Capers high on the Florida Gators after being offered

Last weekend the Florida Gators had several 2020 prospects on campus for the Gators game against Idaho including a prospect they offered over the weekend.

2020 receiver Ze’Vian Capers (6-4, 200, Alpharetta, GA. Denmark) picked up an offer from Florida before his visit to Gainesville concluded last weekend.

“Coach Dan Mullen offered me on Sunday after the tour of the facilities,” Capers said of which coach from Florida offered. “He talked about his relationship with Coach [Billy] Gonzales over the last 14 years and the championship they won there. He said he loved my film and it’s what they want coming in for 2020.”

This was the first time for Capers to visit Gainesville so he got the chance to see all of what Florida had to offer on and off the field.

“The visit Saturday was great,” he said on the visit to Florida. “I got to shake hands with the coaches, they knew who I was and they were happy to see me there. We ate and then watched the game. We did the tour of the academic and football facilities on Sunday, that was awesome.”

Capers also got the chance to enjoy the atmosphere in the Swamp on Saturday during Senior Day.

“The atmosphere was good,” Capers said of the Swamp on Saturday. “I just got to get used to the music. Some of it, I knew but there was some that I’ve never heard before.”

Head coach Dan Mullen shared exactly why Florida wanted to offer Capers on Sunday as they met before the receiver left the visit.

“He said that after watching the film, he liked my ability,” he said of what Mullen told him on how he would fit into the offense. “He said he can put me anywhere on the line of scrimmage and create mismatches with my skill sets.”

Receivers coach Billy Gonzales also had a message for Capers about fitting into Florida’s offense.

“We talked about the spread offense and how I fit,” Capers said of the message from Billy Gonzales. “He wants to come and see me play basketball and see how I move and all that he saw on my film.”

Now that the Gators have offered Capers, the 2020 receiver says he likes Florida because of several different factors.

“They’re high on my list,” he said of his interest level in Florida. “I like them because of their plans to bring in a high class of 2020 prospects other than myself and the new plans for football facilities.”

Despite having over a year before Capers has to make a decision, the receiver says a few schools are standing out to him early on.

“It’s early in the process but I don’t plan to make my decision until after I take my five official visits,” Capers said. “Schools that have stood out are Clemson, Florida, South Carolina, and Arkansas. Things will change after I visit other schools such as Syracuse and others.”
