Sandifer selects Florida

Florida picked up two commitments a couple of weeks ago and both were from the state of Georgia. It added another one Wednesday when Brandon Sandifer announced he was a Gator…

It was Mike Horton, a versatile lineman out of Atlanta (Ga.) Lakeside on July 31. Then it was outside linebacker Adonis Thomas out of Lawrenceville (Fla.) Central Gwinnett on August 1.

On August 13, it was Brandon Sandifer, an offensive lineman out of Warner Robins (Ga.) Northside that revealed he wanted to be a Florida Gator.

”I made my decision Monday night,” said Sandifer. “It was a very hard decision because all of the schools were very good schools. I had to think about everything -- that is why it took [me] so long.”

It was Florida that the 6-foot-4, 329 pound senior announced Wednesday night was the right one for him. Sandifer selected the Gators over Alabama and South Carolina.

”It (Florida) felt the most like home and the coaches wanted me the most there. It feels great now to be committed. It is like a weight is lifted off my shoulders.”

Sandifer is a three-star offensive guard on Scout. His commitment to Florida gives the Gators 11 commits for 2015.
