SAN ANTONIO - Five-star defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard has announced that he will be playing for the Florida Gators.

Florida beat out Clemson and South Carolina for five-star defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard.

He felt comfortable there.

"I have always felt comfortable each time I have visited there and I really like their coaches. I also feel like I have a chance to go in and play early, so I like that too," said Bullard.

Bullard is a 6-foot-4, 260 pound defensive end out of Shelby (NC) Crest.

Scout's Take: Bullard is a very strong defensive end who could slide inside to play some tackle in nickel situations. He is quicker than some expect, he has active hands, and he is effective versus the run and the pass. He can still play a little high, so he needs to work on his pad level and also his moves off the ball.

Chad Simmons is currently a National Recruiting Analyst for FOX Sports/Scout. He started with Scout in 2003 and then moved on to another Recruiting Service from 2004-2008 before returning to Scout the first of 2009 to become South Recruiting Manager.
