GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Mark Pope is nearing his college decision.
The 2018 wide receiver from Miami Southridge told SEC Country he plans to make an early commitment this summer.
“I just want to get it out the way,” Pope said.
The 6-foot-1, 165-pound will choose between Florida and Alabama. He also holds offers from Georgia, Miami and Tennessee.
“With Florida, I like the offense they run, the players, the facilities. I love everything about Florida,” Pope said.
“I visited Alabama and talked to Calvin Ridley. I want to come in and do what he did his freshman year, have an impact right away.”
Pope said proximity to home helps Florida’s chances, as does his teammate, Gators tight end commit Kemore Gamble.
“Kemore is like a brother to me,” Pope said. “Being here with him would be real fun.”
