Jammal Abrams is a 6’3”225-pound linebacker. The newest Gator commit is a very well-built linebacker that should be a very solid pickup for the Gators. Florida failed to sign a true inside linebacker in the 2018 class, so Abrams is an important addition to the Gators. Abrams is best as a run stopper. He has good closing speed and does a good job of wrapping up the ball carrier. He loves to hit and is very aggressive. With good coaching, Abrams could really develop into a very solid linebacker. He is also athletic enough to be in pass coverage but does need some work on his coverage skills. He also plays special teams in high school. Jamaal Abrams is a very solid pickup for the Gators who could make an impact within the next few years.
