Notable: An early enrollee who committed to Florida in December of 2012 after
originally being committed to South Carolina. Recorded 50 tackles with 23 for a loss,
and four sacks in only six games before tearing his ACL, cutting his senior season
short. Also scored five touchdowns as a tight end. Was a part of a program that won
three-straight AA Division 4 state championships. Ranked the nation’s 22 nd best
inside linebacker prospect by Rivals. Selected to the Under Armour All-American
Game, but did not play due to injury.
Quotable: “(My family) all graduated from South Carolina, but they wanted me to go
where I was most comfortable and where I felt I had the best opportunity to play.
They were very supportive of my decision and the de-commitment (from South
Carolina). I’m thankful for all of them, because they’ve put up with it well.” – Matt
