The Florida Gators have landed a big fish at a rival’s expense. In-state offensive lineman Roderick Kearney announced his commitment to Florida, flipping from Florida State, where he had been committed since June 26.
Kearney is rated a four-star prospect on the 247 composite rankings. He is listed as the nation’s No. 4 IOL and No. 123 overall prospect.
The 6’4, 300 lb prospect from Orange Park was primarily recruited by Rob Sale and Darnell Stapleton.
Kearney publicly spurned Florida when he committed to Florida State. The commitment came less than an hour following his official visit to UF. He took his official visit to Tallahassee October 15.
Kearney is the twenty-second commitment in Florida’s 2023 class. The Gators’ class is ranked No. 8 in the country and No. 4 in the SEC.
