Gators 2018 class lands verbal commitment from 4* OL Richard Gouraige


Florida’s 2018 class landed a second offensive lineman Friday in Richard Gouraige, a four-star prospect out of Cambridge Christian School in Tampa.

Gators coach Jim McElwain confirmed Gouraige’s commitment, which was announced in a video by SEC Country.

A 6-foot-5, 270-pounder, Gouraige narrowed his college decision to Florida and Clemson University earlier in the week before ultimately giving UF his verbal commitment.

With Gouraige’s commitment, which is non-binding until he signs a national letter of intent, the Gators have 18 commits in the 2018 class.


  1. Now, young man, go and speak with every great Floridian, high school football player, like yourself, who may be going out of state, and then encourage them to BE GATORS also! We’re DUE in the ORANGE & BLUE! And… ”IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME!” ~Field of Dreams. -Go Gators!

  2. What the Gators really need to do is to recruit, or otherwise add, a sturdy, intelligent, and athletic dog to the Gator football roster. This is especially true since the Gator offensive brain trust are apparently already on record as stating that they could teach their dog to play QB!

    We certainly don’t presently have anyone of the homo sapiens species on our team to do that…to wit – play winning SEC football at the QB position!
