    2018 Gator Commitment.
    TE Dante Lang 6-5 220 of Boca Raton High School. Boca Raton, Florida.

    Lang has already picked up double-digit offers but he says getting one from the Gators was a big one.
    “It means a lot, to be honest,” he said of the offer means to him. “Florida is just one of my favorite schools and I was excited to get the offer.”

    Boca Raton 2018 athlete Dante Lang received an offer from the Florida Gators and Iowa State, according to Bobcats coach Eric Davis. Atlantic 2020 wide receiver Aydin Henningham also received a Gators and Tennessee Volunteers offer, and the Volunteers also offered American Heritage 2019 wide receiver John Dunmore; Henningham and Dunmore announced their offers on their Twitter accounts.
    Lang, who is No. 7 on the Post’s Big Board, also has offers from Arkansas, Georgia, Ole Miss and more. He is rated a three-star prospect at defensive end, where he has primarily been recruited. But Florida’s offer is for Lang to play tight end, where he has been working this spring. Lang had 70 tackles and 20 sacks as a defensive end last year.

    “He’s getting a lot of offers at tight end,” Boca Raton coach Eric Davis said Tuesday. “I asked one of the SEC coaches, why all of a sudden — and he said, ‘Coach, there’s not many kids that are 6-5 who can run like him.’”[/B]

    Are we recruiting him as a TE or a DE?

    That is a nice pair of TEs we just picked up. Big targets that can move.

    I'll take a chance on a big South Florida kid. May go the Tevin Westbrook route, but worth a shot.

    Curious if his rating jumps as a TE since he's been playing mostly DE.

    Nice to have bookend TEs we need with lack of depth at position and others graduating soon. Kid might make a great DE as well. Good athlete

    Apparently, Seider really helped seal the deal. I think he is going to prove to be a fantastic recruiter.

    With the recent offensive recruiting explosion and if we have an offense this year, I wonder if Lang's versatility lets us take another TE. I really like Pitts and and Lang is crazy athletic, but neither has done much as an in-line blocker. I wouldn't be surprised if Lang's best spot ends of being DE so I wonder if that allows us to talk to a guy like Luke Ford, Brevin, etc if they get interested. Keep in mind that there is a small possibility we go into 2018 with one solid TE (Gamble).

    IMO hes already proven himself at his prior stints. Hes a south florida kid that has recruited in the heart of Louisiana, NC, MS, the Panhandle, etc....while he was at Marshall and West Virginia and hell continue to kill it for us.

    As we we all know he was National Offensive Player of the Year at FAMU and a flat out beast in high school down here in S Florida that is paying huge dividends for us. I was thrilled he became a Gator.
