Florida offers instate lineman Pellage

The Gators continued their rapid pace of offering prospects on Monday night when the coaching staff handed out several instate offers.

One of the prospects who received an offer was 2015 offensive lineman Christian Pellage (6-7, 250, Brooksville, FL Nature Coast) who received the news from the head man himself.

“Florida offered me on Monday night,” Pellage said. “Coach (Will) Muschamp was the coach that offered me. He was telling me that he liked my style of play and he liked how I play offensive line. He sees me as an offensive tackle.”

The offer from Florida was coming for Pellage sooner than later but he thought it wouldn’t be until he was on campus next weekend.

“It was really excited to get the offer from Florida,” Pellage said. “I wasn’t really expecting it this soon. I thought they were going to wait until when I came up for their junior day next weekend.”

When Pellage steps foot on campus next weekend he has an idea of the things he wants to see during the junior day visit.

“I want to get a better look at the campus on junior day,” Pellage said. “I want to see what all they have to offer and meet all of the coaches and see the football facilities.”

Pellage knows a good bit about the Florida Gators, his favorite childhood team, and plans to use the junior day visit to learn more about the school he grew up watching.

“I grew up a Florida fan so I know a good bit about them already,” Pellage said. “I know they have great academics and I know they are going to have a better year this year than last year on the field.”

Despite holding double digit offers already Pellage plans to wait a while before he names any leaders in his recruitment.

“Right now everybody is even,” Pellage said. “I think it’s way too early to do favorites in recruiting right now.”

Besides visiting Florida on February 22nd Pellage also has plans to see several other instate schools plus, maybe a few out of state schools as well.

“I’m going to visit Florida and Florida State soon,” Pellage said. “I’m also going to visit South Carolina, Miami, UCF and I’ve already visited USF a couple of times. I may go out of state for a few more visits as well.”
