Notable: Runs the 40-yard dash in 4.8 seconds. As a senior, Ivie recorded 89 total tackles, including 56 solo tackles and 12 sacks. Committed to Florida on June 16, 2012. Chose Florida over Florida State, Ole Miss, Missouri, Tennessee and others. Ranked as the 198th best player in the country by Rivals.com. Enrolled early at Florida and will be able to join the team for spring practices.

Quotable: “It’s a big benefit having six months ahead of everyone in the weight room and with school work. Coach (Bryant) Young said it’s one thing that will help me have the chance to play early, because I can learn the playbook and get stronger by going through spring ball. It was a tough decision for me, because I leave half way through my senior year.” — Ivie told GatorCountry.com.
