In desperate need of offensive linemen in the Class of 2015, Florida Gators coach Jim McElwain visited Miami offensive line commit Tyree St. Louis (6-5, 300, Bradenton, FL IMG Academy) at his school this week.

“Coach McElwain visited with me on Thursday,” St. Louis said. “It went pretty good. Coach McElwain said that the slate is clean at Florida for everyone and that he’s going to rebuild the program to be good again. He said that Florida was going to get back to the top soon.”

First impressions are huge in recruiting and McElwain definitely gave off a good impression towards the lineman.

“I liked him a lot, he’s a really good person,” St. Louis said. “He was a really down to earth person and he related to me really well. Overall it was just a good visit.”

While at IMG Academy McElwain delivered a strong message to St. Louis about how much he was needed in Gainesville.

“He said that they need offensive linemen at Florida bad,” St. Louis said. “He said that I could benefit from the depth at Florida and that I could get on the field early if I choose to come to Florida. He didn’t really say a position but just said that he sees me being a good fit there.”

St. Louis says he remains solid to Miami but a visit to Gainesville is in store for him in January.

“I’m definitely interested in Florida after meeting with Coach McElwain,” St. Louis said. “We talked about me taking an official visit to Florida in January but right now we are just trying to work out a date for that visit.”

 

INSIDERS TAKE: St. Louis has been very interested in Florida for a while now and Coach McElwain only increased that curiosity. St. Louis is a prospect to keep a close eye on moving forward.

    I thought I was told a couple of months ago that this guy was someone UF wasn’t interested in. Did this change because of the new coach or the guys that are higher on UF’s board looking like long shots to come to UF?

      For you I am sure it’s the second thought you posted. That would be the most negative way of looking at it, of course. I certainly hope UF recruits never read this page and thus never read your comments, because I fear they would think you’re an actual Gator fan and that the majority of Gator fans would be like you. A comment like that is pointless, but what else have we come to expect from you?

      I’m sorry but this made me laugh at loud.
