Addressing another of the program’s biggest roster needs, the Florida Gators on Tuesday added their first offensive lineman from the transfer portal this offseason. Baylor’s Micah Mazzccua committed to join Florida with three years of eligibility remaining.

Mazzccua, a former three-star prospect from the Class of 2020, started the last two years at guard for the Bears and primarily plays on the left side. The 6-foot-5, 331-pound lineman has three years left to play after taking redshirt as a freshman.

There were a number of Power Five programs hoping to add Mazzccua out of the portal with Florida primarily beating Auburn and Nebraska for his services. Given the Gators’ depth issues on the offensive line, he has a legitimate chance to step in as a Week 1 starter.

Head coach Billy Napier has generally put a premium on targeting transfers with multiple years of eligibility remaining, and Mazzccua certainly fits that bill. He undoubtedly saw the success O’Cyrus Torrence had in a single season at Florida being taught by offensive coordinator Rob Sale and assistant offensive line coach Darnell Stapleton.

Mazzccua is the sixth transfer Florida has acquired this offseason. Newly graded four-star defensive end Caleb Banks (Louisville), four-star defensive tackle Cam’Ron Jackson (Memphis), there-star linebacker Teradja Mitchell (Ohio State) and three-star quarterback Graham Mertz (Wisconsin) are also in the fold as is LB Deuce Spurlock (Michigan), who along with Mazzccua has yet to be regraded by 247Sports.
