Gamble shines at future home: Florida Gators recruiting

The Florida Gators recruiting class had two of its commits in town this past Friday night for the 7-on-7 tournament that was held on the Gators’ practice fields.

Gators tight end commit Kemore Gamble (6-3, 220, Miami, FL Southridge) was one of them on campus and he had a great night at what he calls “home.”

“It’s feel great to be back home where I’m supposed to at playing,” Gamble said of playing on the Gators field. “This most definitely a look at what’s to come for me in my future. I feel like I’m at home here.”

Receivers coach Kerry Dixon is the main recruiter of Gamble and the two talked about him fitting in at Gainesville.

“The coaches are telling me that they see me as an h-back in their offense,” he said of where he will play in college. “Coach Dixon said that I have an advantage of everybody because I’m quicker than the linebackers. He said that with my size and speed I have an advantage.”

In April, Gamble made the news official when he committed and he says that it was an easy decision for him then.

“I’ve been liking Florida since I was kid so I knew my heart was here at Florida,” Gamble said on why he ended up committing to Florida. “My mom’s heart was here too, so why not go ahead and commit to them. I just knew that Florida was my home for the future.”

Head coach Jim McElwain watched Gamble dominant Georgia cornerback commit William Poole during one game and after camp was over he shared a message with the tight end commit.

“Coach McElwain just tells me to focus in the classroom and take care of my family,” he said of McElwain’s message to him. “We have a great relationship with each other and talk a lot.”

Gamble continues to recruit his teammates to Florida and he says that he will return to Gainesville soon.

“Tuesday we’re going to Mississippi State for a camp,” Gamble said. “I’m solid to Florida and I’m going to visit again for Friday Night Lights for camp.”

The tight end commit’s team didn’t win the tournament, but he had an impressive game including multiple touchdowns and two point conversions. Gamble played against Poole’s team in only one game and scored three touchdowns against the Georgia commit.

INSIDERS TAKE: Gamble is very solid to Florida as he was joking and talking to most of the Gators coaches throughout the night on Friday. Gamble also showed off why the Gators are so high on him, as he consistently beat cornerbacks when lined up outside and beat linebackers when lined up inside. The one thing that stands out about Gamble is his ball skills for a guy his size, as he takes the ball out of the air at its highest point.
