The Florida Gators recruiting class of 2018 picked up its second commitment of the week on Thursday when tight end Kyle Pitts (6-5, 235, Warminster, PA. Archbishop Wood) announced his decision to Florida.

The tight end performed strongly out in the Opening but before he went to Oregon, he visited Gainesville with his mom.
Pitts wanted to meet the coaching staff in person and it was a successful visit according to the tight end.
“It was a good visit,” Pitts said. “I like all of those guys and the family atmosphere down there was great. It was important to meet everyone.
The Gators were looking for a tight end to be a threat in both the passing game and running game and that’s exactly what they found in Pitts.
Pitts has a reported forty time of 4.70 and showed off his ability to catch the ball while out in Oregon at the Opening.
Pitts is the first tight end to commit in the class and is the ninth member of the 2018 class.
Running backs coach JaJuan Seider and director of player personnel Drew Hughes both recruited Pitts hard and made the Gators the team to beat.
GatorCountry will have much more on Pitts commitment to Florida.
