2014 DT Brown lists Gators in top 10

Florida coach Will Muschamp and his staff signed four top defensive tackles in the Class of 2013, but the Gators have their sights on another top flight defensive tackle for next year’s class.

Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Smith defensive tackle Andrew Brown is considered the top defensive tackle in the country for the Class of 2014.

On Sunday night, the 6-foot-4, 284-pound Smith released his early top 10 on Twitter, and the Gators made the cut.

β€œIn no particular order,” Brown said via Twitter. “Ohio State, Michigan, Virginia Tech, Virginia, UNC, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Alabama and Georgia Tech are my top 10.”

Florida visited Brown at his school during the last contact period, and Brown has said in the past he would visit Gainesville this summer.
