Lucky No. 13 for the Gators

Chase Hounshell and his family recently visited the University of Florida and have decided they have seen enough. The 6-6, 265-pound offensive lineman checks in from Mentor (OH) Lake Catholic. Hounshell becomes the 13th prospect in the class of 2011 to make a verbal pledge to the Gators and head coach Urban Meyer.

"My coach called Coach Addazio and they talked for a little bit and then he put me on the phone with Coach Addazio," Chase Hounshell said. "He told me they were offering me a full ride and they were pumped about me. Coach Addazio asked if I was ready to be a Gator and I said, 'heck yea!' I told them I was ready and I won't me making any calls to other schools or coaches and I am 100 percent committed to the University of Florida."

Boston College, Iowa, Michigan State, UCF and Wisconsin are a few of the teams that have extended written offers.
