Tight end Daniel Imatorbhebhe (6-4, 220, Suwanee, GA. North Gwinnett) officially visited the Florida Gators for the Kentucky gam. During that visit he was a commit to Missouri but that has recently changed.
“I decomitted from Missouri last week because I feel I needed to make the best decision for me,” Imatorbhebhe said. “A lot of schools have called me since I did that but I haven’t really talked to them because I’m focusing on my games right now. I have talked to Florida since then though.”
Imatorbhehbe’s main recruiter is tight ends coach Derek Lewis and the tight end says the two talk quite often, as Lewis reminds him of the need for playmakers in Gainesville.
“I talk to Coach D-Lew weekly and sometimes more,” Imatorbhebhe said. “He just has the same message for me. He just checks in on me and tells me how they will use me and that they want me. He said that they need playmakers in this class.”
Lewis isn’t the only coach from Florida that talks to Imatorbhehbe. Will Muschamp has called the Georgia tight end a few times to check in with him as well.
“I talk to Coach Muschamp some too and I talked to him last week actually,” Imatorbhebhe said. “He just ask me where Florida stands and that he wants me get back down again this fall. He said that he enjoys having me down there and he likes me a lot.”
Imatorbhebhe is focused on his North Gwinnett right now and that has slowed down his visit schedule some, but he is trying to plan his last four official visits out soon.
“I don’t have any other visits planned right now,” Imatorbhebhe said. “It’s tough to say who I’ll visit this fall or not. I definitely plan on visiting Florida again. I was planning on visiting Florida this weekend for the LSU game but I have a senior event.”
One thing is for certain and that’s that Imatorbhebhe has to make a decision in the next few months but he isn’t rushing it.
“I don’t have a timetable for my decision because I’m trying to make sure I’m 100% certain on my decision, I mean the deadline is December because I’m an early enrollee,” he said. “I don’t want to be in the position I was last time again. I want to be excited and happy about where I’m going this time. I don’t want it to feel like a job but I want to be happy and me be able to enjoy my time at the school.”
INSIDERS TAKE: I still feel like Florida leads here for Imatorbhebhe because his family likes the Gators and it’s also close to home. Getting the tight end back in Gainesville again will only help solidify the Gators lead.
