The Florida Gators are in host pursuit of receiver Tyree Cleveland (6-3, 180, Houston, TX Westfield) and this past week he was one of the best at his position during the Under Armour All-American game.

Cleveland was able to dominate a lot of the practices, as well as pick up some tips from some very knowledgeable coaches.

“It was a great experience,” Cleveland said. “I had a chance to go out and compete against some of the best players in the world. I came out here and I learned a lot of stuff. Getting coached up by NFL coaches and players was the best thing other than competing out here”

The Houston Cougars commit dominated the one-on-one portion of practice several days and he says that was the most fun he had all week.

“The practice was the most fun part to me because you had a chance to compete at every stage,” he said. “To be able to compete against the best cornerbacks in the country was a great experience.”

Being committed to Houston didn’t stop other players from trying to give Cleveland a sales pitch for their team during downtime from practice.

“Yeah, they’ve been trying to recruit me,” Cleveland said when asked if others were recruiting him. “I just listen to them and at the end of the day, when signing day comes I’ll make my final decision.”

Right now those players are talking to a Houston receiver commit that likes the Houston head coach Tom Herman a lot.

“That guy there is a very smart guy, intelligent and he wants to win championships,” he said of Tom Herman at Houston. “He’s just trying to bring the program up.”

The Florida Gators are trying to flip Cleveland and the Gators will get their chance on January 29th when he takes his official visit to Florida and he knows what he wants to see out of the visit.

“Most importantly I would say trust out of everything,” Cleveland said. “All my visits I’m trying to build trust and feel comfortable. I’ll take a lot of notes.”

INSIDERS TAKE: A lot of buzz around Cleveland this week was that the Florida Gators had a legit shot at the big time receiver who was the best receiver for most of the week. I expect the Gators to push hard for him over the month of January.
