After in-home, LB picks Gators

The worst kept secret in the state of Florida is finally out. After saying that he was torn between Florida, Maryland and Tennessee, four-star outside linebacker Brandon Siler has decided to end the recruiting process after having an in-home visit with coach Ron Zook.
“We decided to go ahead and commit tonight to Florida,” Siler’s mother, Annette Robinson, said. “I like the coach, and like everything about the school. Brandon was really high on his playing time chances there. We all felt they were offering the best situation for him.
“It’s the best decision. It’s going to be close to home, and that’s what I like.”
