Gators land big-time LSU transfer TE Arik Gilbert

Gators land big-time LSU transfer TE Arik Gilbert”

Gilbert was the highest-rated tight end in 247Sports history, and he played like it, but by December he went to coach Ed Orgeron and informed him he was opting out for the final weeks of the season.

With the Florida Gators set to close out their Class of 2021 this Wednesday on National Signing Day, the program received one of its biggest commitments Sunday from a player who was actually part of the Class of 2020. He had 35 catches for 368 yards and two touchdowns across eight games.

Meanwhile for LSU, among the candidates to replace Gilbert will be St. Thomas More's Jack Bech, who is expected to move to TE in Baton Rouge.

Gilbert might have been the most highly coveted player on the transfer market after he chose to leave the Tigers with two games remaining in the 2020 season.

Arik Gilbert is heading to Florida.

This past season, Gilbert was fourth in receiving yards at LSU.

Gilbert likely will step right into a starring role at Florida, which also lost quarterback Kyle Trask and receivers Trevon Grimes and Kadarius Toney. He suffered a concussion against Georgia and opted out of the Cotton Bowl to prepare for the National Football League draft. The Gators should once again be one of the teams to beat in the SEC East but are looking for QB Emory Jones (or someone else) to step up and seize the QB job ahead of next season. Florida and LSU are annual cross-division rivals in the SEC and their 2021 matchup is scheduled for October 16.
