Florida Gators recruiting commit Quincy Lenton (6-0, 195, Meridian, MS High) is one of the forgotten pieces in the recruiting class due to his long loyalty to the Gators.

Lenton, who showed his skills during the Alabama/Mississippi All-Star game, took his official visit to Gainesville over the weekend.

“It was pretty good, I had a good time with the players and coaches,” Lenton said. “I got to visit the campus more, I got to see what the coaching staff was like and what the trainers were like. I got to check out the dorms and just see how everything was.”

A current Florida defensive back hosted the Mississippi defensive back during the visit and the two got along great.

“Quincy Wilson was my host,” he said. “He’s a cool guy, real laid back and a player that feels like he can play. Really that’s how all of the players think so he was cool.”

Defensive coordinator Geoff Collins has been the lead recruiter for Lenton since his days at Mississippi State and he had a message for the defensive back over the weekend.

“Coach Collins was just telling me what it means to be apart of DBU [defensive back university],” Lenton said. “He was telling me his expectations for me and that he wants me to come in and make an impact. He said he wants me to come in and play but he said it was up to me whether or not I played early or not.”

Lenton also got the chance to sit down with Gators head coach Jim McElwain and it was more a laid back, relaxed talk with the headman.

“I talked to Coach McElwain and he just wanted to make me feel comfortable,” he said. “He talked more about off the football field, like education. He talked more about life after football to me.”

Lenton hasn’t visited Gainesville as much as other Florida Gators recruiting commits but he still feels comfortable in Gainesville.

“Florida feels like home for me,” Lenton said. “My dad loved the visit and my mom did too. They liked the coaches and how they look after me. They said they feel comfortable leaving me up there with them.”

The Mississippi prospect has never wavered from his commitment to Florida and this weekend he decided to wear the recruiting hat.

“We was trying to get Kristian Fulton this weekend,” he said. “He told us it was LSU and Florida but hopefully we can get him to join DBU and play by us next year. He was with us a lot.”

Lenton will sign his letter of intent on Wednesday and he feels like this class of 2016 for Florida is going to be a good one.

“This class definitely has a lot of talent and we’re going to come in and make an impact,” Lenton said. “I think we’re going to make an impact very quickly at Florida.”
