Killian has a lot of interest in the Florida Gators early on

Last weekend the Florida Gators hosted several instate targets on campus for the second session of summer camp in Gainesville.

2021 athlete Kaleb Killian (5-10, 160, Jacksonville, FL. Trinity Christian) was one of those guys taking part in the camp and he got to show what he can do on the defensive side of the ball last weekend.

“I didn’t visit get to visit, I just went and competed in their camp,” Killian said of time in Gainesville last weekend. “The camp went well, I made some good plays and did a workout with Coach [Torrian] Gray so they got to see me on the defensive side of the ball a bit.”

Two weeks ago, the Gators officially offered Killian and after working out with Gray, he explained what position the staff likes the athlete at.

“He told me they already know what I can do on offense,” he said of the message from Torrian Gray. “He said he wanted to see me get work on the defensive side of the ball and he said for my offer, I’m listed as an athlete.”

This was the first time for Killian to work with Gray and following the camp, the athlete liked how the Gators defensive backs coach worked on the field.

“Working out with him wasn’t too bad,” Killian said of working with Gray. “We do those same drills over at Trinity but Coach Gray is a cool coach that I can see myself playing for.”

With eight offers already, Killian admits that the Florida offer is a big one to him and his interest in the Gators is very high for several reasons.

“My interest is very high that’s a school I can see myself at,” he said of his interest in Florida. “The energy there was great and everyone loves competing and it just feels like a family out there.”
