Florida Football: Two More 2016 Commits, Tyrek Tisdale And Lamical Perine, May Enroll Early With Chauncey Gardner

On Tuesday night, four-star Florida commit Chauncey Gardner tweeted that he may enroll early at UF and kick off his freshman year a semester early. He may not be alone, among Florida's current 2016 commits. This morning, within minutes of one another, three star pledges Tyrek Tisdale and Lamical Perine both tweeted that they may do the same.

Tisdale and Perine are both three-star running backs. Tisdale is from Orlando, while Perine comes from Alabama. On top of allowing freshmen to get a jump on courses and participate in spring practices, having early enrollees may also let Jim McElwain bring in a bigger 2016 class, as early enrollees can often be counted towards the scholarship limits of the previous recruiting class. Florida is only bringing in 15 players in the 2015 class, so that could be big, especially for a program looking to rebuild depth after a coaching change.
