Cajuste names Florida as leader

As recruiting hits the home stretch before National Signing Day, the Gators are hoping to add two more offensive linemen in their class of 2014. Tackle Yodny Cajuste (6-6, 270, Miramar, FL High) took an official to Florida this past weekend and now has the Gators up top.

“Florida is my new leader because the official was great,” Cajuste said. “I liked the campus and the atmosphere a lot. The players were also really cool but overall it was great all around.”

Cajuste met with Will Muschamp this past weekend, who talked about how badly the Gators want him in the Class of 2014.

“Coach Muschamp said he wanted to be a Gator,” Cajuste said. “He preached that he wanted me to be a tackle for the Florida Gators next year.”

Mike Summers was hired as Florida’s offensive line coach during the dead period so this was the first time that Cajuste was able to meet the Gators’ new assistant coach.

“Coach Summers and I had a one-on-one meeting during the visit,” Cajuste said. “He was showing the offensive line schemes and stuff. I got a long with him great and picked up on the schemes quickly. I liked him and he really knows what he’s talking about.”

Will Muschamp likes to pair players with host that are from their area and that is exactly what happened with Cajuste.

“My host was Roderick Johnson,” Cajuste said. “Roderick is a cool guy and funny guy. He told me that if I come to Florida that I’m going to have to work hard and compete every day or I will lose my spot on the depth chart.”

Although Florida is now his leader, Cajuste still plans to take a visit next weekend and maybe one more before deciding on a school.

“I plan to visit West Virginia next weekend still,” Cajuste said. “I plan to do it before signing day unless I take another visit on January 31st and then I will have to make a decision on signing day.”

Will Muschamp and Travaris Robinson are scheduled to visit Cajuste this week for an in-home visit.

  1. Andrew this is very good for the Gators. I wonder how he would have taken it if they handed him list of Charlie Strong things the Texas player have to abide by to play at Texas under the Charlie Strong new culture for Texas football players. Do you think Charlie can pull this off without having a lot of problems?

    I would like for Muschamp implement this culture at the University of Florida. This make feel like Foley made a big mistake not hiring Charlie for Florida.
