There was a packed house in Gainesville on Monday as over a dozen prospects from South Florida visited the Florida Gators for spring practice.
One of those visitors on campus Monday was tight end Kemore Gamble (6-3, 220, Miami, FL Southridge) and he paid a lot of attention to his position group during practice.
“I was looking at the tight ends and how they move around,” Gamble said. “I was looking at how they motion and stuff like that. They use the tight ends a lot and motion a lot.”
Gamble got the chance to watch some game film with tight ends coach Greg Nord and the tight end believe the Gators offense will be improved in 2016.
“Coach Nord showed me a couple of films of how they used #83 [Jake McGee],” he said. “I think the offense should go far this year with the freshmen quarterbacks coming in. I watched Feleipe [Franks] during practice.”
Gamble plays a lot of receiver in high school, but he sees his game and body style resembled by tight end at Florida.
“The tight ends at Florida are athletic like me,” Gamble said. “They move around and motion a lot. They spread out wide sometimes and just go out and catch the ball.”
Earlier this month Gamble decommitted from the Miami Hurricanes and now he just wants to relax while he looks for two things in a school.
“I’m slowing things down, there was too much going on,” he said of his recruitment process. “It’s real crazy, every day people are asking me questions. You have to take a step back sometimes but I’m looking for education and who shows me more interest.”
The Florida Gators also have something that Gamble wants to see as he his future plans outside of football.
“I want to see the education and see if they have a drama major,” Gamble said. “If I don’t make it in football then I want to be a actor. I want to be the next Marlon Wayans.”
The South Florida tight end is already thinking about schools that could receive an official from him and he has three in mind so far.
“I want to take my official visits during football season,” he said. “Right now Florida, North Carolina and North Carolina State are teams I want to see. I’ll probably be back up for Florida’s spring game.”
INSIDERS TAKE: Florida is looking to take two tight ends in this class and Gamble is one of the top targets at the position. Right now Florida is in decent shape with Gamble but teams like Alabama and Miami are both in the mix with Gamble.
