Defensive lineman Joey Ivie (Dade City, FL), ranked as a four-star defensive end by Rivals and three-star defensive tackle by ESPN, committed to the Florida Gators on Saturday and became the 17th member of the team’s 2013 recruiting class.
At 6’4” and 270 lbs., Ivie can play both defensive line positions and proved as much while participating in a Gators football camp in Gainesville, FL on Saturday.
Though he never officially announced which programs led for his services, Ivie chose Florida over a long list of offers from schools like Florida State, Miami and Tennessee.
He is just the second defensive lineman to join the Gators’ 2013 class, the other being four-star DT Caleb Brantley (Crescent City, FL), but is the ninth commitment on the defensive side of the ball and 13th from the state of Florida.
Ivie’s commitment was first reported by ESPN.
