Gator gloves fit for Gerald Willis

Just two days after the Gators received bad news by having Dalvin Cook flip to Florida State the Gators received good news at the Under Armour All-American game.

Florida picked up its 19th commitment when defensive end Gerald Willis III (6-4, 247, New Orleans, LA Edna Karr) committed to Florida over the home-state LSU Tigers.

Willis is the younger brother of Alabama safety Landon Collins who Willis said set an example for him by leaving the state.

The Louisiana native visited Florida during the season and came away very impressed by what he saw from the Gators’ defense as well as seeing the need for pass rushers at Florida.

Willis is the fourth defensive linemen to commit to Florida and the third defensive end joining Justus Reed and Taven Bryan.

Stay tuned to GatorCountry for more on this commitment.
