Florida offers a UNC commit

The need for secondary in the Class of 2015 is huge especially at the safety position for the Florida Gators.

Last week the Gators coaching staff handed out an offer to 2015 North Carolina defensive back commit Ronnie Harrison (6-2, 192, Tallahassee, FL Florida) who the coaches believe is a good fit for the Florida football team.

“Coach (Will) Muschamp and Coach T-Rob offered me last week from Florida,” Harrison said. “They were telling me that they were really excited about me and that they had been watching my film a lot and that they really liked it. Coach Muschamp said that he really needs guys like me to come to Florida and help them get better because I’m physical.”

Muschamp is known for playing multiple defensive backs and having players who can play multiple positions. He sees Harrison as being one of those guys to fit into his defense at different positions.

“Coach Muschamp said that I could play corner, nickel or safety because I’m athletic,” Harrison said. “I think that fits me well because Florida has a good defense that plays real swagged out. They play up-tempo and aggressive. I like that they play real cocky like.”

Despite just getting offered last week the 2015 defensive back visited Florida’s campus last month for a junior day where he met the coaches.

“I had fun during junior day with the coaches,” Harrison said. “I really liked the coaches a lot and I liked the campus too. We got to go to a basketball game and that cool and loud.”

The Tallahassee native has interest in Florida but says he remains solid to his verbal commitment at this time.

“I’m solid to North Carolina right now,” Harrison said. “I am interested in Florida though and I plan to visit Florida again this summer and for a game this fall.”
