Strickland commits to the Florida Gators on Tuesday

The Florida Gators picked up their 13th commitment on Tuesday morning when an instate prospect committed to the Gators.

Offensive lineman Adrein Strickland (6-6, 330, Lynn Haven, FL. Crawford Mosely) committed to the Gators over Maryland and others on Tuesday just a week after picking up an offer from the Gators.

“Committed to the University of Florida,” Strickland tweeted on Tuesday. “Lets Gooooo.”

Earlier this month Strickland picked up an offer from John Hevesy and quickly named the Gators his leader after talking with Florida.

“Coach Hevesy told me all the things I could do while be a Gator,” he said of his talk with Florida. “They’re my leader now.”

The offensive lineman has started to pick up some big offers as of late with Maryland offering just days before the Gators.

With Strickland now committed, the Gators have three offensive linemen committed joining George Jackson and Javonte Gardner as members of the Class of 2021. The Gators will now look to add two more guys to the class.

Strickland is the 7th instate prospect to commit to the Gators in the class of 2021 as Dan Mullen and his staff are trying to take back the state in recruiting.
