Florida football’s class of 2023 continues to gain momentum following a quiet start to coach Billy Napier’s first full class with the program. 

UF landed its fourth commitment in as many weeks Monday with the addition of Bryce Lovett, a 6-foot-5, 330-pound offensive tackle prospect out of Rockledge (Fla.).

Lovett, whose verbal commitment occurred on his birthday, pledged to the Gators over offers from Missouri, Iowa State and Louisville.

Gators now have five commitments for 2023 class

In a message posted to his Twitter account, Lovett credited his family, friends and the Rockledge High coaching staff.

"Honestly, I wanted to get out of Florida for college," he told Brian McCallum at Florida Today, "but it's hard to pass up the opportunity, because I just felt at home there."

Lovett made the decision because of "the new coaching staff. Everything they do is for the players, so I wanted to be a part of that."

Lovett’s commitment gives the Gators five commitments in the Class of 2023, which is currently ranked No. 30 nationally by 247Sports, and he’s the second offensive lineman to verbally pledge to Florida within a 10-day span.

IMG Academy offensive lineman Knijeah Harris, the No. 18 interior offensive line prospect in the current recruiting class, committed to UF back on May 7.
