Delp recaps his latest virtual visit with the Florida Gators

Tight ends coach Tim Brewster has been very successful landing tight ends since he arrived in Gainesville last year and the success on the field will only help his cause.

2022 tight end Oscar Delp (6-5, 220, Cumming, GA. West Forsyth) is one of Brewster’s biggest targets this cycle and last week the Gators hosted him on a virtual visit.

“The virtual was great,” Delp said of his virtual visit with Florida last week. “I got to see the campus and all of the facilities and talk to the coaches.”

Brewster has help as head coach Dan Mullen is recruiting Delp hard as well and the two of them have a strong message for the tight end.

“They’re recruiting me pretty hard,” he said of Florida. “I talk with Coach [Tim] Brewster and Coach Mullen the most from Florida. The main message to me has been that they were going to make me a better player and a better person and get me ready for life after football.”

Delp has a physical tight end who can create mismatches in the passing game and that’s something that Brewster has told him as he has compared him to another Florida tight end.

“He tells me that I’m a very athletic tight end and that I would be a great fit for them,” Delp said on the message from Brewster. “He sees me playing a role similar to how they used Kyle Pitts last year.”

After the virtual visit, Delp says his interest in Florida is high for two reasons in particular.

“I am very interested in Florida and I can’t wait to get out there for a visit,” he said of Florida. “I love the academics and how they use the tight ends in their offense.”

Delp will see a lot of campuses during virtual visits but getting feet on the ground at these schools is a key for the tight end in his decision-making process.

“I don’t plan on making many visits on my own unless I have to,” Delp said on if he plans to visit schools on his own. “I’m hoping the dead period opens up so I can take visits because I will not make a decision until after I can get out and visit schools in person.”
