Agbo breaks down Tuesday’s Florida Gators’ offer

Tuesday was a busy day for the Florida Gators coaching staff, not only did they have spring practice but they sent out several new offers to 2022 prospects.

Offensive lineman Malik Agbo (6-6, 295, Federal Way, WA. Todd Beamer) received one of those offers after he talked to his position coach.

“It was Coach [John] Hevesy that did,” Agbo said on the coach who offered him on Tuesday. “We talked on the phone on the offer and about football and life in general and then he offered me.”

Agbo has picked up several big offers from big schools this year but the Gators offer was one he’s excited about after talking to Hevesy.

“It means a lot especially because of the history behind the school,” he said of the offer from Florida. “My reaction was like wow, alright now I have Florida high on my board now, just simply from me and coach talking for the past couple of days.”

Offensive line coach John Hevesy didn’t go into a lot of detail with Agbo on Tuesday but did explain to him why the Gators offered him.

“We didn’t talk about anything position-wise but he did say how I fit in the offense perfectly,” Agbo said of his conversations with Hevesy. “He likes the way that I finish plays and have really quick feet, that’s major to him.”

Agbo admits he doesn’t know a lot about the Gators program but he does know enough to have a lot of interest in Florida and he wants to learn more about the program.

“I’m super interested in Florida,” he said of his interest in Florida. “Now that I have the opportunity to go to that school is awesome.”
