Today is the day avid college football fans wait impatiently for immediately following the national championship game: National Signing Day. For Gator Nation, today means a little bit more. Losing standouts like Jalen ‘Teez’ Tabor, Quincy Wilson and Alex Anazalone, the Gators are desperately looking to reload.
Four-star recruit from American Heritage High School, TJ Slaton signed with the Gators. Slaton is listed as an offensive tackle, but it is to be believed that Coach Jim McElwain and his staff might use him on the defensive line.
Also committing to Florida earlier today was four-star defensive end Zach Carter.
