The Florida Gators coaching staff spent Monday traveling to see several prospects in several different states and they traveled in a big group for the most part.
Head coach Dan Mullen spent part of Monday visiting Alabama defensive end (6=5, 269, Huntsville, AL. Lee) at his home and he showed up with four other coaches to impress the lineman.
“Coach Mullen, Coach Sal [Sunseri], Coach [Todd] Grantham, Coach [Christian] Robinson and Coach [Billy] Gonzales,” Langham said on who all visited him on Monday. “It was a good visit, we had fun together. They showed me that I was a priority because all of them came down to see me.”
Mullen made sure to explain to Langham that the Gators are in need of players like himself on the defensive line.
“He was saying that there’s a need at my position for me at Florida,” he said on Mullen’s message to him. “He said that there’s an opportunity for me to come in and play right away at defensive end.”
Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham explained to Langham how the Gators could use his skill set in the 3-4 defense.
“Coach Grantham talked to me about how he would use me,” Langham said of Grantham’s message. “He told me that he sees me as an edge rusher that can also drop back into coverage some.”
The coach that intrigued Langham the most was defensive line coach Sal Sunseri because of his background of coaching in the NFL.
“He just said that he can develop me because he’s been in the league before,” he said on Sunseri’s message to him. “He said that he knows the technique and what it takes to make it to the league. It means a lot to hear that from him.”
Now that the Gators have visited Langham, the defensive lineman plans to return the favor in two weeks when he visits Gainesville.
“I’m taking my official visit to Alabama this weekend and than I’ll be at Florida,” Langham said on official visits. “After that I’m going to Tennessee and deciding on signing day.”
