Two days after losing sophomore TE Gerald Christian in a transfer, the Gators picked up a commitment from Land O’ Lakes prospect Kent Taylor. Taylor is ranked the No. 1 tight end in America by Rivals and Scout.

Rivals.com reported that Taylor visited Penn State in December and plans to visit Alabama for the LSU game next month. He has offers from those schools and a long list of others.
