New Florida head coach Dan Mullen was only hired in the last week, but he is already making his presence felt on the recruiting trail. He managed to flip four-star offensive lineman Chris Bleich from UCLA as he made it official in a tweet:
Bleich was also committed to Penn State at one point, but decommitted from there back in April. He becomes the 17th commitment for the Gators recruiting class in 2018. The 6-foot-6, 313-pound lineman is ranked as a four-star recruit and No. 12 recruit in the state of Pennsylvania as well as the No. 22 player at his position according to ESPN.
