Will Muschamp and his staff like to evaluate prospects in person before offering a scholarship. That is especially true for offensive lineman.
On Saturday the Gators watched 2015 Tampa (Fla.) Plant offensive lineman Jake Fruhmorgen work out and decided to give some good news afterwards.
“After the camp coach (Will) Muschamp told me to come up to his office,” Fruhmorgen said. “When I went to his office he told me that he wanted to offer me a scholarship to Florida. He said he wants to continuing building a relationship with me since I’m young and just a junior.”
For the 6-foot-5, 256-pound Fruhmorgen, the opportunity to work out with offensive line coach Tim Davis was something he enjoyed.
“I really liked working with coach Davis,” Fruhmorgen said. “I liked his coaching style a lot and liked the way he was teaching drills and stuff. Florida was different because we did some conditioning stuff and it also had a ton of intensity around the camp. Coach Davis taught a lot of technique and drills that we can do to get better.”
Fruhmorgen has also paid close attention to Florida’s offense over the past few years and there are a few things he likes.
“I really like the balance of the Florida offense,” Fruhmorgen said. “I like how they have a really good running game but mix in the passing game as well. For an offensive lineman, I like the athletic ability that their offensive lineman have and how they focus on passing protection a lot because I think that is the strength of my game. I think that Florida is heading in the right direction as a program and on offense.”
For Fruhmorgen, he lives in Tampa but he has family connections to another SEC program.
“My dad played offensive line at Alabama,” Fruhmorgen said. “I like them but at the same time I’m open and I want to check everything out and make my own decision. Florida is closer to home so that’s a factor for me too.”
