Bronson happy with Cook’s commitment

Fort Myers (Fla.) Dunbar receiver Ryeshene Bronson was one of four Florida commitments to visit Florida last Saturday.

“It went good, I enjoyed it,” Bronson said. “I liked what the offense was doing out there but I think the receivers need to get better. They really weren’t doing a good job of getting open in the one on one’s. Coach (Joker) Phillips is doing a good job with them and he is getting them better out there.”

The 6-foot-3, 182-pound Bronson has been very impressed with new receivers coach Joker Phillips on the few times he has watched him in practice.

“I’ve seen him coach on the field now twice,” Bronson said. “He is a great coach and he is doing a good job with those guys. He has a good style of coaching and him being a former receiver, he knows how to coach those guys. I think he can make me a better person and a better receiver at Florida.”

Bronson was able to talk to a few of the coaches while on his visits and they told him how happy they were have him visit and they want Bronson to come by more often.

On Saturday the Gators got a commitment from running back Dalvin Cook, who Bronson knows and likes a lot.

“I’m glad we got Dalvin (Cook),” Bronson said. “I’m real happy about that, he will take some of the stress off me and the receivers. I’ve seen him play a few times and I think he is the best running back in the state of Florida. He will definitely help the offense at Florida.”

Bronson has been committed to Florida since last summer and nothing has changed for him but he will take a few visits this summer.

“I’m solid to Florida,” Bronson said. “But I want to visit South Carolina, Auburn and Tennessee this summer sometime. I will also visit Florida this summer.”
