Janvier breaks down why he committed to the Florida Gators

The Florida Gators hosted several prospects on campus on Friday for the second session of summer camp and following the camp, the Gators received some good news.

Offensive lineman Jovens Janvier (6-3, 350, Miami, FL. Christian School) committed to Florida over several other offers.

“It felt like home and it just felt right to me,” Janvier said on why he decided to commit to Florida. “Coach [Dan] Mullen told me welcome to the family and it was great to have me. He said you’re about to be a part of Gator Nation and there’s a lot to Gator Nation that you’re going to be a part of.”

On Friday, Janvier took part in the Gators camp and he had the chance to work with offensive line coach John Hevesy during the camp.

“I was doing the camp with Coach [John] Hevesy today [Friday] and he taught what I needed to know,” he said on working with Hevesy on Friday. “He worked with me on jump sets and he just showed me how to really do it.”

Janvier admitted that working with Hevesy played a big part in why he decided to jump into the Gators class on Friday night.

“He really was,” Janvier said on if Hevesy played a part in his commitment. “How he was he treating me is how my offensive line coach treats me. He treats me like I mean something to him.”

Hevesy explained to Janvier just how the Gators see him fitting into Florida’s offense and how big of a need he was to Florida.

“He likes me at guard, right guard,” he said on where Florida likes him at. “He has always told me he needed me, he came by my school and he texts me all the time and talks to me about random stuff. He makes Florida feel like home.”

Janvier previously committed and decomitted from Louisville but the offensive lineman believes this is the last time he will make a commitment to a school.

“This is going to be it,” Janvier said on if this is his final decision. “Everyone in my family was very happy for me and they feel like it’s a great move for me too.”
