Harrell committed to Ole Miss but looking

On Monday the Gators coaching staff offered an Ole Miss commitment in Willie Hibbler and on Tuesday the Gators offered another Rebel commitment.

This time the prospect was 2015 offensive lineman Marquel Harrell (6-3, 295, Fairburn, GA Creekside) who was excited about the offer.

“Coach (Will) Muschamp offered me on Tuesday,” Harrell said. “He said that he loved my film and how athletic I was. He said that he loved the way I pushed guys around on the field because he liked to see that out of lineman.”

Harrell doesn’t know a lot about Florida yet but what he does know about the program he likes so far.

“I like that Florida is an SEC program and that they have a good football program,” Harrell said. “They have a lot of athletes that go to the NFL too and I know now that they have a new offensive coordinator that likes to run the spread.”

Despite Florida planning on moving the spread offense that doesn’t matter to Harrell much as he just wants to win.

“I don’t care what offense they run honestly,” Harrell said. “All I want to do is win football games so if it’s the spread fine and if not fine.”

When Harrell was on the phone with Will Muschamp on Tuesday the Gators coach joked about a new play that the Gators would have to put into the playbook if Harrell became a Gator.

“Coach Muschamp wants me to play left tackle,” Harrell said. “He was joking that he was going to put a left tackle screen in the playbook for me if I come to Florida.”

Despite being committed to Ole Miss the offensive lineman says that he’s open to all schools and has visits planned to three schools.

“I’m still open to all of the schools that are recruiting me,” Harrell said. “I plan to visit Mississippi State and Ole Miss in March and hopefully visit Florida in April or before that.”
