Bostwick commits and signs with Florida

The need for defensive tackles in the Class of 2013 was huge and on National Signing Day the Gators picked up a top defensive tackle.

On Wednesday morning Port St. Lucie (Fla.) St. Lucie West Centennial defensive tackle Jay-nard Bostwick committed to Florida over Miami and Alabama.

The 6-foot-4, 291-pound Bostwick officially visited Florida this past weekend with his parents and the visit went great.

It has long been known that the Bostwick family didn’t want Jay-nard at Miami and their relationship with the Gators coaching staff was great.

Bostwick joins Caleb Brantley and Darious Cummings as defensive tackles in the Class of 2013 for Florida.
