This weekend was a slow weekend for Florida, as they didn’t host many visitors for spring practice.
But they did host a few, and one was Lake City (Fla.) Columbia safety Trey Marshall, who also picked up a Florida offer on the visit.
“Coach (Will) Muschamp and coach (Travaris) Robinson offered me on Saturday,” Marshall said. “Coach Muschamp said he knew he was late offering me but that Florida could use me. Coach said that I play the way they like there safeties to play in that I’m physical and can play in coverage but also come down into the box. He said that he likes that I could also play man to man defense.”
The 6-foot, 192-pound Marshall said that while the offer is late from Florida, he isn’t worried about it but the Gators do have some ground to make.
“I’m not worried about it being late because it’s going to be a long process,” Marshall said. “Florida State is my leader and Georgia, Louisville and Vanderbilt are all up there and Florida will probably be up there soon but I need to build a better relationship with them first.”
There was a few things that stood out to Marshall during the visit but the intensity of the spring scrimmage was the highlight.
“The scrimmage was great, they had a high intensity out there,” Marshall said. “It was like they were practicing during the season instead of a spring practice. They were very serious and focused. Coach Robinson was out there coaching his guys up during the scrimmage and helping them out. I really liked his coaching style.”
Marshall said he doesn’t plan to make a decision until the middle of his senior season and plans to visit Florida for their spring game, as well as Florida State’s spring game the following weekend.
