Florida Gators offer Kentucky commit Mincey

On Saturday, the Florida Gators didn’t host many offensive targets but the ones that were on campus were all top targets for the coaching staff.

Kentucky offensive line commit Gerald Mincey (6-6, 317, Fort Lauderdale, FL. Cardinal Gibbons) was on campus for the first time this year on Saturday.

“It was a good visit,” Mincey said of his visit to Florida on Saturday. “We sat in the film room with the coaches and then went and watched them practice. After that we toured the campus.”

Mincey entered the day without an offer from Florida but after talking with Dan Mullen he left with an offer from the Gators.

“Coach Mullen and Coach [John] Hevesy offered me together,” he said on the coaches from Florida who offered him on Saturday. “They said they were extremely excited to offer me and told me to keep working hard.”

The Kentucky commit now holds close to 10 offers says he was excited to get the offer but he knows he has to keep working hard.

“I was happy to get the offer,” Mincey said. “It just means that I have to keep working hard the same way I got it. I can get it taken if I don’t keep working hard.”

Since the Gators didn’t offer Mincey until later in the day, the two sides didn’t get to talk much but that will change when the Kentucky commit visits Gainesville again.

“We didn’t get to talk much because I had to get on the bus,” he said of his talks with the coaching staff. “I will be back at the end of the month if all goes well and we will talk more then.”

Now that Florida has offered, Mincey admits that he has some things to think about with his commitment to Kentucky.

“I don’t know yet, only time will tell,” Mincey said of this offer changes anything with his commitment to Kentucky.
