Last week, the Florida Gators coaching staff sent out a few offers to underclassmen from out of state school as the recruiting board has started to expand.
2023 running back Seth Davis (5-8, 170, Katy, TX. High) picked up an offer after he talked to the Gators’ head coach.
“Coach [Dan] Mullen talked to me,” Davis said on the coach from Florida who offered him last week. “He said I can score touchdowns and he noticed I have 39 touchdowns scores in the last two seasons. He said they were making some changes and I would be a great fit.”
Davis currently holds offers from Florida and Morgan State, but he says picking up an offer from an SEC school is big too him.
“It’s everything to me,” he said on what the offer means to him. “I knew I had SEC speed, I run a 4.39 and we only have 1 SEC school in Texas so I can’t wait to show what I can do.”
When Davis spoke with Dan Mullen last week, the head coach explained to the running back how he would fit into Florida’s offense.
“He said I would be a great quick hitter for first and second down,” Davis said on the message from Mullen. “I play one position and I will graduate early and come hit the weight room to play in the fall of 2023.”
Davis has never visited Gainesville before, but he says he likes several things about the Gators, and he knows a few things about them.
“I’m a Tim Tebow and Emmitt Smith fan,” he said on what he knows about Florida. “I love the Swamp documentary that I saw on TV. The weather and the culture of the organization is good. I like how they play two quarterbacks with power backs and speed backs.”
After picking up an offer from Florida, Davis says his interest in Florida is high as several other schools start to recruit him hard.
“9 out 10,” Davis said of his interest in Florida. “Clemson, Maryland, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and California are all recruiting me hard.”
INSIDERS TAKE: Davis said he may visit Gainesville for the FSU game, but it will depend on his playoff schedule.
