BEAVERTON, Ore. — It’s been almost four months since Kenney Britt first visited Florida, but he plans to return soon.
The 4-star linebacker has a family reunion during the last week of July in Orlando, Fla. On his way home to Oxford, Ala., Britt intends to make a stop at UF with his parents and younger brother.
“I don’t have a date set yet, but I’m trying to get back there. That’s the plan,” Britt said at The Opening, Nike’s annual summer camp for elite football prospects.
The 6-foot, 232-pounder took a trip to Florida in March and called it the best visit he had been on at the time. He’s looking forward to a second go-round in Gainesville.
“I just want to go and have a good time again,” Britt said. “I’ve seen the campus and the facilities, so I’m just trying to have fun and enjoy the coaches. My parents want to get a good feel for everybody there.”
UF coach Jim McElwain personally recruits Britt and is still pursuing him heavily.
“We talk every day,” said Britt, the nation’s No. 15 inside linebacker. “He wants me to be his linebacker and he tells me I’m going to be a Gator. He’s pretty confident.”
Britt is scheduled to make his decision Aug. 6. Auburn, Florida and Georgia are among the finalists, but he claims no leader at this time.
“I haven’t make up my mind yet (on a school),” Britt said. “I’m just going to pray about it and follow my heart.”
