Florida commit talks visit from Gators’ coaches; Ready for official visit

When describing his time spent at home with members of Florida’s coaching staff, including head coach Jim McElwain, Daquon Green provided three words:

“Great as always.”

With an official visit scheduled for Gainesville next week, the Under Armour All-American shared his impressions of the Gators’ program.

“Close to family and they’re trustworthy,” Green said. “I know I’ll make a change.”

The Tampa Bay Tech (Tampa Bay, FL) wide receiver received a scholarship offer from Florida on May 4, which was the same day as Ole Miss.

Miami offered three days prior while Middle Tennessee State, Virginia Tech, UCF, North Carolina, Idaho, Georgia, Ohio State, Tennessee, South Carolina and Auburn all went on to extend offers of their own in the month of May as well.

Green had also landed offers from Toledo (Feb. 9), Cincinnati (Feb. 13) and Kentucky (April 20) while receiving a visit from Ohio State running backs coach Tony Alford on May 20, and took an unofficial visit to USF on June 1.

Five days later, the 2017 prospect attended Michigan’s satellite camp in Tampa, and landed an offer from the Wolverines the following day.

EVALUATION

This is the compliment to wide receiver Antonio Callaway that Coach McElwain has been waiting for.

Having this tandum on the football field can create more attention from opposing safety to help free up a more consistent run game for the Gators.

A pure X-receiver possessing traits which allow him to line up at multiple spots along the perimeter of an offense.

High points the football naturally in both one-on-one and blanket coverage scenarios.

Explosive in the bubble screen game and slant patterns.

Physical coming off the line of scrimmage and devastating at the point of attack as a run blocker.

Reminds us of former South Carolina wide receiver Pharoh Cooper, who completed his rookie season with the Los Angeles Rams.
