The nation’s No. 1 overall recruit will receive a visit Tuesday from Dan Mullen.
The new Florida coach plans to see 5-star quarterback Justin Fields, who is from Harrison High School in Kennesaw, Ga.
Fields was targeted heavily by the previous UF staff, but the coaches stopped recruiting him after landing a commitment from Matt Corral in July.
Fields committed to Georgia last month, but told 247Sports’ Kipp Adams on Monday that he’ll consider taking an official visit to Florida. He also spoke highly of Mullen and his success with quarterbacks.
“I don’t really have a great relationship with Coach Mullen, but just seeing his past quarterback experience and the troubles Florida have had at the position, he should be able to help them get back to where they were with Tim Tebow,” Fields told 247Sports. “I know he’s coached Dak Prescot and Alex Smith and I hear he is a pretty good quarterback coach. I think he will turn Florida around and make them a successful program.”
