GAINESVILLE -- The future of Florida’s offensive line looks solid after the Gators gained a commitment from Nebraska transfer Tyler Moore, a former four-star recruit from Clearwater Countryside, according to ESPN.com.
Moore (6-6, 305) started at left tackle as a freshman for the Cornhuskers before deciding to sit out his sophomore season for what he called personal reasons. Moore also considered Florida State after deciding to play close to home. He will sit out this season and be eligible to play in 2013 as a sophomore.
The Gators also have Maryland transfer Max Garcia ready to step in next season, and have top recruits D.J. Humphries and Jessamen Dunker playing their first seasons in Gainesville.
