The Gators currently only have one verbal commitment in the Class of 2015 and that prospect is safety Deontai Williams (6-0, 179, Jacksonville, FL Trinity Christian). Williams was on campus on Saturday for junior day with a few of his teammates and enjoyed his visit.

“It was great, awesome day,” Williams said. “I’m learning new things; they taught me what they do and what I’m going to be playing in the future and all of that. It was great.”

Williams, much like the rest of the Trinity Christian prospects, has visited Florida several times so Saturday was just the usual day in Gainesville.

“I didn’t see nothing really new today,” Williams said. “Mainly just stuff I’ve already seen and they were telling me how I would fit in here. I’m gonna play everything, corner, safety, nickel. All of that because I’m physical and I can do all of it.”

After Williams got the usual campus tour and academic tour the 2015 commit had the opportunity to sit down with Will Muschamp.

“He was telling me that they really like me because I’m physical,” Williams said. “He said I can do a lot of things and they’re looking for more DB’s.”

Now that Williams has committed to Florida he says that his main target is linebacker Jeffrey Holland who was on campus with him on Saturday.

“He’s leaning to Florida and somewhere else too. It’s a fight,” Williams said. “I tell him we can do a lot of stuff, be great. I tell him we can be first round draft picks [here at Florida.]”
