Looking to add depth along the defensive line, the Florida Gators gained a verbal commitment Sunday from four-star JUCO defensive tackle Visesio Salt (Walnut, CA).

Nicknamed “Junior,” Salt confirmed his commitment to ESPN.com, which notes that he will be utilized as a nose tackle in part due to his 6’3” 340-pound frame. He can also play offensive guard and could be moved to that side of the ball depending how he performs in practice once he arrives in Gainesville, FL.

He is listed as the No. 9 JUCO player in the country, according to Rivals.com, and is expected to join Florida in May after graduating from Mount San Antonio College.

Salt is the 17th player to commit to the Gators for 2012 and the fourth defensive lineman. He joins four-star DT Dante Phillips (Venice, FL), three-star defensive end Quinteze Williams (Tyrone, GA) and three-star DT Jafar Mann (Stone Mountain, GA).

    Thanks for the info and working on Sun morning, Adam. We need more Beef and 330+ lb linemen on offense, as well. Lsu and Bama have been mining this Juco talent for some time to find linemen that are GROWN. Hope we can do the same….

    Great news, hopefully he’ll be an impact player. we definitely need the size at the position.

      yeah, not many 18 yo high school players come that size, with both strength and quickness. Saban & Miles seem to find them, but we have not (or haven’t made it a priority) over the last 4 years. We need to put more focus on size of our fronts, and maybe not so much on ‘athletes’, whose role is undefined or uncertain, then we struggle to fit them into a scheme…

    Great pick-up on paper by Muschamp. We need experience, maturity, and depth on both lines and this kid seems to be just that. Hopefully he can be an impact right away
