AUBURN, Ala. — Eli Stove has played his cards close to the vest in recent weeks.
Despite being tentatively scheduled to officially visit Florida this coming weekend, the four-star receiver and Auburn commit was mum on his future plans after officially visiting the Tigers over the weekend.
“Yeah, I don’t really know yet,” Stove told SEC Country. “I’m still going to stick with Auburn. I’m just looking around just in case.”
Stove, who has been committed to Auburn since May, has shown mild interest in the Gators in recent months. He told SEC Country the week of the Under Armour All-America Game in Orlando, Fla., that his decision will likely come down to the two schools. Stove said in the recent interview that he has no intentions of canceling his upcoming trip, either.
Just this past Friday, Gators receivers coach Kerry Dixon dropped in at Stove’s home in Niceville, Fla., just before he took off for Auburn. But the 6-foot-1, 178-pound prospect maintains he’s firm with the Tigers.
“It went pretty well,” Stove said of the visit. “They showed up at my house. We talked about Florida, really, and what they have to offer, basically. But I’m going to stick with Auburn until I’ve seen something different, which I haven’t.”
Stove, who is rated as the No. 14 receiver in the country, is expecting coach Gus Malzahn on Jan. 21 for an in-home visit.
