Weight: 300

Position: offensive lineman

247 Ranking: 4-star

Recruited by: Rob Sale and Darnell Stapleton

Notable: Kearney was one of the Gators top offensive line targets from the time Napier arrived in Gainesville and at first they lost him to Florida State but the Gators continued to work on Kearney and he flipped from the Noles in November.

Quotable: “It’s no hard feelings towards the other program but I just feel like Florida had more to offer to me,” Kearney said on what led him to flip after the visits. “I feel like all-around as a program they have a lot going for them and Coach Napier is turning the program around with the number of recruits he has coming in that are all like-minded. Everybody has the same mindset and the whole program is the best.”
