The first weekend of the 2018 season has already paid dividends for Florida on the recruiting trail.
William Harrod, a 6-foot-5, 305-pound offensive lineman out of National Christian Academy in Fort Washington, Maryland, verbally committed to Florida’s 2019 class after taking an official visit to UF on Saturday.

Harrod, who holds offers from the likes of North Carolina, Tennessee and Florida State, was trending in favor of Michigan prior to last week before a late push from UF offensive line coach John Hevesy brought the four-star prospect on board.
Harrod is ranked the No. 31 offensive lineman in the 2019 class by the 247Sports composite ranking.
With Harrod’s commitment, which is non-binding until he signs a letter of intent, the Gators have 14 commits in the 2019 class.
