GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida boasts a pair of athletic tight ends this year, with DeAndre Goolsby and C’yontai Lewis primed to become focal points in the Gators’ passing game.
Their play in practice this week caught the attention of three-star tight end Kemore Gamble, a 6-foot-4, 222-pounder from Miami Southridge.
“The way they use their tight ends really stood out to me,” said Gamble, who visited UF on Monday. “They give all kinds of routes and motion them a lot. That was very appealing to me.
“I also liked that they were passing a lot. This year they brought in a good quarterback, Feleipe Franks. That’s good to see.”
Gamble, the nation’s No. 13 tight end, de-committed from Miami earlier this month. UF was the first trip he took since backing off that pledge.
“I loved the visit,” Gamble said. “They showed me around the campus and had me watch practice, so it was great. The coaches showed major love. They told me I’m athletic and I have the ability to come in and play early.”
Gamble revealed his top five to SEC Country, which consists of Florida, Miami, North Carolina, N.C. State and Tennessee. He hopes to commit to a new school by the end of the summer and plans to visit the Vols next.
“They have a nice campus,” said Gamble, who visited Knoxville in June 2014. “The Miami coach who offered me (Larry Scott) is at Tennessee now, so that’s big.”
