GAINESVILLE — Recruiting momentum is picking up for Florida as summer approaches.

UF landed its second defensive tackle in as many weeks Thursday when junior college prospect Javier Edwards committed to the Gators on the spot after receiving an offer.

He’s the seventh member of Florida’s 2017 class and the second pledge at his position, joining Jordon Scott.

The 6-foot-3, 340-pound Edwards is originally from Houston and plays for Blinn College in Texas. Florida defensive coordinator Geoff Collins offered him in high school when he coached at Mississippi State.
