Offensive lineman Jake Fruhmorgen (6-5, 282, Tampa, FL Plant) came to Gainesville for junior day last week and came away highly impressed with Florida’s new offensive line coach.
“The visit went very well; it was a cool visit,” Fruhmorgen said. “I got the chance to see Coach (Will) Muschamp again and meet the new offensive line coach Mike Summers and it was a good deal. That was my highlight of the trip getting to meet Coach Summers finally.”
This was the first time for Fruhmorgen and Summers to meet and the visit proved quite informative.
“It was my first time getting to talk to Coach Summers and he was telling me about the new offense and about his philosophy,” Fruhmorgen said. “He’s a good coach and real technical about the offense line. He’s different from Coach (Tim) Davis and in a better way so that helps Florida. I expected a lot out of him and he lived up to it.”
When Fruhmorgen finished talking with Summers he headed over to Will Muschamp’s offense where the two talked about the spread offense being implemented by new coordinator Kurt Roper.
“Coach Muschamp was telling me that the offense was going to be different this year,” Fruhmorgen said. “I think I fit in well into that style offense that he wants at Florida because I have grown up playing in the spread offense at Plant.”
There had been talk that Fruhmorgen would publically narrow down his list but he says he not quite ready to do that yet but he does have a few schools standing out.
“I haven’t really narrowed it down too much,” Fruhmorgen said. “I’ve narrowed it down in my head some but right now I’m not ready to release it. I know Florida, Clemson, Georgia, Ole Miss, Texas and Alabama are schools that I want to look at more. I want to make my decision this summer.”
With colleges starting spring practice up in the new few weeks Fruhmorgen has plans to visit two schools to watch how the offensive line is coached up in a practice.
“I plan to go back up to Florida for a spring practice when they start,” Fruhmorgen said. “I want to see Coach Summers in action and see how he works with the linemen. After that I think we might go see Clemson again too.”
