Larsen breaks down last week’s Florida Gators offer

Last week, the Florida Gators handed out several new offers to underclassmen across the southeast as the coaching starts to expand the recruiting board.

2024 tight end Jack Larsen (6-3, 212, Charlotte, NC. Charlotte Catholic) picked up an offer after he talked to one of the Gators assistant coaches over the phone.

“Coach [Tim] Brewster did,” Larsen said on the coach who offered him last week. “We talked for a while just really about Florida and the school itself. Then towards the end of the call he offered me.”

Larsen now holds four offers including two SEC offers but he admits picking up an offer from the Gators was big to him and his recruitment.

“It’s definitely a big offer,” he said on what the offer means to him. “It means a lot, it caught me by surprise and I’m very grateful for it.”

Tight ends coach Tim Brewster explained to Larsen last week how he would fit into Florida’s offense and why Brewster would be able to develop the tight end.

“He was really just telling me how much experience he has with tight ends,” Larsen said on the message from Brewster. “He was telling me how much he could me fit into the program and how he has done his research and that he likes my game.”

Larsen is still learning about the Gators’ program but he knows a few things about Florida and he has interest in the program and wants to visit Gainesville soon.

“I’m looking forward to getting down there, they seem like really good people,” he said on his interest in Florida. “I’ve seen how they like to throw to their tight ends and there’s also a great atmosphere in the stadium. I’m probably going to try to make it down there this summer.”
