The Florida Gators received good news on the 2019 recruiting trail Wednesday night when four-star linebacker Mohamoud Diabate announced his intentions to head to Gainesville. Diabate, (6-foot-3, 215 pounds) from Auburn (AL) High, is considered to be among the top 10 outside linebackers in the country and is also ranked among the top 150 overall prospects nationally in the class of 2019.
Diabate committed to Florida over numerous other offers including Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, LSU and Michigan. The commitment of Diabate continues a string of recent recruiting success for Florida.
Diabate is the sixth commitment for the Gators since June 1 and he is also the fourth prospect to commit to Florida in that time frame who is considered to be among the top 375 recruits in the country by 247sports.com.
The linebacker position is looking especially strong for Florida in its 2019 class.
Diante joins fellow four-star linebackers Diwun Black (Forest, MS) and Tyron Hopper (Roswell, GA) along with three-star linebacker Jesiah Pierre (Mount Dora, FL) in the Florida 2019 class.
The Gators 2019 class now sits with 13 current commitments and their current recruiting success has vaulted them into the top 25 of the 247sports.com recruiting rankings.
