Baugh sets an official visit with the Florida Gators following Saturday’s visit

The Florida Gators had dozens of recruits in town for Saturday’s game against Arkansas including several prospects committed elsewhere.

Arkansas running back commit Jadan Baugh (6-0, 214, Decatur, GA. Columbia) was in town and liked the energy in the Swamp.

“It was good, great atmosphere,” Baugh said on his visit to Florida on Saturday. “I love seeing the game, it was very competitive, and they just made me very excited about watching the game today.”

Baugh has watched several Florida games on TV but he was happy to see the Gators’ running game in-person on Saturday.

“It was great, like I just told Coach [Jabbar] Juluke, I loved seeing it in-person,” he said on seeing Florida’s running game on Saturday. “I can actually see how everything works behind the scenes, on TV you can just see highlights, but I like seeing the whole game. It made me excited about what’s to come in the future.”

This is the second time for Baugh to visit Gainesville and meet with the coaches and he says the relationship is strong and he likes the bond he has with the staff.

“Good, when I met him the first time it felt genuine and again today [Saturday] it was genuine,” Baugh said on meeting with Juluke. “There’s real love and a bond between us and I like that. My parents feel the same way.”

Head coach Billy Napier also met with Baugh on Saturday and explained to him why he’s a priority for the Gators going forward.

“Coach Napier and a bunch of other recruiters,” he said on the other coaches he got to talk to on Saturday. “They mentioned to me that they’re making me a priority and they definitely want me to get back here and come see them.”

The Gators did enough on Saturday to get an official visit from Baugh set to return to Gainesville as the Gators continue to push for the Razorbacks commit.

“December 8th, 9th, and 10th will be my official visit,” Baugh on when he will return to Florida. “That’s it for right now.”

Two teams right now are pushing hard to flip Baugh from Arkansas and one of them is the Gators.

“Yeah, Florida and Alabama,” he said on schools pushing the hardest for the flip. “
