Raulerson enjoys Florida visit

On Wednesday, the Gators hosted two teammates from Plant High School for a spring football practice.

One of those prospects was Tampa (Fla.) Plant offensive lineman Ray Raulerson, who currently holds 13 offers but is still looking for one from Florida.

The 6-foot-4, 271-pound Raulerson had the chance to sit down with Will Muschamp and offensive line coach Tim Davis, who told Raulerson what he needed to do in order to earn offer.

“Coach Muschamp said that he wants me to come back up for a camp and workout for them,” Raulerson said. “Coach Davis said he really likes me as an inside guy because I’m right at 6-foot-4 and how I should be eating to get bigger and all of that good stuff. I’ll definitely be back to Gainesville for the first day of camp in June.”

This isn’t the first time Raulerson has visited Florida, as he visited for a game last fall, but this was his first time to visit on a non-game day.

“It was cool to see the school on an actual school day,” Raulerson said. “It was nice to see all of the campus and also to just see what it’s like every day on campus there. Before when I visited it was always a game day.”

Florida was scheduled to practice outside on Wednesday but due to the rain the Gators were forced inside to practice. Despite the weather, Raulerson still enjoyed himself.

“I had a great visit and it was still cool to see them practice even though they had to go in the O’Connell Center to practice,” Raulerson said. “It was fun to see coach Davis working the players and to just be able to watch them practice.”
