Rising OLB/DE David Reese commits to Florida’s 2018 class


Florida’s 2018 class landed a verbal commitment Saturday from a highly regarded OLB/DE prospect out of Vero Beach High.

David Reese, the No. 31-ranked outside linebacker prospect in the 2018 class by 247Sports, announced his commitment to the Gators and coach Jim McElwain via his Twitter account.

McElwain confirmed Reese’s commitment on Twitter.

A three-star prospect by 247Sports’ composite, Reese recently picked up a scholarship offer from the Crimson Tide after camping at the University of Alabama. Reese, however, returned to Gainesville and took an unofficial visit Thursday to UF.

With Reese’s commitment, which is non-binding until he signs a letter of intent, the Gators have 15 commits in the 2018 class.
