Michael Tarquin

School: North Marion

Hometown: Citra, FL.

Height: 6-5

Weight: 290

Position: offensive line

Rivals Ranking: 4-star

Recruited by:  John Hevesy/Dan Mullen

Enrollment date: January of 2019

Notable: Tarquin has always has interest in the Gators but the prior coaching staff didn’t show a ton of interest and that turned Tarquin off. Dan Mullen and John Hevesy really built a relationship with Tarquin and got him to flip from Miami in December.

Quotable:“I think very highly of them now,” he said of his impressions of the staff after Monday. “I kind of turned away from Florida because of the former staff but I’m very glad that I opened up to the University of Florida again. I like Coach Mullen and Coach Hevesy a lot and think very highly of them.”
