Gators land first commitment in Dan Mullen era


Florida has landed its first commitment in the Dan Mullen era.

Chris Bleich, a 6-foot-6 offensive lineman in the 2018 class out of Wyoming Valley West in Plymouth, Pennsylvania, announced via his Twitter account his intention to flip to Florida from UCLA.

Bleich committed to UCLA and former coach Jim Mora on June 19, but Mora’s dismissal subsequently re-opened his recruitment.

With Bleich’s verbal commitment, which is non-binding until he signs a national letter of intent, the Gators have 16 commitments in the 2018 class.


  1. it shouldn’t matter who the first guy signed was, but it can end up mattering. I remember spurriers first name was terry dean, and I remember coach Donovan signing teddy dupay.
    good luck, hope this guy is as good as those guys (I know both had their struggles, but terry dean came back after that senior year collapse to beat Georgia, and teddy dupay I just think is great, maybe a bad something sometime, so what).
