McVay proud to pick up his Florida Gators offer

The Florida Gators have put together an impressive 2021 class already, which has allowed the coaching staff to start working on future classes.

Two weeks ago, the coaching staff handed out a new offer to 2023 offensive lineman Miles McVay (6-5, 310, East Saint Louis, IL. High) who heard the news from two coaches.

“Coach [Kirby] O’Mera and Coach [John] Hevesy offered me,” McVay said on the coaches from Florida who offered him. “The conversation wasn’t really that long, we talked about how I came up there before last year and I ended up talking to them last year and I did my thing at camp then and they saw it and I got the offer.”

McVay visited Gainesville last summer so he’s familiar with the Gators but to get the offer from Florida was a big one to the lineman.

“I was happy and proud of myself,” he said on what the offer means to him. “My family was proud of me, I’m just looking to improve my game so I can keep the offer. I’ve been working hard to get a big offer like this. Florida is a big school and a good one too.”

Offensive line coach John Hevesy explained to McVay what the Gators like about his game and why they wanted to offer him.

“They talked about how good my feet are and how they like how I move,” McVay said on what Florida likes about his game. “They saw a couple of videos from the camp and they said that I move my feet well for a big guy.”

When McVay was on campus last summer he was able to see a lot of what Florida has to offer and that has led the lineman to like several things about the Gators.

“Florida is a great program and they’re number one for their business school,” he said on what he knows about Florida. “I’m always looking at the education, they have a good program there and they’re very systematic which is like my school now. I think I would fit in pretty well there.”

The Gators aren’t the only top school after McVay as several SEC rivals are pushing hard for the lineman.

“Georgia, Arizona State, Ole Miss, Tennessee and I think that’s it,” McVay said on other schools recruiting him hard.
