McKenzie has high interest in Florida

Will Muschamp is one of the hardest working head coaches in college football when it comes to recruiting. Tuesday afternoon Muschamp stopped by to see receiver Isaiah McKenzie (5-8, 165, Plantation, FL American Heritage) who just came off of an official visit to Florida last weekend.

“Coach Muschamp,Coach T-Rob (Travaris Robinson) and Coach (Kurt) Roper came by the school,” McKenzie said. “It went great man. We was just talking mainly it was real laid back. Coach Muschamp and me we like to joke around with each other so we were just joking around today.”

When Muschamp visited McKenzie on Tuesday afternoon he wanted to talk with the receiver about his official visit to Gainesville last weekend.

“Coach Muschamp was talking to me about my official from last weekend,” McKenzie said. “I just told him that I had a really good time and he was asking me about what I liked and stuff. I told him that I liked that he didn’t pressure me to commit or anything like that.”

Although there is a numbers crunch, Muschamp told McKenzie that he’s okay with him taking his remaining two officials but he made it clear he wants him in Gainesville.

“I still plan to visit Ole Miss and Notre Dame,” McKenzie said. “Coach Muschamp told me that he understands that I want to take those visits and he respects that but he hopes that I choose Florida and that he has a spot for me.”

With two visits remaining for McKenzie he has a lot on his mind but he likes Florida a lot and also knows what factor will make his decision for him.

“I have very high interest in Florida,” McKenzie said. “I’m going to have a hard decision to make soon. At this point I have a lot of options to go out of state or stay in-state but I’m looking for the best fit for me and where I feel at home at whether that’s in-state or out of state. I felt at home at Florida this past weekend and the coaches and players were real welcoming to me but I still have to see whether other schools make me feel that way too.”
