The last weekends have been huge for the Florida Gators on the recruiting front and that continued on Friday when the Gators picked up commitment number eight from athlete Tyrek Tisdale (6-0, 200, Orlando, FL Oak Ridge) who was on campus Friday.
“I just committed to Florida,” Tisdale told GatorCountry.com
Tisdale has now been on the Gainesville campus three straight weekends and has watched Florida go through two practices and the first practice he saw he was impressed by the chemistry of the staff.
“They had good chemistry out at practice between everyone, “Tisdale said. “There was good chemistry between the new coaches and the players so it was good to see that. Everyone was just getting along out there nicely.”
After watching the Gators practice last weekend Tisdale really felt like he was a good fit for what Jim McElwain is trying to run on offense.
“I loved the NFL based offense because it gets you ready for the next level,” Tisdale said. “They run a lot of NFL material and it is not college spread because you’re not going to run that in the NFL. That kind of offense really helps in the NFL and the scouts like that. I can see myself playing in that offense.”
Another big reason for Tisdale’s commitment was because his high school coach Elijah Williams is a former Gator himself and Tisdale felt blessed to be able to follow in Williams’ footsteps.
Tisdale is the eighth commitment to Florida joining receivers Isaiah Johnson and Rick Wells on the offensive side of the ball.
