SEC Football News on Saturday Down South

Gators sign one on JUCO national signing day, gear up for final stretch

Florida head coach Will Muschamp announced the signing of offensive lineman Drew Sarvary on Wednesday, and he was the lone junior college signing on the first day of the open period. Sarvary had played at Florida A&M in 2012 as a true freshman, starting most of the season–including a road trip to Oklahoma in which he was quoted later as saying he felt he held his own against NFL caliber defensive linemen. Sarvary then transferred to Tyler Junior College in Texas. He now has two years of eligibility left, and will be on campus in a few weeks.

Sarvary (6-5/320) is from Tallahassee (Fla.) originally, where he played at both Leon High School and North Florida Christian (as a senior). He had been committed to Texas Tech for much of the fall before getting a last-second scholarship offer from the Gators. Sarvary was a First Team All-Southwest Junior College Football Conference selection in 2013.

“We are excited to have Drew join the Gator football program,” Muschamp said Wednesday.

Now the Gator coaching staff will gear its efforts for the recruiting stretch run. Priorities? Somehow hold on to wavering running back Dalvin Cook, and somehow get California native Adoree Jackson and Texas native Jamal Adams to pick Florida over USC and LSU respectively.
