Florida’s 2013 commitments have been recruiting other players since the day they committed to the Gators.
During the Under Armour All-America Game on Jan. 4, Florida’s commitments spent their time off the field talking to other All-Americans about Florida.
The UF commitments did convince one prospect to visit Florida and that is Loganville (Ga.) Grayson defensive end Robert Nkemdiche.
“He is planning on visiting Florida this weekend,” Grayson coach Mickey Conn said. “He has made friends with Keanu Neal, Vernon Hargreaves and Kelvin Taylor and those guys are supposed to be down there this weekend, too.”
Most experts believe Ole Miss is the leader for the 6-foot-5, 260-pound Nkemdiche, because his brother Denzel Nkemdiche plays for the Rebels.
But Conn doesn’t believe that this official visit to Florida is just a fun visit.
“I know he wants to hang out with those guys,” Conn said. “But I don’t think he would drive six hours to Gainesville for just a fun or relaxing visit.”
Conn said that Nkemdiche will be accompanied on his trip to Florida by his father, Sunday Nkemdiche.
This is the first of likely two official visits Nkemdiche will take before announcing his decision Feb. 6 on National Signing Day.
“I know he plans on visiting Ole Miss next weekend,” Conn said. “After that, I don’t think he has any more visits planned. I’m not sure about LSU at this time.”
