Will Muschamp Camp Preview

It’s officially summer  in Gainesville, which means only one thing; prospects visiting campus in bunches for unofficial visits.

The Florida coaching staff will start their camp series this Saturday but on Friday the Gators will host their first 7-on-7 high school tournament.

Several big name teams are expected to be on campus for the 7 on 7 tournament including Armwood, Booker T, Tampa Bay Tech, Fletcher High and University School in Fort Lauderdale.

Now that Florida is hosting a 7-on-7 tournament it will give the coaches a chance to scout many more prospects as well scout some prospects that usually wouldn’t work out in a typical camp setting.

Here are some of the prospects scheduled to participate in the 7 on 7 tournament on Friday night.

Receiver Deon Cain (6-1, 190, Tampa, FL Tampa Bay Tech) who just recently committed to Clemson.

Receiver Antoinio Calloway (6-0, 175, Miami, FL Booker T)- Calloway just recently picked up a Florida offer and the Gators lead.

Safety DaVante Davis (6-2, 188, Miami, FL Booker T)- Davis was committed to Syracuse but he decommitted after picking up offers from Alabama, Florida State and many others this spring. Florida may offer this weekend.

Receiver Kalif Jackson (6-4, 195, Neptune Beach, FL Fletcher)- Jackson doesn’t hold a Florida offer currently.


After the 7 on 7 tournament is completed on Friday night the Gators will turn their attention to Will Muschamp’s football camp that will start on Saturday and many more prospects are scheduled to arrive on campus for that camp.

Here’s a list of a few players that are scheduled to visit Florida this weekend or the first part of the week:

Offensive lineman Abdul Bello (6-5, 298, Montverde, FL Academy)- Bello is very high on both Florida and Florida State.

Running back Javarius Davis (5-10, 173, Jacksonville, FL Ed White)- Davis is looking for a Florida offer but recently he’s seen his stock rise by picking up offers from Notre Dame and USC.

Receiver Van Jefferson (6-1, 166, Brentwood, TN Ravenwood)- This will be Jefferson’s first trip to Florida and the Gators need a good visit to catch Ohio State and Tennessee.

Quarterback Sheriron Jones (6-2, 189, Moreno Valley, CA Rancho Verde)- Jones is making his first trip to Gainesville and he’s on commitment watch.

Offensive lineman Tyler Jordan (6-5, 270, Jacksonville, FL Bishop Kenny)- Jordan is a Gator commit and will be recruiting hard for Florida this weekend.

Tight end Camrin Knight (6-4, 220, Tallahassee, FL Lincoln)- Knight is a Gator commit but he will work out at the camp.

Offensive lineman Jalen Merrick (6-5, 295, New Smyrna Beach, FL High)- This will be Merrick’s second visit to campus since March.

Linebacker Adonis Thomas (6-4, 217, Lawrenceville, GA Central Gwinnett)- Thomas is a Gator lean and he will be in town from Sunday to Tuesday.

Cornerback Jalen Thompson (5-11, 170, Mobile, AL St. Paul’s)- Thompson grew up rooting for Florida and this will be his first trip to Gainesville.

  1. It would be nice to get a linebacker out of this camp, that is probably the position of highest need since none were signed last year and two from the previous year, Anzalone and Rolin, have yet to show anything promising on the field. Also UF will lose some linebackers next year, even Morrison may leave early. I know that he may not be a good player, but we saw last year that doesn’t really matter to some of the egomaniacs that are athletes. Purifoy, Roberson, and Powell were not good on the field and that didn’t seem to have any factor in their decision to go “get paid.”
