Four-star 2017 DE Zachary Carter commits to Florida

The Florida Gators football program has added another top talent to the 2017 recruiting class.

According to Rivals, four-star Class of 2017 defensive end Zachary Carter has announced his commitment to Jim McElwain’s program.

Carter made his commitment to Florida, despite spending nearly a week on a visit with his other finalist, Clemson. While on the Clemson campus, it confirmed Carter’s belief since a child that the Gators were his dream program.

“Florida has always been my dream school growing up,” he told Rivals. “I felt like, after that last visit to Clemson, picking Florida was the right thing to do. I visited both of them quite a few times to make sure I was making the right decision. I feel like Florida is right.”

The 6-foot-4, 235-pounder is currently the No. 2-ranked strongside defensive end in his class.

With his impressive size and versatility entering his senior year of high school, the Gators seem eager to get him on campus and involved in multiple roles along the team’s defensive front.
