The Florida Gators have been on an offering spree as of late and that holds especially true on the offensive side of the ball.
One of the latest offers went out to Louisville tight end/defensive tackle commit G.G. Robinson (6-4, 265, Lilburn, GA Parkview) who spoke to tight ends coach Greg Nord on Thursday.
“I called Coach Nord and he was sitting around the table with all of the coaches so I had the chance to talk to all of the coaches at Florida,” Robinson said. “It eventually got to Coach Mac [McElwain] and that’s when he offered me a scholarship to Florida.”
McElwain originally offered Robinson on the offensive side of the ball but according to the Louisville commit the Gators are open to either side of the ball.
“Coach Mac, during that conversation, offered me as a tight end,” Robinson said. “He told me that he can’t wait for me to visit and get on campus. Just all of that good stuff but like a day later he messaged me and said that I had an offer on the defensive side of the ball too if that’s what I prefer to play. He said that he just wanted me to come be a Gator.”
Some prospects have a preference on which side of the ball they want to play but Robinson is more concerned about just getting on the field.
“It doesn’t really matter but I’m 6-4, 265-pounds so I’m not sure about offense,” Robinson said. “I may be better on the defensive side of the ball but I’m really up for wherever they decide to play me honestly.”
With a Florida off now in hand, the Louisville commit has interest in the Gators and is looking forward to visiting Florida soon.
“I plan to visit January 30th for an official visit,” Robinson said. “I’ve never been to Florida so I don’t really know what to expect so I’m just going in with an open mind and looking to see what they have to offer me as a student-athlete.”
Despite the new Florida offer Robinson says he remains locked in to Louisville but his decision isn’t final yet.
“I’m going to Louisville on Friday and to Kansas State the next weekend,” Robinson said. “I’m pretty solid to Louisville right now but I’m looking at Florida. I’ll have a final decision on signing day.”
INSIDERS TAKE: Robinson is a prospect that I believe Florida has a great shot at landing if they decide to push hard for him. Robinson is a unique prospect because he can play defensive line or offensive line or he could even drop a few pounds and play tight end. It’s always nice to have versatility with players like Robinson.
