Holley flips to Florida

Will Muschamp has his flipper in full force again this week as the Florida Gators have flipped another commitment, this time from a Big 10 ten school. Defensive tackle Thomas Holley (6-4, 299 Brooklyn, NY Abraham Lincoln) flipped his commitment on Wednesday from Penn State to Florida, the team that finished runner-up when he made his initial commitment in December.

Holley visited the Gators twice last year but ultimately decided to play for Penn State and defensive line coach Larry Johnson but all of that came crashing down when both Johnson and Bill O’Brien left Penn State.

Florida commit Khairi Clark was one of Florida’s main recruiters for Holley as the New York prospect told GC that Clark texted him every day about flipping to Florida.

“Khairi recruited me a little bit saying with him at the nose and me at the three-technique we can dominate other O-lines and it’s good,” Holley said.

With the commitment of Holley the Gators now have 21 commitments in the Class of 2014 and now five defensive linemen which includes two defensive tackles Clark and Holley.
