The Florida coaching staff spent the majority of their day in the state of California on Monday visiting top prospects.
Offensive coordinator Brent Pease was one of the coaches in California. Pease made a stop by La Mirada high school in California.
“Coach Pease was by the school early this morning (Monday),” Mike Moschetti said (La Mirada Head Coach). “He watched our team workout in the weight room. He was really looking at tight end Tyler Luata, receiver Dallis Todd and 2015 quarterback Kevin Dillman.”
The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Luata is one of Florida’s top targets at the tight end position, a position of need. According to Moschetti, Luata is listenting to the Gators.
“I know he was excited to see coach Pease here today,” Moschetti said. “He told me that he is very interested in Florida and the Gators for a number of reason including academics. Right now Tyler is planning his unofficial and official visits out.”
For the 6-foot-5, 205-pound Todd he is interested in the Gators but things will be tougher after last week.
“Dallis committed to Oklahoma last week,” Moschetti said. “He was also very interested in Florida before he committed and I think he’s still listening to them. He may also take a visit to Gainesville but like Tyler, he is planning his visits out now for the summer and fall.”
For the 6-foot-4, 205-pound quarterback, Dillman has already had 16 scholarship offers and a new one could be coming soon.
“Coach Pease told me that he was really impressed with Kevin,” Moschetti said. “I think an offer is coming soon for him from the Gators. He was excited to see coach Pease there at the workout.”
For Moschetti, he says the entire coaching staff and players at the loaded La Mirada High School respect Florida and the coaching staff.
“I know Gainesville is a long way from California,” Moschetti said. “But we have a ton interest in Florida and the upmost respect for their staff and team. They have a lot of tradition down there and one of the top academic schools in the country.”
