The Gators coaching staff signed a great class of linebackers in the Class of 2013 but the staff is looking to add a few more in 2014.
One of the top targets in the class is Jackson (Al.) High linebacker Gavin Bryant who plans to see Gainesville this upcoming weekend.
“I plan to visit Gainesville this Saturday and Sunday,” Bryant said. “Me and my coach are coming down. I’m looking to see how the coaches interact with the players and how the facilities are and the campus looks. Coach (Will) Muschamp has told me that Florida is the best so I’m looking forward to seeing what that means.”
Heading into the visit the 6-foot-2, 225-pound Bryant has high expectations for his visit to Gainesville.
“My expectations are always high when I visit an SEC school,” Bryant said. “So I’m ready to see if Florida is like the others and see what’s up with the Gators. I’m sure everything is top notch there so I’m ready to see it.”
Bryant has been in contact with Florida quite a bit during his recruiting process and even talked to one of the coaches on Tuesday.
“I talked to coach (Jeff) Choate on Tuesday,” Bryant said. “He told me that he is ready to see me workout and after the camp he wants me to sit down with coach Muschamp and coach (D.J.) Durkin and talk to them about how I would fit into the defense at Florida.”
Being from Alabama it would seem that Alabama or Auburn would be the team to beat for Bryant but he says that’s not necessarily the case.
“Alabama is kind of a leader but not really,” Bryant said. “It is what it is. I’m ready to take my visits and see what the other SEC schools have to offer. I’m kind of thinking that I may want to go out of state and break the mold of staying in state because you’re a top player.”
