Receiver Nate Craig-Myers (6-2, 205, Tampa, FL Catholic) is one of the top targets remaining on the Florida Gators recruiting board and on Saturday he visited Gainesville to see the Gators take on the Noles.
“This is either my third or fourth visit to Florida this year, I’m losing count,” Craig-Myers said. “I’m just getting the same feeling, nothing different really, just the same. They are still showing me what they need to show me out there.”
Craig-Myers was in town for the Gators’ win over Tennessee earlier this year but the crowd in the Swamp impressed him on Saturday night.
“The atmosphere was great even though they didn’t come out on top,” he said. “The crowd was still rocking and they had a sold out crowd. The team played well but they have to make a few more plays.”
Saturday wasn’t the offensive performance that they hoped to show those on the Florida Gators recruiting board, but Craig-Myers said that he noticed an opportunity to play early at Florida on Saturday.
“It definitely has a big impact on me,” Craig-Myers said on the opportunity to come in and play early. “Watching the younger receivers get in there, I feel like I could be a big part of things next year. They’re definitely keeping true to their word by showing that the young receivers will play.”
Craig-Myers, who says he speaks with several schools a lot, says that he speaks mainly to Kerry Dixon and Chris Rumph from the Gators.
“I talk to Coach Dixon and Coach Rumph the most from Florida, but I talk to pretty much the whole coaching staff,” he said. “I talk to them often, I talk to them every day or every two days. We just chop it up with each other.”
INSIDERS TAKE: Craig-Myers says he will announce his decision on signing day and he’s still working on his official visits. Right now I would say Florida and Florida State are the teams to beat heading into those official visits.”
