nickAug 19, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Groveland South Lake’s cornerback Nick Waisome on Wednesday announced his verbal commitment to the Florida Gators during an ESPNU program. The cornerback, who is considered the seventh-best in United States, said that he would like to play the four years of his college life under the banner of the University of Florida. The announcement provides the Florida Gators with 14 verbal commitments in its 2011 recruiting class.

When asked about his choice of team, Nick Waisome hardly took any time to come up with his decision and immediately swapped his South Lake High school hat for a blue hat with a Florida Gator logo making his intentions of becoming a Florida Gator next year evident. Nick Waisome has chosen Florida Gators over Georgia Bulldogs, Florida State, South Carolina and Louisiana State University. Nick Waisome said “The place I’ll be playing my college football at — the University of Florida”. The player maintained that he has chosen University of Florida as he likes the atmosphere of the school adding that it is a fun place to be in. Nick Waisome said that he shares a great relationship with the coaches and some of the players of the team.

If Nick Waisome joins the Florida Gators in 2011, then he would become the fifth player to join the team out of the Groveland South Lake. However, the player mentioned that he had not joined the team simply because many other of his seniors have chosen Florida Gators before. He maintained that it was his own personal “mission” to find himself the best school to be in and affirmed that the Florida Gators has a “great program with some great coaches” where he would love to spend his coming four years.
