Mizell says the Florida Gators are one of his “top” schools

The Florida Gators need playmakers on the offensive side of the ball in the 2023 class and last week they hosted one of their top targets at receiver.

Receiver Aidan Mizell (6-2, 180, Orlando, FL. Boone) was on campus for the second time this spring and enjoyed getting to see some live game action.

“It was great,” Mizell said of his visit to Florida on Thursday. “The game was exciting, I got to see how they coach a little bit and see some of the plays. It was real cool.”

Mizell paid close attention to Billy Napier’s offense, and he liked how involved the receivers were in the offense.

“It was good, they threw the ball deep a little bit,” he said on Florida’s offense. “They had a bunch of screens, what I like to do. It looked like their game plan suits me really well. It was just a sneak peek; they didn’t want to show much because everything is televised.”

Mizell also got the chance to spend some time talking with the coaching staff before and after the game.

“I spent time with Coach [Keary] Colbert before, I spent time with a few other coaches before the game,” Mizell said on talking to the coaches. “After the game, I was just in there waiting for them, I know they had to talk to the guys but after that, me and Coach Colbert talked again for another 10 minutes.”

After visiting Florida twice this spring, Mizell says the Gators are one of his top schools because of several reasons.

“Florida is definitely one of my top schools,” he said of his interest in Florida. “I’m probably going to release a top five soon, probably by spring football. I like the location, it’s home, it’s an hour away from where I live, it’s an SEC school and play great competition. They’re competing the public education is one of the best in the nation.”

Next up for Mizell will be his spring football but after that more visits will take place for the Orlando receiver.

“I’ll probably be done with visits until May,” Mizell said on what’s next for him. “Once summer hits, I will probably take some official visits.”


INSIDERS TAKE: Mizell said he could possibly take all of his officials in June and then make a decision but nothing is set at this time.
