With the recent news of JUCO defensive tackle Jarran Reed not being to enroll at Florida for the 2013 season and his recruitment being opened back up the Gators are looking for defensive tackles.
On Friday the Gators handed out an offer to Fort Scott (KS.) Fort Scott Community College defensive tackle Abu Lamin.
“Florida offered me on Friday. It’s amazing and crazy to get an offer from them. I’m excited and at a loss for words.,” Lamin said. “Coach (Will) Muschamp and coach (Brad) Lawing both offered me during a conversation. They basically told me that I would be a great fit for their defensive line at Florida and that I look great on film and I could be a big contributor on their defense.”
The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Lamin has yet to visit Florida but he knows a few things about Florida and defensive line coach Brad Lawing.
“I know Florida has a good defense and they play hard,” Lamin said. “They always have good players that come out of there and into the league. I just figured out that coach Lawing is from South Carolina and he has coached a lot of good players. I like that coach Muschamp was in the league for a little bit and how he is real passionate about the game.”
With Lamin being a JUCO player he is eligible to start taking official visits and he knows one school that will get one and maybe soon.
“I’m trying to set up my official to Florida for June 14-16th,” Lamin said. “I’m really high on Florida because there Florida and when you play for them you play to win championships and you get a shot at the league. I don’t have any leaders but Florida is up with the rest of the schools but Florida is in my top 5 range.”
