, Ga./Georgia Military College) verbally committed to play for Florida early Sunday morning. Brown, a former Georgia commit, chose Florida over Oklahoma and Florida State.
The 6-foot-8, 340-pound tackle prospect announced his decision via his twitter handle @512_ItsNMe: "Gator Chompin' #GatorNation join me Oh and add me to that #1 recruiting class." Brown later confirmed to RecruitingNation writer Kipp Adams via text message that he had committed.
Brown originally set a decision date for Dec. 19, but decided to go ahead and make his pledge public now and since he is at a prep school, he will be able to sign with Florida on the 19th and enroll at UF in January.
With the addition of Brown, the Gators now have four offensive linemen committed including Cam Dillard (Canton, Mich./Canton), Octavius Jackson (Moultrie, Ga./Colquitt Co.) and former Nebraska transfer Tyler Moore (Clearwater, Fla./Countryside).
The Gators have 23 total commitments and the No. 1-ranked recruiting class in the country.
