Although Florida brought in two highly regarded quarterbacks for the class of 2014, head coach Will Muschamp has his eye to the future. Saturday, 2016 quarterback Jawon Pass (6-5, 225, Columbus, GA Carver) took his first visit to Florida where, among other things, he had a chance to watch the Gators dominate Kentucky in basketball.
“I loved the visit; it was great and I enjoyed it,” Pass said. “The basketball game was live; it was getting loud in there. It was the loudest I’ve ever heard a place get for a basketball game. Florida has good fans they were getting crunk.”
When the basketball game ended Pass and the rest of the football prospects that were on campus headed over to the football complex to meet the football coaches.
“I got to talk to Coach (Joker) Phillips and Coach (Will) Muschamp after the game,” Pass said. “Coach Muschamp was talking to me about how life is at Florida and how that he keeps it real with you and tells you exactly how it is. He said that he thinks that I fit in great into the spread offense and he said that it was going to be strictly shotgun on offense.”
After Pass finished talking to Muschamp and Phillips he was given a tour of the campus and the facilities which impressed the 2016 quarterback.
“I really liked the campus too,” Pass said. “The campus was big and real spread out but everything was really nice there. I love the weather down there.”
Next up for Pass will be a return trip to Florida where he wants to watch the Gators go through spring practice and he wanted the Gators new offensive coordinator.
“I will probably be back in the spring for a practice with my teammates,” Pass said. “I want to come back down and check out the offense for myself and see what Coach (Kurt) Roper has to say about it.”
