Lee still has interest in the Florida Gators

On Friday, running back Keyvone Lee (6-0, 223, Clearwater, FL. Superior Collegiate Academy) visited Gainesville for the first time since he decomitted from the Gators.

Lee who hasn’t been talking much about Florida decided to visit Gainesville on Friday to meet up with the coaching staff again.

“I’ve been here so many times, I’ve seen it all,” Lee said of his visit to Florida. “I’ve been here like 20 times, I’m just coming back here to see the coaches and hang out with them.”

Running backs coach Greg Knox and linebackers coach Christian Robinson have been the main coaches talking to Lee and explaining how bad they want him back in the 2020 class.

“They’re saying they want me and they’re going to do whatever it takes to get me,” he said of the message from the coaching staff.

Lee knows Florida’s offense pretty good since he was once committed to Dan Mullen’s staff and now he wants to see how the 2019 season goes.

“I think I fit in well, I don’t know if they’re changing the offense this year or not,” Lee said on he thinks he fits into the offense at Florida. “I like how they run it and I’m just waiting to see how they do.”

The Gators are school that Lee admits is on his mind a lot and he explained what he likes about the Gators.

“This is my home town, I would love to come play for my home state,” he said on what he likes about Florida. “There’s good people here and a good environment.”

Florida isn’t the only top school after Lee as several other schools are after the running back as he starts to plan official visits.

“Penn State, LSU, Georgia, Florida, UCF, FSU, just really them,” Lee said on which schools are in it for him. “I plan on taking an official to LSU and I’m probably going to try and take one to North Carolina. I can drive here [Florida].”
