Two years after his brother Joey camped at Florida and committed to the Gators, Dade City Pasco defensive lineman Andrew Ivie was in Gainesville over the weekend getting a summer workout in with UF.
The 6-foot-1, 275-pound rising senior participated in both camp sessions Saturday.
“It went pretty well,” he said. “I like the way coach (Brad) Lawing does everything. He’s very straightforward with you. If you mess up, he lets you know and helps you fix it. It made me realize even more that Florida is the place I want to be.”
Ivie, who pledged to Florida in late May, is looking to put on more than 20 pounds so he can play defensive tackle at the next level.
Lawing advised him to stay active while in the process of adding weight so it doesn’t slow him down.
“He said I did good at camp, and he likes my motor and the way I work,” Ivie said. “He just told me to keep running while I’m in the weight room and lifting at the same time. He’s looking forward to seeing how I develop next year.”
