Wednesday is starting off great for the Florida Gators as linebacker Vosean Jospeh (6-1, 210, Miami, FL Norland) has committed to Florida after picking up an offer from the Gators on Tuesday.
“I just committed to Florida,” Joseph said. “Honestly I thought about it and I really do like the school and when I went to the camp I really liked it and the atmosphere was great. My parents also think it’s a good fit for me.”
Another big reason for Joseph’s commitment to Florida was because of linebacker’s coach Randy Shannon and also because of the relationship Shannon has with one of Joseph’s former teammates who is now a Gators signee.
“Coach Shannon was a big reason that I committed,” Joseph said. “My teammate Rayshad Jackson likes him a lot and said it was a big reason that he signed with Florida so if he likes him than I know I will like him.”
The Norland linebacker is no stranger to Florida’s history of having good defensive players as Joseph has done his research.
““I know a lot about Florida already, I know they have a good football program and they are known for the academics there,” Joseph said. “I know that Florida usually has a lot of good defensive players on the team.”
Joseph is the second commitment for Florida in the class of 2016 and he joins receiver Rick Wells — who committed to Florida in January.
With the pickup of Joseph the Gators gain the first of what they hope is four-man linebacker class due to the fact the Gators only signed one linebacker in the class of 2015 after not signing a linebacker in the class of 2014.
