DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — During the final month of his recruitment, Jachai Polite found himself in a tough spot.
The Florida defensive end commit was being heavily pursued by Southern Cal, a school that has landed a couple of players from his high school, Daytona Beach Mainland.
“It was a difficult choice,” Polite said. “USC gave me a lot to think about it. It was hard to pick between them. They were equal with academics, so it really came down to coaches. I just had a better relationship with the Florida coaches.”
In the video interview above, Polite answers the following questions:
- What expectations does the staff have for him?
- Why did he stick with Florida after visiting Southern Cal?
- What does he like about UF defensive line coach Chris Rumph?
- How much will his D-line class impact the Gators?
- What are his team expectations for next season?
