GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida would like to land another wide receiver for its 2016 class, and Tre Nixon may now be the most likely option.
The four-star recruit from Viera (Fla.) will receive an in-home visit Wednesday from UF coach Jim McElwain and receivers coach Kerry Dixon II.
Nixon visited UGA this past weekend and told SEC Country last month he would consider taking an official to Florida. He currently doesn’t have any other trips scheduled in January.
“I always had interest in Florida and still do,” Nixon said. “The next step would be for me to visit them again with my mom so she can meet coach McElwain and the rest of the staff.”
They’ll host a pair of wideouts on campus over the next two weeks, but both are committed elsewhere and could be tough to flip (Miami’s Sam Bruce and Houston’s Tyrie Cleveland).
Auburn commit Eli Stove is no longer officially visiting Florida this weekend as originally planned.
