Florida in Brumfield’s top 3

Tim Davis was visiting offensive linemen prospects in Tennessee on Monday. On Tuesday, Davis moved on to the state of Louisiana.

One prospect he visited was Baton Rouge (La.) University Laboratory School offensive lineman Garrett Brumfield.

“Yes sir, coach Davis stopped by to see me today,” Brumfield said. “It was good to see him but he was only able to stay shortly because he was going down to see Joseph Paul in New Orleans. But overall, he was excited to see me again since he hadn’t seen me since football season. He told my coach that he would love to get me back on campus at Florida soon.”

The 6-foot-4, 285-pound Brumfield talks with offensive line coach Tim Davis some, but his main relationship is with tight end coach Derek Lewis.

“Coach Lewis recruits my area so that’s who I talk to mostly,” Brumfield said. “I talk to him usually once a week, sometimes twice a week. Our relationship is pretty good and he is a coach that I like to talk too because he is a good guy and a good coach. He tells me that Florida wants me to come be there center in their offense.”

Florida already has one offensive lineman commitment from the state of Louisiana in Joseph Paul and Brumfield likes the thought of playing with him at Florida.

“I have spoken to Joseph a few times on the phone,” Brumfield said. “He is a good guy and a talented offensive lineman. I think it would be fun to have two Louisiana offensive linemen at Florida on the line together.”

Despite Brumfield not visiting Florida in a few months, he still has the Gators high on his list.

“I’m highly considering the Gators,” Brumfield said. “Florida, Alabama and LSU are all high on my list. I could really see myself playing for Florida but I probably won’t decide until early in my season. I plan to visit Florida this summer and also Alabama this summer. I will be back at LSU this weekend for the spring game there.”
