Sandifer is a Florida Gator

Wednesday night was a big night for the Florida Gators as they picked up commitment number 11 when offensive lineman Brandon Sandifer (6-3, 332, Warner Robins, GA Northside) committed to the University of Florida.

“I’m proud to say that next year I will be playing at the University of Florida #GatorNation,” Sandifer said via Twitter.

Sandifer had a final three of Florida, South Carolina and Alabama but on Wednesday morning he informed Florida Gator Head Coach Will Muschamp that he wanted to be a Gator.

This summer Sandifer made two visits to Florida, one of which he camped with offensive line coach [Mike] Summers and that was a relationship that Sandifer liked.

“I like Coach Summers, he’s a great coach,” Sandifer said. “I like his laid back approach. I worked out with him this summer during camp and he taught me a lot of things to help me get better on the field.”

Sandifer joins offensive lineman George Brown and Tyler Jordan on the line and jumbo lineman Michael Horton could also end up at guard with Sandifer.

Both Sandifer and Jordan are projected to play inside at Florida while Brown is projected to be a tackle.

With the commitment of Sandifer the Gators will still and try to sign two to three more offensive linemen with the focus of getting two more tackles and another guard.
