Details of Justin Fields’ visit to the Florida Gators

The Justin Fields’ show pulled into Gainesville on Tuesday afternoon and stayed in Gainesville for a little more than 24 hours before the quarterback headed home with his mother.

Fields is one of the most sought after quarterbacks in the country and he visited Georgia, Auburn and Florida State last week prior to his trip to Gainesville.

GatorCountry is going to bring you some of things that Fields was able to do on his trip that included meeting a Gator legend.

Florida rolled out the red carpet for Fields and his mom during his time in Gainesville and it started from the moment he got out of the car.

Fields was met at the football facility by the Gators coaching staff, who welcomed the five star quarterback to town. Later on Tuesday night Fields had the chance to eat dinner with the all of the Gators’ incoming freshman who reported to school on Tuesday. This was the first time for Fields to really get to interact with current Gators football players.

Tuesday night Fields had the chance to hang out with Gators freshman Malik Davis, Zach Carter and Daquon Green where the quarterback was able to pick their minds about Florida and why they choose the Gators. Running backs coach JaJuan Seider, who has been one of the main recruiters for Fields, also spent some time with the quarterback and his mom.

Wednesday was the big day for Fields and the Gators and it started off with the quarterback eating breakfast with incoming grad transfer quarterback Malik Zaire. Zaire and Fields spent a lot of time together at the Elite 11 two weekends ago in California. Zaire also announced his intentions to play for Florida while out in California. The two quarterbacks got to catch up a little more over breakfast on Wednesday where Fields was asking Zaire questions about Florida and why he chose the Gators.

After breakfast Fields had the chance to sit and meet with Gators legend Steve Spurrier on Wednesday. Fields is a football guy that grew up watching the sport, so meeting Spurrier was a highlight of the trip.

Setting up this meeting with Spurrier was a great idea by head coach Jim McElwain, recruiting coordinator Drew Hughes and the rest of the coaching staff.
Wednesday was also spent with McElwain and offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier who was on the chalkboard showing the offense to Fields and going over things with the quarterback. Fields has seen the campus before so the real reason behind the visit was to get on the board with the Gators coaches.

This is a behind the scenes look of what Fields was able to do while in Gainesville, GatorCountry will continue to update you on the latest developments with the quarterback.

Back when I was a wee one I had to decide if I wanted to live dangerously and become a computer hacker or start a website devoted to the Gators. I chose the Gators instead of the daily thrill of knowing my next meal might be at Leavenworth. No regrets, however. The Gators have been and will continue to be my addiction. What makes this so much fun is that the more addicted I become to the Florida Gators, the more fun I have doing innovative things to help bring all the Gator news that is news (and some that isn’t) to Gator fans around the world. Andy Warhol said we all have our 15 minutes of fame. Thanks to Gator Country, I’m working on a half hour. Thanks to an understanding daughter that can’t decide if she’s going to be the female version of Einstein, Miss Universe, President of the United States or a princess, I get to spend my days doing what I’ve done since Gus Garcia and I founded Gator Country back in 1996. Has it really been over a decade and a half now?
