Florida is adding some more depth to their offensive line after their latest commitment announcement. 2020 three star offensive guard, Richard Leonard announced his collegiate choice via Twitter on Friday evening.

The Cocoa, Florida native is a monstrous 6’2″ and 320 lbs. Although he doesn’t rank particularly high in the national recruitment rankings, Leonard won Offensive Line MVP of The Opening Orlando 2019 and boasts a 21.70″ vertical leap.
247Sports lists Leonard as a three star with a 86.34% composite rating. It is widely believed that Leonard is an undervalued prospect with that ranking and his list of suitors speaks to that as well.
Florida was one of twenty-six programs to make an offer for the talented young athlete. John Hevesy and Greg Knox are credited with recruiting Leonard and beat out several rivals, such as FSU and Tennessee, in the process.
As the summer temperatures have heated up, so too has Florida’s recruiting efforts.
