GAINESVILLE, Fla. — This past recruiting weekend and Monday’s holiday didn’t stop Florida’s coaching staff from hitting the recruiting trail.
UF defensive coordinator Geoff Collins and defensive line coach Chris Rumph traveled to Vienna (Ga.) on Saturday for an in-home visit with Gators defensive end commit Antonneous Clayton, who earned his fifth star in the latest Rivals100 rankings.
After official visitors left campus Sunday, Florida coach Jim McElwain and linebackers coach Randy Shannon went in-home with three-star UF cornerback pledge C.J. McWilliams of Miami (Fla.) Southwest. McWilliams is coming off a visit to South Florida and will take a trip to North Carolina this weekend before his final official with the Gators on Jan. 29.
McElwain and Collins made it to Mississippi on Monday to see Meridian safety and Florida verbal commit Quincy Lenton. The two coaches then joined running backs coach Tim Skipper in Louisiana for an in-home visit with five-star cornerback Kristian Fulton of Metairie (La.) Rummel. Fulton named LSU his leader Sunday following his trip to Baton Rouge.
Wide receivers coach Kerry Dixon II checked in on Deerfield Field (Fla.) cornerback Aaron Robinson. Several schools are trying to flip the UF commit, with Alabama being the biggest threat to the Gators. He plans to unofficially visit Gainesville and Tuscaloosa before Signing Day.
Shannon went to Montgomery (Ala.) for defensive back pledges Antonio Nelson and Jeawon Taylor as well as five-star linebacker Mack Wilson. Taylor and Wilson officially visited UGA this past weekend.
Offensive line coach Mike Summers spent the day with junior college tackle Malcolm Pridgeon, who is perhaps the Gators’ best chance at adding another lineman to their class.
