Brown likes Dan Mullen’s history with quarterbacks

On Wednesday, the Florida Gators offered two quarterbacks from the 2022 class and both them are from the state of Georgia.

2022 quarterback Jacurri Brown (6-4, 205, Valdosta, GA. Lowndes) was one of those who picked up an offer from the Gators after he talked to quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson.

“Coach Johnson, the quarterbacks coach called my coach and asked me to give him a call,” Brown said on which coach from Florida offered him. “After talking to him, he told me that they were offering me.”

Brown has been a frequent visitor to Gainesville already and he says a lot of that is because his family likes the Orange and Blue.

“It means a lot, my family really likes Florida,” he said on what the offer means to him. “I went to the spring game last year and I was supposed to come down on March 20th before all this came down.”

Johnson on Wednesday explained to Brown why the Gators like him and why they wanted to offer him.

“He just talks to me about football, school and what I may major in,” Brown said of the talk with Johnson. “We talked about my family, he’s a down to earth guy and he said I can fit into the offense well. He used examples like Emory [Jones], Feleipe [Franks] and how they use [Kyle] Track. They see me being a dual threat guy.

Brown is very familiar with the Gators program and he likes what Dan Mullen has been able to do with quarterbacks in the past.

“Coach Mullen had Dak Prescott, I want to play in the NFL and Dan Mullen sends quarterbacks to the NFL,” he said on what he likes and knows about Florida. “I like the tradition at Florida, it’s fast pace and pretty much like ours in high school. Our coach runs a lot of stuff like they do.”

Once the dead period is over, Brown has a few schools he wants to visit now that he has picked up several new offers.

“I want to visit Florida, Ohio State, I’m going to try to go to Oklahoma and Missouri,” Brown said on schools he wants to visit. “All of those schools are recruiting me hard.”
