Florida landed another huge commitment Friday, this time from Zachary Carter.

The 4-star defensive end from Tampa (Fla.) chose the Gators over Clemson, Tennessee and South Florida. He announced his decision on Twitter.

Carter has visited UF twice this year and built a strong relationship with defensive line coach Chris Rumph, his primary recruiter.

The 6-foot-4, 255-pound end is ranked as the No. 97 overall prospect and No. 4 strongside defensive end in the nation, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.

Florida now has nine members in its 2017 class, following the addition of Carter and 4-star cornerback Elijah Blades on Wednesday.
