The Gators are looking to take more top notch defensive tackles in the Class of 2015 and on Monday the Gators offered a big time defensive tackle. That prospect was 2015 defensive tackle Daylon Mack (6-2, 307, Gladewater, TX High) who is currently committed to another SEC program.
“Coach (Brad) Lawing was the coach from Florida that offered me on Monday night,” Mack said. “He was just telling me that he wanted me to give Florida a chance and that he knows that I’m already committed to Texas A&M but that he wants me to come visit Florida and see what they have to offer.”
Mack is from Texas but he used to find ways to watch the Gators on TV and he was a big fan of a former Florida quarterback.
“I’ve always watched Florida play on TV growing up,” Mack said. “I was a huge [Tim] Tebow fan growing up and use to watch him play when they were winning championships at Florida.”
Playing defensive tackle Mack pays close attention to team’s defenses and he likes what he sees out of the Gators defense and more importantly out of Will Muschamp.
“I know that Florida has a good defense,” Mack said. “I know that Florida is known for having a top defense every year and with Coach [Will] Muschamp being the coach at Florida I know that it’s going to continue to be one of the top defenses in the country every year.”
Despite his commitment to Texas A&M the defensive tackle has plans to get to Gainesville to see the University of Florida for himself.
“I definitely plan to visit Florida,” Mack said. “I don’t know when but I’m definitely going to find time to get down there and visit.”
Right now, Mack is still solid in his commitment to Texas A&M. However, there is still hope for the Gators. Mack wouldn’t specify which school but does have a university in mind that could have him flip his commitment.
“I’m solid to Texas A&M,” Mack said. “I’ll visit some other schools but there is only one other school that I could see myself flipping thought right now.”
