Florida offers a 2016 DE

Just two years ago Will Muschamp went down to Fort Lauderdale to recruit defensive lineman Joey Bosa. That attempt was unsuccessful as Bosa later signed with Urban Meyer and Ohio State.

While the elder Bosa slipped away, Muschamp is trying his hand with another Bosa this time its 2016 defensive end Nick Bosa (6-2, 215, Fort Lauderdale, FL St. Thomas Aquinas) — Joey’s little brother — who picked up a Gators offer last week.

“Florida offered me on Thursday,” Bosa said. “Coach T-Rob was the coach that offered me. It’s a big offer and it means a lot. I visited Florida with my brother and I liked it. I like the program and it’s a big time program so it means a lot.”

Bosa visited Florida several times with his older brother Joey and that has helped him know more about the Gators program and the coaches at Florida.

“I like the defensive coaches at Florida and the weight coach Jeff Dillman there,” Bosa said. “The stadium at Florida is crazy on game days and the campus is really cool and nice. I also really like coach Muschamp as a coach and as a person too he was really great when I got to talk to him before.”

With family connections to Ohio State many would think that’s a shoe in that the younger Bosa would go to Ohio State but he Bosa says he wants what’s best for him not anyone else.

“I’m just trying to find the best fit for me,” Bosa said. “I will try to figure that out over the next few years. I don’t really have to go to Ohio State or anything but just where I fit best at.”

Bosa hasn’t visited Florida in over two years but he plans to change that this spring.

“I will probably visit for the spring game,” Bosa said.
