Offensive line is a position of need for Florida in the Class of 2014 and with three linemen already committed, the staff can be a little picky with prospects.
One prospect that is high on Florida’s board is Miami (Fla.) Central offensive lineman Trevor Darling who received a visit from Florida on Wednesday.
“The defensive back coach, coach (Travaris) Robinson came by today,” Darling said. “He told my coach that he wanted me to give Florida a chance and that he wants me to come up and see the school, the campus and meet everyone there. I’m going to try and visit them this summer and see everything for myself.”
The Miami commit says that Will Muschamp has relayed the same message to him about just giving Florida a chance.
Miami Central is home to Florida running back commit Davlin Cook and the 6-foot-5, 330-pound Darling says the two are good friends.
“Me and Dalvin are very good friends,” Darling said. “That’s my running back now and I would like to play with him on the next level in college but at the same time, I have to do what’s best for me and what will help me get better as a player. I do plan to visit Florida this summer with Dalvin sometime.”
A Miami commitment, Darlins said that while he is committed to the Hurricanes, he does have his eyes open to others.
“I’m committed to Miami,” Darling said. “That’s a solid commitment but I’m looking at Florida so we will see. I have to go see the campus first and meet everyone and after that I’ll go from there.”
