Will Norman commits to the Florida Gators

The Florida Gators picked up their 19th commitment of the 2023 class and second commitment of the day on the defensive line.

Defensive lineman Will Norman (6-4, 299, Bradenton, FL. IMG)

committed to Florida over Tennessee and Texas A&M and many others on Saturday.

“My home away from home… 1000% committed,” Norman tweeted.

Norman has known defensive line coach Sean Spencer for years and the coach has explained to Norman just how he will fit into the Gators defense.

“Definitely knowing that I’m a big guy but I’m athletic so just knowing they will have me slanting,” Norman said on how his meetings with the staff went. “They will have me in different run games, it’s eye-opening, I don’t want to be one of those defensive linemen that’s just full blow nose guard, I want to move around.”

The IMG prospect was on campus for his official in June and it was during that trip that he got to see what being a Gator was like.

“It’s definitely more of a family atmosphere,” Norman said on his visit to Florida. “On an official visit, you get the chance to spend time with the other recruit and people around here. Just seeing everyone and spending the weekend with them was definitely eye-opening. It let me know that something could be big for this 2023 class.”

Collins is the fifth defensive line commit in the class joining Kelby Collins, Gavin Hill, Isaiah Nixon, and TJ Searcy as the Gators look to add several more guys to the class as the defensive line room needs to add depth.
