The Florida Gators flipped a big commitment on National Signing Day away from the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Defensive end Khris Bogle (6-3, 212, Fort Lauderdale, FL. Cardinal Gibbons) flipped from Alabama and committed to the Florida Gators on National Signing day on Wednesday.
“I’m going to the University of Florida,” Bogle said on Wednesday during his signing ceremony.
Bogle who visited Florida two weeks ago has long been a priority for the Gators and he sited early playing time as a big reason he picked the Gators.
Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham played a big role in Bogle’s recruitment even through the defensive line coaching change that saw Sal Sunseri leave for Alabama.
“Me and Coach Grantham have the same idea in mind,” Bogle said on the coach he bonded with . “Even talking with Coach Mullen is the same thing with me coming in here and playing early and trying to get sacks. Just the key stuff.”
When Bogle visited Gainesville earlier this year he loved the way everyone treated him at Florida and that was a big reason he choose the Gators.
“The people around here, every time I come back they’re welcoming,” Bogle said on what he likes about Florida. “Florida is close to home but not too far from home.
Bogle has yet to sign his letter of intent but that’s expected to be sign soon and he will become an official member of the Florida Gators class of 2019.
