Wednesday, the Florida Gators handed out double digit offers to players all around the country as the staff continues to build their recruiting board for 2019.
Athlete Jammie Robinson (5-11, 180, Cordele, GA. Crisp County) was one of those guys who got an offer and it was offer that has been waiting on him for a few weeks.
“Coach [John] Hevesy was the one who gave me the offer,” Robinson said. “He was pretty much saying that he has been trying to get in touch with me to tell me about the offer. So he just said that he was offering me.”
Robinson tweeted out his offer from the Gators and instantly received positive feedback from many fans including a Gators signee.
“Oh, it’s awesome,” he said on what the offer means to him. “Jacob Copeland he retweeted my post on Twitter and told me to go ahead and join the family and stuff like that. I’m already getting love from them and the fans already.”
Hevesy didn’t get into much with Robinson on Wednesday but was more so trying to get the Georgia athlete on campus to see and meet the coaching staff.
“He said he wants me to get down there for a spring practice,” Robinson said on Hevesy’s message to him. “He was giving me the schedule so I can get down there and tour the campus and everything. They wanted me to come down last weekend but I couldn’t and this weekend they’re out for spring break so I’m going to come in the spring.”
When Robinson does take his visit, he’s looking to learn more about the Gators as he doesn’t much about Florida.
“I don’t know too much about them but I know they have had some good defensive backs come out of there,” he said on what he knows about Florida.
One thing Robinson will learn more about is where the Gators see him playing at but heading into the visit he has a pretty good idea of where he wants to play in college.
“Florida hasn’t really told me where they want me at but I’m pretty sure I’m going to play defense,” Robinson said. “Some schools are telling me that they like me on both sides of the ball though. I want to play some special teams because I know when I get the ball in my hands that I can be a real weapon.”
The Gators have some work to do once they get him on campus as another SEC school is currently leading the way in Robinson’s recruitment.
“South Carolina right now is in my lead right now,” he said on if he has a leader. “They’ve been recruiting ever since my sophomore year but at the same time I’m still enjoying my process.”
