Florida adds another EDGE to guest list for Tennessee game

Florida’s SEC opener against Tennessee is turning out to be a recruiting weekend for the Gators. The latest recruit to confirm his visit to the Swamp for gameday is Pace (Milton, Florida) edge rusher Tylon Lee, according to 247Sports.

Lee already knows the campus and stadium a bit from his April visit for the Orange and Blue Game, but he’ll be looking at things through a different lens with an offer in hand. Florida took that step at the end of August. Getting Lee in town so quickly is a good sign.

Outside linebackers coach Mike Peterson has impressed Lee during his recruitment.

“That is the type of coach I love,” Lee said of Peterson. “One that makes you feel like you can be at home… I love how he talks to his players and builds relationships with all of them.”

Lee isn’t in a position to name any top programs, but he’s openly interested in Florida. The Gators need to impress during the Tennessee game, but he also wants to get a closer look at the academic side of things.

Lee is a three-star recruit according to both 247Sports and On3. He is currently No. 441 nationally on the On3 industry ranking and No. 33 among edge rushers in his class.
