Florida offers Virginia Tech committment

Will Muschamp and the coaching staff are looking to add playmakers for the Class of 2014, including three more receivers.

On Monday night the Gators offered one of the top prospects in the southeast in Lakeland (Fla.) Kathleen receiver Javon Harrison.

“Coach Muschamp offered me,” Harrison said. “When I called them it was coach Muschamp, coach (Brent) Pease and coach (Joker) Phillips all on the phone together. They were just telling me they like me a lot and they want to come up for a spring practice or for the spring game to see what Florida has to offer.”

Harrison plans to take up the coaches on their offer to visit as soon as he can get transportation to Gainesville.

The 6-foot-2, 192-pound Harrison doesn’t know a lot about Florida right now but what he does know, he likes.

“I know they have a good offensive scheme,” Harrison said. “I have watched them play a lot and they throw the ball and they use their receivers a lot in the offense. I think I could fit into the offense pretty well at receiver.”

Harrison has been committed to Virginia Tech since last Summer but that hasn’t stopped teams from recruiting him or him listening.

“I’m still committed to Virginia Tech,” Harrison said. “But I’m not as solid as I was. I’m still looking around at other schools. I’m going to look at Florida a lot and see who fits me best. I’ll probably make my final decision on National Signing Day next year.”

Right now Harrison says he has no visits lined up, but one to Florida will happen soon.
