Knight hoping for a bright future for the Florida Gators

The Florida Gators are going through a tough stretch on the field and off the field with Will Muschamp’s tenure at Florida up in the air. With turmoil surrounding the program, Florida commits are keeping a close eye on Florida’s future.

One of the Florida Gators commits that has seen all of the home games in person is tight end commit Camrin Knight (6-4, 220, Tallahassee, FL Lincoln), who says he just wants Jeremy Foley and company to make the best decision for the future.

“I’m solid to Florida and this season doesn’t affect me at all,” Knight said. “I don’t know what’s going to happen with everything but I just hope that they make the best decision for the team and for the future of the program.”

One thing that Knight has seen this year is that, despite the bad record on the field, the Florida fan base is still coming and supporting the team.

“The atmosphere has been great at the games this year,” Knight said. “The crowd has been all into the games. The LSU game was very loud and I got a good vibe from the atmosphere so far.”

Knight has also been impressed by how much Kurt Roper has gotten the tight ends involved in the offense.

“I like the way they are using the tight ends this year,” Knight said. “Coach [Derek] Lewis keeps telling me that he can’t wait for me to get there. I feel like I’m going to fit well into the offense at Florida.”

The Lincoln prospect has been committed to Florida since last winter and he still talks to Florida on a regular basis but Knight says that he doesn’t talk too much about what the program is going through.

“I talk to Coach Lewis every week or sometimes more,” Knight said. “He always tells me about how they are going to use me and how their week is going and just stuff like that. He doesn’t really get into what ‘s going on with the program that much.”

Going forward Knight says he knows a few things that the Florida Gators must do to win some games in 2014.

“I think they have to start playing together as a unit,” Knight said. “They have to fix the little things on offense and start scoring some points.”


INSIDERS TAKE: Knight, much like Kalif Jackson, is very solid to Florida and if any changes are made I would suspect that Knight will remain a Florida Gators commit unless the offense is changed up.
