GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida had some big-name recruits on hand for Saturday’s season opener.
SEC Country caught up with a few of the visitors to get their thoughts on the Gators’ 24-7 win over UMass.
Jake Allen, 4-star quarterback, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (Florida commit)
“I thought it was a really good game given the circumstances. Luke Del Rio really spun the ball great in the rain and the running backs ran the ball real hard. The young wide receivers impressed me the most.”
Kai-Leon Herbert, 4-star offensive tackle, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (Michigan commit)
“My visit was good. It was my first time back in The Swamp since the spring game and the atmosphere was great. Very energetic. The offense did their thing tonight.”
Shaun Wade, 5-star cornerback, Jacksonville, Fla. (Ohio State commit)
“It was a nice atmosphere, great game. They looked good, but it was the first game of the season. Everybody plays rusty. So in the future they’ll look better.”
Marco Wilson, 4-star cornerback, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (Florida commit)
“Overall they did pretty good. Defense handled their business. It was great to see that. I’d rather the defense do really good, so I enjoyed that.”
