Providence's lineman David Sharpe picks the Florida Gators over Clemson and Tennessee on Thursday morning.

Sharpe said he developed a relationship early with the university and head coach Will Muschamp never wavered from the tackle.

The No. 2-ranked offensive tackle feels he can make an immediate impact in Gainesville on the line.

Sharpe said he has known for three weeks now he would go to Florida before making the official announcement this week.
