Touted DT commits to Florida

GAINESVILLE -- Five-star defensive line recruit Omar Hunter committed to the University of Florida on Tuesday. This next sentence pretty much sums up how athletically gifted the kid is. He stands 6 feet and two inches tall, weighs 318 pounds and can dunk a basketball.

          Yes, Hunter's commitment was a slam dunk indeed for the Gators. Rated as one of the best defensive tackle recruits in the Southeast, Hunter said on Tuesday that he would have committed to Georgia but the Bulldogs did not have a scholarship available for him. Hunter had eight sacks his senior season for Buford (Ga.) High.

          "It was bad timing, "Hunter said. "[Georgia] was already full on commitments."

Hunter is the 22nd commitment of the class of 2008 for the Gators. Players can begin signing national letters of intent on Feb. 6. Until then, commitments are non-binding. Hunter originally committed to Notre Dame but changed his mind four weeks ago after an all-star game in Orlando.

          "[Florida] never let off during the recruiting process even when I was committed Notre Dame," Hunter said.

ahhhhh life is good ... How 'bout U ?

Hey we'll take him even if he wanted to go to Georgia. He has 3 or 4 years to fall in love with the gator nation, which i think is more than enough time. I think now we have a well rounded defensive oriented recruiting class. With every day that passes i feel more comfortable with our team for next year.

2008 is gonna be our year again !!!!

You fagbags need to stop sucking Meyer's D and realize that the only reason players like Tebow and Harvin went there is because Meyer gave their boyfriends scholarships too. But still with cheating you can't win a bowl game against the Big 10.

Can't beat the Big Ten??? Is this guy that ignorant? The "mighty" and overrated OSU for the title last year, Iowa a couple years ago...jealousy...gotta love it!
