Florida coach Dan Mullen and his coaching staff have an elite group of recruits planning to attend the spring game Saturday, and there’s a couple potential commits on the visitors list.
The biggest name to keep an eye on is 4-star cornerback Chester Kimbrough, who attends Warren Easton High School in New Orleans. He visits Florida for the first time this weekend and will be on commitment watch during his trip.
Kimbrough is ranked the nation’s No. 24 cornerback in the 247Sports composite and has 20 scholarship offers. He received one from the Gators on Feb. 28 and also holds offers from the likes of Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Mississippi State and Texas.
LSU is keeping close tabs on Kimbrough according to SEC Country’s Sam Speigelman, but he has yet to be offered by the in-state program. Kimbrough said he would still consider the Tigers if an offer comes, but admits “they have work to do.”
Cornerback is a position of need for the Gators in their 2019 class, so Kimbrough would be a big addition if he pulls the trigger this weekend. Another name to watch is former West Virginia defensive lineman Adam Shuler, who will be on an official visit to Florida.
The Longwood, Fla., native is looking for a new home after leaving the Mountaineers football program. If he enjoys his trip to Gainesville and there’s mutual interest from the Gators, Shuler could make his decision this weekend. He started 10 games at West Virginia last season.
