According to a report in The Gainesville Sun, the Florida Gators have picked up commit number 11 for the 2013 recruiting class.  

Delray Beach junior tackle Roderick Johnson, who was being recruited by receivers coach Aubrey Hill, gave the Gators a verbal commitment on Saturday (Mar. 25).  Hill has been in Gainesville since 2011 and has a few solid three- and four-star commits under his belt.  

His Scout.com profile has Johnson as a three-star, and the No. 35 offensive tackle overall.  

Johnson will begin his senior season at American Heritage School, has an entire season to improve his skill level and may rise in value throughout the year.  

Roderick is the Gators' first offensive line commit for 2013 and helps add some depth at that position going forward.  

How solid his commitment is at this point is still in question.  "I'm interested in West Virginia, Auburn and Nebraska, but that's about it—I'm not sure if I will take any visits or not, I'm a solid commit to Florida right now," Johnson told ESPN's Derek Tyson on Saturday. 

As it stands right now, Roderick would be a decent addition to next year's class.
