WR Truitt in ‘shock’ to meet Muschamp

Monroe (Ga.) Area receiver Stanton Truitt visited Florida last Thursday, and while on the visit, picked up an offer from the Gators.

“Coach (Will) Muschamp offered me,” Truitt said. “He said that he really liked my film a lot when he watched and that he liked my personality. He said that he liked the way I carried myself when I walked in the door.”

Thursday was a packed visit for the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Truitt, as he met several players and coaches while touring the campus.

“I got to meet Trey Burton that was cool,” Truitt said. “I got to bond with several of the coaches and see the campus. The campus I really liked and the academic department blew me away. Right now, I’m trying to decide between criminal justice and physical therapy for my major in college.”

The Gators offered Truitt as a slot receiver, and he had a chance to sit down with new receivers coach Joker Phillips.

“I got to talk a lot to coach (Derek) Lewis and coach (Joker) Phillips,” Truitt said. “I liked coach Phillips a lot, his personality and coaching is a different level than others. His style of coaching is good and you can see how he can get you better as a player. You have to respect him after you talk to him and a lot of that is because of his experience.”

While meeting with Phillips, Truitt got the chance to watch film and see how he would be used if he was to attend Florida.

Truitt was a surprised and shocked when he got a chance to meet and talk with Muschamp.

“It was a big shock to finally meet him after seeing him on TV,” Truitt said. “I thought very highly of him and have a lot of respect for him. The tone he talks to you in is different but good.”

Right now, Truitt claims no leader but said he really likes Florida and plans to return to Gainesville for the spring game as well as a camp.
