GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida’s top receiver target, 4-star prospect James Robinson, officially visited UF this weekend.
The Under Armour All-American hung out with several Florida commits, early enrollees and current players, most notably Gators linebacker pledge Ventrell Miller.
Both Miller and Robinson are from Lakeland, Fla.
“The bonds I had with everyone,” Robinson said, “that was the highlight of my trip.”
Robinson, who is recruited primarily by UF secondary coach Torrian Gray, had previously said he needed to forge a relationship with receivers coach Kerry Dixon II.
On Sunday, Robinson told SEC Country that has happened after spending time with Dixon this weekend and receiving two in-home visits from him on Dec. 8 and Jan. 12.
“Yeah, we have built a bond,” Robinson said. “Ever since they started coming hard at me, we’ve gotten closer.”

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound wideout is ranked the nation’s No. 11 receiver and No. 76 overall recruit.
Robinson plans to visit Alabama (Jan. 20) and Ole Miss (Jan. 27) before making his decision on National Signing Day.
Hoping to make a lasting impression, Dixon and the staff stressed to Robinson that he can make an instant impact in Florida’s offense.
“Their message is just that I could come in and play,” Robinson said. “They tell me I have length and athletic ability to go up and get the ball, and that’s what they need.”
