Caston blessed to be offered by the Florida Gators

On Monday, the Florida Gators handed out several new offers including a few to out of state prospects.

2021 safety Cisco Caston (6-2, 190, Weatherford, TX. High) was one of those guys that picked up an offer from the Gators.

“The defensive back coach, Coach [Torrian] Gray did,” Caston said on which coach from Florida offered him. “I didn’t get to talk to him much because he was talking to my other coaches about me.”

Caston was shocked to hear the news from defensive backs coach Torrian Gray on Monday.

“Oh, it means a lot to me,” he said on what the offer means to him. “My reaction was like there’s no way that this is happening to me. I’m extremely blessed to be in this position.”

Gray explained to Caston on Monday why the Gators wanted to offer him and what they like about his game.

“He said he offered me because he liked my size,” Caston said on why Gray wanted to offer him. “He said my speed, my competitiveness and my coming down and laying the hammer on some guys were things he liked. He told my coaches that they my explosiveness and how I trigger to the ball.”

Caston hasn’t visited Gainesville yet but he does know a few things about the Gators program and history.

“I know the most that Heisman trophy winners went there,” he said on what he knows about Florida. “I know they won three national championships and I heard that they’re known for home games getting crazy.”


INSIDERS TAKE: Caston trains with the same coaches and Jahari Rogers did and he plans to talk to Rogers about the Gators and he plans to visit Gainesville soon.
