Fresh off an official visit, Alabama offensive line transfer Damieon George Jr. commits to the Florida Gators.
The 6-6, 339-pound offensive tackle took to social media to announce his decision.
“Committed,” George said on Instagram and Twitter.
George was originally a member of the 2020 recruiting class, playing high school ball at North Shore in Houston, Texas.
As a true freshman, George played in three games for the Tide (Kentucky, LSU, Arkansas), totaling 32 snaps at right tackle.
In 2021, George played in 12 games and made three starts. His first career start was against New Mexico State, where he helped the Tide total 247 rushing yards and 340 pass yards. He graded out at 97 percent on assignments with one knockdown block.
His 2nd career start and first in the SEC came against the Arkansas Razorbacks where he blocked for 671 yards of total offense and matched his season high with two knockdown blocks.
George allowed three sacks, one hit, four hurries, and eight pressures in 268 snaps at right tackle. His offensive grade of 65.0 lands him in the middle of the pack for Alabama offensive lineman in 2021.
In 2022, the Texas native saw action in two games, totaling offensive snaps 20 snaps against Utah State.
George entered the transfer portal on November 28th, two days after Alabama’s last regular season game against Auburn.
Billy Napier has been successful in trying to rebuild the offensive line after two surprising transfers from starters Ethan White and Michael Tarquin. George becomes the 2nd addition along the front five for the Gators, joining Baylor guard Micah Mazzccua this offseason.
George is likely the favorite to start at right tackle for the Gators in 2023. He has two years of eligibility remaining.
