Gators Add Big Time Tight End

The Florida Gators are facing a numbers crunch at tight end and after coming up one short in 2009, they landed themselves a good one from the class of 2010. Tampa (FL) Blake tight end Michael McFarland committed a while ago and made it official Monday when he told Scout.com he was going to be a Gator.

At 6-6 and 230 pounds, McFarland runs a 4.7 and is the prototype prospect Florida is looking for in a pass catching tight end.

"I feel that family connection not only with the players but the staff as well," he said. "It's just crazy. When I was there for junior day it was amazing and I love it and I want to be a Gator. The academics are amazing and I can't wait to get started and I am a Gator. I looked up on the Internet the sports medicine program that they have and that's awesome. I actually committed in February but now am ready to tell the world because I have no doubt in my mind I am going there."

Michael McFarland is the seventh Gator commitment for the class of 2010, one that continues to grow quickly. We will have more with Michael on his decision shortly.
