Last weekend, the Florida Gators hosted several prospects committed to other schools when they took on Kentucky in the Swamp.
2024 LSU tight end commit Tayvion Galloway (6-5, 230, Chillicothe, OH. High) was on campus for the first time and enjoyed meeting everyone.
“It was a great time,” Galloway said of his visit to Florida. “To be down here and just check out how the vibe is at Florida and to start building that connection with Coach P [William Peagler]. Getting to know him and for him to get to know me more.”
While on campus, Galloway picked up an offer from the Gators after talking with tight ends coach William Peagler.
“Whenever we were eating lunch before the game, I was talking to Coach P,” he said on when he picked up the offer from Florida. “We were just chopping it up and building our connection as I get to know him, and he gets to know me, and he just told me that he was offering me a scholarship.”
Peagler and the rest of the coaching staff explained to Galloway just what they like about him as a player and as a person.
“Really they were just telling me that they like my versatility on the field,” Galloway said on what Florida likes about his game. “With everything I’m able to do on the field and just who I am and how I am as a person. Coach P told me he doesn’t like to just offer people, he likes to be able to sit down and see how people are before they offer.”
Galloway has paid close attention to Billy Napier’s offense and how he uses tight ends, and he believes it’s a good fit for his position.
“I thought it was pretty good from what I have seen,” he said on how Florida uses its tight ends. “I think it’s definitely a good spot for a tight end to come to.”
After picking up the offer, Galloway says he has an interest in the Gators and wants to learn more about them when he visits again.
“As of right now, I’m interested in Florida,” Galloway said of his interest in Florida. “I’m interested to learn more about the program. Really just learn more about how they use the tight ends and how they plan to use me.”
