OL Benjamin Knox gives Florida pledge

Florida picked up six commitments during their first junior day last year and have started off this year with another hot start.

The Gators already picked up one commitment on Saturday and have added their second of the day with offensive lineman Benjamin Knox.

Deland (Fla.) High offensive lineman Benjamin Knox committed to the Florida Gators while visiting this Saturday.

“Yes sir I committed,” Benjamin Knox told GatorCountry.com earlier this morning.

The 6-foot-5, 265-pound offensive lineman Knox picked up his Florida offer Saturday and wasted no time in committing.

‘Florida is close to home,” Knox said. “And the school is great so I committed.”

Knox joins Travaris Dorsey, Will Grier, Duke Dawson and Ryeshene Bronson in the Gator’s 2014 class. Earlier today, 2014 target Travonte Valentine informed Florida he has de-committed from the Gators.
