Gators expected to offer Gastonia Ashbrook LB Otis

Now the Florida Gators have apparently jumped in on outside linebacker/defensive end Norkeithus Otis, according to Green Wave coach Mike Briggs.

“That’s what I understand,” Briggs said a few minutes ago. “He should be getting an offer in the mail real soon.”

Otis is a 6-foot-3, 205-pound junior with 4.6-second speed in the 40-yard dash. South Carolina, N.C. State and Wofford have already offered scholarships, and Clemson is strongly interested, Briggs said.

Through six games, Otis is averaging 9 tackles a game, with five sacks and two fumble recoveries.

“His motor won't quit; everyone loves this kid," said Briggs. “He's got long arms, big hands, a long stride and a big frame."
