Gators sign surprise JUCO lineman

NEW: Follow on facebook -

Florida has had several transfers leave the program in the last week, and that has opened up the possibility of some late season additions to the 2014 class.

One such addition came Wednesday–the first day of junior college national signing period–when OL Drew Sarvary of Tyler Junior College in Texas signed a letter of intent with the Gators. He was just offered a scholarship Tuesday. He is 6-foot-6, 310 pounds and was a first-team all conference member in Texas.

Sarvary’s other offers were from East Carolina, Memphis, MIddle Tennessee, North Texas, South Florida and Texas Tech. He is rated a three-star prospect in the composite ranking, and rated the No. 20 JUCO offensive tackle in the nation. He is originally from Tallahassee (Fla.), and played at storied Leon High School.

The Florida native initially signed with FCS program Florida A&M out of high school, and even played as a freshman against Oklahoma–and he felt he could play against high level BCS teams because of that game. So he transferred to Tyler to see where it took him.

Sarvary is the sixth offensive lineman to come aboard with the Gators. They landed blue-chipper David Sharpe last week, and also have four other three-star prospects on board.
