Four-Star Breyon Gaddy and his brother pick up offer from Florida

The Gaddy brothers continue to pique interest from college programs across the country. Florida was the latest to offer both Breyon and Brandon Gaddy on Tuesday. Four-star defensive tackle, Breyon Gaddy, discusses the new offer and where things stand.

The offers continue to pile up for Breyon Gaddy. On Tuesday Florida was the 29th school to offer the four-star defensive tackle. 

"It's overwhelming," said Gaddy about the attention. "It's different coaches wanting me to come to their schools and wanting me to be part of their program. They text me every day...I just go with the flow and then when at that time comes I will make that decision on where I am going next."

The Gators join Tennessee, Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Michigan and Virginia Tech in the fight to land the Bishop Sullivan Catholic standout. Gaddy admits that he does not know much about UF at this time. 

"I don't really watch football, I just play it," he said. 

Florida defensive line coach Chris Rumph was the one to offer Gaddy. 

"When he came here he didn't know much about me. He was going to look at my film with all the coaches and he was gong to see how I play," he said."Then I asked him if he saw my highlights and he said yes and they would like to offer me.  I was very happy."

Rumph said "I was very aggressive after watching my film," he added. 

The Florida assistant was busy on Tuesday, because not only did he offer Breyon, he also offered Breyon's brother, Brandon Gaddy

"Me and my brother, we already know we are going to play with each other," said Breyon Gaddy.  "If they don't offer both of us then we aren't going there. It's going to me and him or neither one of us." 

At the list of schools that have offered the brothers include: Tennessee, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech, USC, NC State and North Carolina. 

The No. 15 defensive tackle is planning to take several trips with his brother. 

"I am taking a lot of visits this summer. I want to get back to Tennessee. I wan to go to Florida, Florida State, plenty of schools," he said. "I just had a ball when I went there (to Tennessee), want to go to Florida and Florida State. I've never been and it's in Florida so I want to go there." 

Currently the Vols are standing out to the brothers. 

"Tennessee, they are telling me that if I go there, and I work hard and I have a good offseason, I can come in and get my time in the field." 

Although playing with his brother is important to him, there are several factors he is taking into consideration; but playing time is not necessarily number one. 

"I know playing time is not that important because I have to go up there with the players that are already there and compete. I know I am gong to play because thats who I am, but it's not going to matter too much with me," he said. "I like school. School means a lot to me. It has to have a football atmosphere. It's gong to be fun but hard at the same time." 

So how are the Gaddy brothers going to tackle the decision process to make sure both voices are heard? 

"He is going to pick the ten schools that he wants, and I am going to pick the ten schools that I want," he explained. "Then when we are done with all our visits, we are going to break that down to ten schools. Then in the middle of the season, we are going to break it down to five-he is going to break it down to the five he likes and then me the five I like. Our last game of our senior year, we are both going to make our decision."

But first both Gaddy brothers are going to make sure their senior season is one they will remember. 

"With all the new players and the great coaches coming in, I feel like we are gong to have a good team and a good season this year. We are going to compete for a championship."
