Gators Land TE/DE!

[MEDIA:32875]The Gators landed one of the top players from Florida's panhandle in DE/TE DJ Norris. Norris committed to the University of Florida on his official visit this weekend. That fills two needs for Ron Zook and his staff.

The Florida Gators picked up some much needed help at tight end and defensive end with the commitment of DJ Norris. Norris, from Pace, Florida, plays both positions.

"I committed to Florida and I just got back from the trip," said Norris. "I loved the city, campus, academics, football program, everything. The bottom line is that I want to win some rings and that's going to happen at Florida with Ron Zook. The need tight ends and defensive ends. For now, Florida wants me to play defense. I knew if I had a good visit I would commit. Florida just felt right. And I had a great time."

Norris, 6-3 and 245 pounds, committed to the Gators over LSU, Tennessee, FSU and Georgia Tech. This season, he was named the region's most valuable player on defense. He had 65 tackles and 7.5 sacks. He also played half the season at tight end and the other half at offensive tackle.
