Florida in McMillan’s top five

Florida hosted several top notch prospects on campus on Saturday but one prospect was a surprise visitors.

That prospect was Hinesville (Ga.) Liberty County linebacker Raekwon McMillan who was glad to be back in Gainesville.

“It was a great visit,” McMillan said. “I came back to Florida because I hadn’t been here in a while. I came back down here to visit with Coach (Will) Muschamp and coach (D.J.) Durkin again.”

For the 6-foot-3, 235-pound McMillan the message from Durkin and Muschamp was simple and to the point.

“We talked about me coming to player here,” McMillan said. “And me filling Jon Bostic’s role and stepping in and being the next middle linebacker to play for them under a defensive coach and stuff like that.”

McMillan has been to Gainesville several times and he already has plans to see Florida twice more this year due in large part to the staff at Florida.

“Florida has a great staff and the campus is beautiful and coach (Will) Muschamp is a defensive coach,” McMillan said. “The people down here man they are great people. I’ll be back next Saturday. I want to see a game too this fall. Last year I came to the Missouri game but they didn’t pack out the Missouri game. This year I probably be back for the Florida State game and see a packed house.”

McMillan says that in his head he has a leader but right now his top 5 are Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, Florida and Georgia in no order.

One thing Florida has going in the favor is the bond that McMillan has formed with one of Florida’s linebackers.

“Antonio Morrison that’s my guy man,” McMillan said. “Last time I visited I chilled with him and Mike T (Taylor). I could see myself playing here because those are guys I like to play beside. Antonio has told me that me being an early enrollee is a good thing.”
