UF Picks Up OL

[MEDIA:32875]Florida needs helps in the trenches despite bringing in JUCO help in December. This high school standout OL committed to the Gators today.

Offensive line prospect Steven Rissler was planning to visit Florida this weekend but come home uncommitted. He wanted to give South Florida a chance when it came to his ultimate decision. But things changed once he was in Gainesville.

"Everything went perfectly," said Rissler. "I told coach Zook that I am committed to them. It was really a no brainer... I loved it that much."

Rissler, from Sarasota (Fla.) Rivervew High School, is now 6-3 and 315 pounds. He will play guard or center for the Gators.

Coach (Ron) Zook, (Joe) Wickline (OL Coach) and the other coaches are real pros and I like the fact that they are all working so hard towards winning a national championship.

"I know with Florida, I can't go wrong. They have great facilities and the type of football tradition I have always been looking for. Florida is just a great situation for me."
