Ladson still high on his Florida Gators commitment

The Florida Gators have had several big name prospects on campus this summer and that has included several of their current commitments.

One of those commitments that visited Florida was 2019 receiver Frank Ladson (6-4, 170, Miami, FL. South Dade) who had a laid back visit to Gainesville.

“It was great, I felt good being back,” Ladson said of his Florida visit. “I just talk to the coaches and chilled out and watched the camp.”

While on campus Ladson got to talk to his area recruiter, defensive backs Corey Bell and that have developed a solid relationship with each other.

“Coach Bell was just glad to have me back,” he said. “I’m probably closest to Coach Bell and we have a great relationship with each other. He makes me feel at home and it’s a great time.”

Receivers coach Kerry Dixon also spent time with Ladson during the visit and explained to him how the Gators plan to use him once he gets to Gainesville.

“Coach Dixon just talked about football and how I’ve been,” Ladson said of his talks with Dixon. “He just tells me he sees me stretching the field and going up and making those 50/50 balls. They just see me being a threat on the offensive side of the ball.

Ladson says the Gators showed him a good time but also admits that he’s still listening to other schools.

“It felt great being back there, I love it up there,” he said. “My commitment is still very high, I love it up there, it’s like home. But I’m keeping my recruitment open for now.”

One of those schools that Ladson is listening to is Miami who he recently visited but he plans to return to Gainesville again next month.

“Miami is coming after me the hardest,” Ladson said. “I’m planning on visiting Florida for Friday Night Lights and that’s the only one set up for now.”
