The Florida Gators recruiting class of 2018 picked up its third commitment of the week on Friday when tight end Dante Lang (6-5, 220, Boca Raton, FL. High) committed to the Gators.
The tight end impressed coaches this spring when he made the move from defensive end to tight end and performed well.
Lang also worked out in front of the Gators coaching staff on Friday night and the staff seen enough that they were ready to take a pledge from the tight end.
This spring, Lang picked up an offer from Florida after running backs coach JaJuan Seider watched him in practice.
“They said it’s rare to find a tight end like me because I can catch and block at my size,” Lang said when he was offered. “I talked to both Coach [Greg] Nord and Coach Seider about the offer.
Before the offer, Lang visited Gainesville to watch Florida’s spring game and he was impressed by the campus.
“The school is amazing to be honest, and the game was fun,” Lang said. “I like how they did their rotation on offense and a lot of guys played.”
Lang joins Kyle Pitts as tight ends in the class of 2018 and is the tenth member of the 2018 class.
GatorCountry will have much more on Lang’s commitment to Florida.
