Friday Night Lights has turned into an event where underclassmen are able to prove themselves to the coaching staff during camp.
Last Friday, 2015 Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School cornerback Rashard Causey was one of those underclassmen who showed his talents off and ultimately, picked up a Florida offer.
“This is a very big offer for me from Florida,” Causey said. “Coach T-Rob was the coach that offered me after the camp. He was just telling me that I had an offer from Florida and he liked the way I performed out there during the camp and that he was going to be watching me closely.”
The 6-foot, 175-pound Causey had never visited Florida before Friday but came away impressed by Gainesville.
“This was my first time on the campus and I liked it,” Causey said. “ I liked the atmosphere and everything up there. I felt like I was at home up there. It was cool to see the lights on and the music blaring. It felt like home because we do that down at my high school.”
Not only did Causey get the chance to meet with cornerbacks coach Travaris Robinson, but he also met with head coach Will Muschamp.
“Coach Muschamp said he was looking forward to seeing me play and that I had an offer from Florida,” Causey said. “He told me that me and my teammate, Sam Bruce, looked good out there during the camp and that we competed hard.”
So far the 2015 cornerback has two visits planned this fall, but he says he will most likely be up to Gainesville with one of his teammates.
“I’ll probably visit Florida with Quincy (Wilson) and those guys this fall,” Causey said. “I know that I’m going to go to the Florida State vs. Miami game and the Florida vs. Miami game this fall.”
With Causey only being a 2015 prospect, he said that right now he is pretty open in his recruitment and just wants to enjoy the process.
