One of the big keys for head coach Jim McElwain and the Florida Gators in the class of 2016 is to find big time playmakers at the receiver position and during the spring the Gators have visited several such players.

Last week receivers coach Kerry Dixon went to visit receiver Binjimen Victor (6-4, 173, Coconut Creek, FL High) and according to Victor it was a good visit.

“It was nice to see coach Dixon at our garnet and gold game,” Victor said. “It went well and he got a chance to watch me play some. He couldn’t say anything to me but he talked to my coaches and told them that he would be in contact with me.”

Dixon and Victor have been trying to build a relationship over the last few months and Dixon has been delivering a pretty solid message to the talented receiver.

“Our relationship is going good and we’re working on building a better relationship,” Victor said. “He just basically tells me to come to Florida and make an impact at the receiver position. He said that I would be a good fit on the outside and he says that I will be a good fit in the offense at Florida.”

Victor is one of the Gators top targets at the position and that the love the staff at Florida has shown is something that he likes about Florida.

“I really like the coaching staff and the system they’re going to run at Florida,” Victor said. “They have shown me a lot of interest and made me feel wanted there.”

With spring ball coming to a close Victor is trying to plan visits to colleges and he’s trying to narrow down his list.

“I’m not sure when I’ll visit Florida again but it will be soon,” Victor said. “I’m trying to get to a few other schools but right now there’s no leader but I will probably make my decision during the fall or if not then it’ll be on signing day.”

 

INSIDERS TAKE: Victor says that nobody leads right now but the Gators are in good shape as Victor heads out to other visits this summer.

    Victor is a very important recruit for UF. He fits a position of need and is a tall receiver. The current tall receiver, Ahmad Fullwood, has been disappointing so far in his career at UF. It’s to be expected that Florida’s only proven receiver, Demarcus Robinson, who may be an All-American, will leave for the NFL after this season, so it’s important for UF to get guys like Victor.
