Mikell enjoyed the atmosphere in the Swamp on Saturday night

The Florida Gators hosted dozens of recruits on Saturday for their big win over Tennessee and several of those targets were 2024 guys.

Athlete Kamron Mikell (6-2, 181, Statesboro, GA. High) was on campus and enjoyed the atmosphere in the Swamp.

“The crowd was loud, very loud,” Mikell said of his visit to Florida on Saturday. “I just really loved how the atmosphere was and how the fans reacted to the team. Florida came in an underdog, but they still fight, and they won. They really shocked everybody.”

Mikell had the chance to talk with the coaches before and after the game on Saturday and he likes where their relationship stands after the visit.

“It was really good,” he said on talking to the coaches. “I talk to most of them like almost every day. It’s really a good feeling talking to them in-person. Just building more of a connection with them, getting a good feeling about them, and bonding with them.”

The Georgia native plays both sides of the ball in high school but the Gators want him at receiver and that was the message from the coaches on Saturday.

“Coach [Billy] Gonzales and Coach Decker,” Mikell said on the two coaches he talks to the most. “They like my speed, my versatility, more of a deep threat type of guy. That’s what they like me at.”

Mikell has liked Florida for a while now, but he says Saturday’s visit put the Gators up there in his recruitment and he plans to return for another visit.

“They’re up there, I’m still trying to figure out my official visit,” he said on where Florida stands for him now. “This week was supposed to be my official visit but we’re trying to figure out another day for it. I would like to do it in the season.”

The receiver would like to have his recruitment done by the time his senior year of football is over if possible.

“November or December,” Mikell said on when he wants to make a decision. “I don’t really want to be dealing with recruiting stuff after the season.”
