Issiah Walker commits to the Florida Gators over Florida State

The Florida Gators picked up a big commitment before Saturday’s big game against Auburn in the Swamp.

Offensive lineman Issiah Walker (6-4, 309, Miami, FL. Norland) committed to Florida over Florida State and others on Saturday after he left campus.

“I have to committed to Florida,” Walker said. “Two-bits, four-bits, six-bits, a dollar. All for the Gators. Stand up and holler. Go Gators!”

Walker has been frequent visitor to Gainesville since last year and he says the message from the coaching staff has been simple and to the point.

“They say that they want me to be a Gator,” Walker said on the message from the coaches. “They say I would fit right in with the offense and that they love my athleticism.”

The offensive lineman has also said his relationship with the coaching staff at Florida is the best among the school recruiting him.

“My relationship with the staff is great, I have great bond with them,” Walker said on his relationship with the coaching staff. “I’m close to Coach Johnson, Coach Mullen, Coach Hevesy and Coach Hova.”

Walker is the 19th commitment in the class of 2020 and the fourth offensive line commit joining Richie Leonard, Gerald Mincey and Jovens Janvier as commits in the class.

The Gators will now look to add one more offensive tackle to the class to finish up their offensive line class and one of their top targets Marcus Dumervil is on his official visit to Gainesville this weekend.
