Strong lands defensive tackle from Florida

Daquan Ivery, a three-star defensive tackle out of Lake City, Fla., committed to Louisville on Wednesday. Ivery chose U of L over Illinois, Indiana, Purdue, Southern Mississippi, Syracuse and others.

The 6-1, 310-pound Ivery finished his junior season with 20 tackles and five sacks and put up slightly better numbers this year at Columbia High School in Lake City (60 miles west of Jacksonville), according to the C-J's Jody Demling. He's classified as an under-the-radar recruit who reportedly runs a 5.1 second 40-yard dash and has been compared to Vince Wilfork. The video below shows Ivery using a bull rush technique to put pressure on the quarterback, which makes sense for a kid who outweighs his blocker(s) by 50+ pounds.

According to Rivals.com, Ivery was recruited by Vance Bedford and Clint Hurtt. He is the 17th member of Charlie Strong's recruiting class of 2012 and the fifth from the state of Florida.
