Joseph likes the role the Florida Gators have for him

Several of the Florida Gators commits in the class of 2020 and 2021 were in Gainesville on Saturday for the Gators second junior day of the year.

Defensive end commit Morven Joseph (6-2, 210, Lakeland, FL. Lake Gibson) was one of those 2020 commits on campus and he got to do several different things while in town.

“The visit went well, it was my second time so I already seen most of the stuff there,” Joseph said of his visit to Florida on Saturday. “I got to talk with Coach Dan [Mullen] for a couple of minutes and try on a different uniform and watch practice which was fun.”

Joseph paid close attention to the defense on Saturday and he liked how the position that Florida wants him to play was used on Saturday.

“Practice looked good,” he said on his thoughts on Florida’s practice. “Defense was getting after it every play. The linebackers were rushing the quarterbacks and I like that because I get to play two positions. I like my hands in the dirt and outside linebacker because I like to rush.”

Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham also brought Joseph into the meeting room and showed him some pointers.

“I watched film with Coach Grantham for the last eight minutes,” Joseph said of Grantham. “We watched film and how to use our hands while rushing the passer and all that type of stuff.”

Head coach Dan Mullen and Grantham also had a message for Joseph on Saturday as the coaching staff continues to recruit the Florida commit hard.

“They say to be the hardest working person and just family stuff,” he said on the message from Florida. “The love has gotten even better since I committed. Coach Dan Mullen and Coach [Larry] Scott will text me a couple of times through out the week.”

Joseph recently visited Georgia but he says his commitment to the Florida Gators remains the same.

“I feel the same way I felt when I committed, I like the Gators,” Joseph said of his commitment to Florida.

Despite being a solid commit to the Gators, Joseph says he has a few more visits that he plans to take that were previously scheduled.

“I have a couple visits that my coach and I already planned before I committed so I still plan on going on them,” he said on upcoming visits. “FSU was one but I didn’t go to that one and I might still visit Miami. I’m going to visit Virginia and Virginia Tech. I’m flying to Virginia on the 29th.”
