The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Pitts visited Florida in June and bonded with the coaches on his trip.
“That was really important,” Pitts told SEC Country. “I just wanted to make sure all the people I talk to on the phone are like that in person, and they are. So they met my expectations.”
Pitts is ranked as the nation’s No. 11 tight end and No. 252 overall prospect, according to the 247Sports composite. With his pledge, the Gators now have nine members in their 2018 class. Curtis Dunlap, a 4-star offensive lineman from IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) committed to Florida on Tuesday.
