Notre Dame Commitment Switches to UF
GAINESVILLE - Justin Trattou, a 6-foot-4, 230 pound defensive end from Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco, orally committed to coach Urban Meyer late Thursday night.
Trattou had prevsiously given an oral commitment to Notre Dame. He played in the U.S. Army All American game with James Wilson, who has orally committed to the Gators, and UF early enrollee Aaron Hernandez.
"I committed to Florida,'' Trattou told rivals.com. "Coach Weis was in (Wednesday) and coach Meyer was in (Thursday) and I just feel I fit better in Florida's system. To see what those defensive ends can do and how they play at Florida is more of my style of play."
He told rivals.com the decision to choose the Gators over Notre Dame was difficult.
