A handful of Florida coaches are checking out some of the Gators’ top in-state targets Thursday night.
UF offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier and wide receivers coach Kerry Dixon II will be in Tampa for Florida commit Daquon Green (Tampa Bay Tech) and a pair of 2018 teammates from Armwood High School (Seffner, Fla.), wide receiver Warren Thompson and running back Brian Snead.
Running backs coach Tim Skipper and secondary coach Torrian Gray will attend Jacksonville Trinity Christian’s spring game to watch Ohio State cornerback commit Shaun Wade, 2018 cornerback Tyreke Johnson and 2018 safety Chamarri Conner, who earned an offer from Michigan on Tuesday.
Defensive line coach Chris Rumph is going to see defensive end Zachary Carter of Hillsborough High School in Tampa. Carter told SEC Country two weeks ago the Gators will be tough to beat. Earlier Thursday, Rumph was in Largo to visit Pinellas Park defensive tackle Jordon Scott.
Offensive line coach Mike Summers paid a visit Thursday to Pensacola offensive tackle Alex Leatherwood, an Alabama commit.
