Silberman is Solid

Orange Park (FL) Fleming Island star Ian Silberman is a four-star prospect and the No. 16 ranked offensive tackle in the nation. At 6-6 and 280-pounds, Silberman has as much upside as any offensive lineman in the country. He is massive and has the frame that will easily carry him into the 305-320 pound range before all is said and done.

A current commitment to the Florida Gators, Urban Meyer doesn't have to worry about Ian Silberman's loyalty to the Gators..

"Spring practice was real good," he said. "I am still getting used to playing the left tackle position after playing right tackle for three years. Also, I have been playing some at defensive end which I have not played since I was on the junior varsity team."

Silberman isn't sure which, if any, camps or combines he will attend over the summer. He will attend Friday Night Lights, however, and continues to lead by example for his teammates.

When asked which team he always wanted to be a part of he responded with "Florida, Florida, Florida, Florida, Florida and Florida...did I mention Florida?"

If there was ever any doubt about his intentions, Silberman said he can't become part of the Gators fast enough.

"I am taking online courses now so I can graduate early and become a full-time student and Gator as soon as I can."
