On Tuesday night, he revealed that Florida had obtained the preferred walk-on commitment of interior offensive lineman Chase Stevens, a 2024 graduate of Vero Beach, Florida.

“I want to thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, first and foremost. “I am grateful to my parents for everything they have done for me throughout my life and journey,” Chase posted on social media about his commitment.

“After giving it some serious thought, I’ve made the decision to accept a PWO opportunity to play for the one school I’ve always really wanted to play for. GO GATORS!”

The 6-foot-4, 293-pound Stevens pledged to the Gators over reported scholarship offers from Austin Peay, Bethune-Cookman and Rhode Island.

Stevens possesses at least two seasons of starting experience with Vero Beach as an interior lineman, having aligned at center and both left and right guard in games. Additionally, Stevens has participated in discus throw and shot put for his high school’s track and field team.

Here are some of Stevens’ best performances from his junior and senior seasons.

In addition, Stevens becomes the second offensive lineman from PWO to commit to the Gators in the 2024 recruiting cycle, after offensive tackle Mark Faircloth of Florida State University School in Tallahassee, Florida, made the pledge in November.

With tackles Fletcher Westphal of Leesburg, Virginia, Marcus Mascoll of Leesburg, Virginia, tackle Mike Williams of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, Charles Herbert Flowers, and guard Noel Portnjagin of Schwäbisch Hall, Germany, holding scholarship spots, he is Florida’s sixth overall offensive line commitment.
