Rodgers enjoys his game-day in the Swamp

The Florida Gators hosted prospects in the Swamp for a game for the first time in over a year on Saturday when the Gators beat FAU.

2023 receiver Bryson Rodgers (6-2, 170, Zephyrhills, FL. Wiregrass Ranch) was on campus and enjoyed the experience.

“It was great, 10/10 experience,” Rodgers said of his visit to Florida on Saturday. “We got too chill with the other recruits, walk on the field and see the coaches before the game. It was beautiful, my family also loved them [facilities].”

This was the first time for Rodgers to experience a game in the Swamp and he liked the crowd and the atmosphere.

“Man, that atmosphere is something special,” he said on what he thought of the atmosphere at Florida. “The Gators played a pretty good all-around game in my eyes. They have a great offense, and the receivers make plays.”

While on campus, Rodgers had the chance to meet with receivers coach Billy Gonzales as well as one of the Gators support staff members.

“Coach [Charlie] Skalaski toured me the most,” Rodgers said of the staff member he was around the most. “He said Coach G [Billy Gonzales] and Coach [Christian] Robinson love my game. They seem me as a University of Florida receiver and he also sees me fitting in great in the Orange and Blue.”

After the visit, Rodgers says his interest in Florida is high for several reasons as he likes what the Gators have to offer.

“It’s high, like it has always been, I will definitely be back in the Swamp this year,” he said on his interest in Florida. “They have a good mixture of great academics and football. The fans and people who support the staff and the type of football they play.”
