2022 offensive lineman Jalen Farmer announced his commitment to the Florida Gators on Friday.

Florida beat out East Carolina and Georgia Tech for Farmer. The Gators hosted the 6-foot-5-inch, 325-pounder in June and August before extending an offer to him on August 1. Rivals rates Farmer as a three-star guard while 247Sports has yet to rate the prospect.

Offensive line coach John Hevesy has led the recruiting effort for Farmer and the two have built a good relationship. After a visit, Farmer raved about Hevesy’s approach to coaching and the program as a whole.

“I loved everything about it,” Farmer said to 247Sports. “It was great working out with them and I learned a lot from coach Hevesy. He liked how aggressive and coachable I was. I love his knowledge of the game, and his fire when it comes to coaching and teaching technique. I liked the competition of the camp and the facilities were a big plus. Everything was great.”

Farmer joins four-star Tony Livingston and three-star David Conner as the third offensive lineman in the Gators 2022 recruiting class. The Gators have scrambled to fill out the line after missing out on prospects such as Tyler Booker and Jacob Hood. Florida’s 2022 class stands at 14 players following Farmer’s commitment.

The newest Gators commit will be in Gainesville next week for the game against Alabama.
