On Tuesday the Gators hosted several prospects on campus for unofficial visits, including a top notch offensive lineman.

St. Petersburg (Fla.) Lakewood offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn enjoyed a stop in Gainesville on Tuesday afternoon.

“The visit went well, I enjoyed it,” Wynn said. “I got to tour the campus and see the facilities and talk to coach (Will) Muschamp and coach (Tim) Davis. The campus looked good as usual, as I have seen it several times now.”

The strength and conditioning program at Florida impressed the 6-foot-2, 269-pound Wynn.

“I was really impressed by the strength and conditioning staff,” Wynn said. “They showed me how they transform players from the time they get to Florida until now. You will hear about how a player came in weighing one weight and losing weight but I was able to see pictures of that and it was cool. Coach (Jeff) Dillman was also telling me some techniques to use in the weight room.”

After Wynn had the chance to see the weight program, he got an opportunity to talk with Will Muschamp and a good friend of his.

“Coach Muschamp was telling me reasons of why I should come to Florida,” Wynn said. “He said that he really wanted me to come to Florida. At the tail end of us talking, Dante (Fowler) showed up and he was telling me the same thing. It was good to see him today on campus.”

If meeting with Dillman and the strength staff wasn’t the highlight of Wynn’s trip, it would have had to be his time with Tim Davis.

“I got to watch some film with coach Davis today,” Wynn said. “He was explaining some things to me and drawing up some plays for me. He was telling me some keys for picking up linebackers and how to pick up a defense. It was good to sit down with him and build that relationship, he taught me a lot in only 20 minutes or so.”

Wynn has made headlines lately by saying he might want to play his college ball outside of the state of Florida, but that may not be the case anymore.

“I plan to come back to Florida for Friday Night Lights and bring my parents with me,” Wynn said. “I want to see what they think about Florida and go from there. I’m really not sure about the out of state or in-state thing anymore but today’s visit helped Florida.”
