Several prospects were on campus for the Florida Gators junior day earlier this month and several of those guys were underclassmen.
2022 Michigan defensive back commit Myles Rowser (6-1, 185, Bradenton, FL. IMG) was one of those guys on campus and he got to meet with the coaching staff.
“The visit was real cool,” Rowser said of his visit to Florida for junior day. “I got to see the campus with Coach Rat [Keiwan Ratliff] along with meeting Coach [Dan] Mullen and the other staff there.”
While on the visit Rowser met with two of his potential position coaches and received a message from them about his play last year.
“I talked to Coach [Ron] English and Coach [Torrian] Gray when I met Coach Mullen,” he said on the coaches he talked to on the visit. “They said the coaches were following me and were impressed with my sophomore season.”
English and Gray also explained to Rowser just how the Gators see him fitting into the defense in Gainesville.
“They said that I would play safety or in the nickel,” Rowser said on where Gray and English wants him to play. “He said that I would be a good fit for the program and to keep doing what I’m doing at IMG this season coming up.”
Head coach Dan Mullen also broke down what stood out to the Gators about Rowser’s game and how his versatility is something they’ve noticed.
“He said just to keep working and they’re watching,” he said on what Mullen told him. “What stood out the most was that they believe I can play anywhere in the secondary, safety or corner. That’s what I want schools to see in me as an athlete.”
This was Rowser’s first visit to Gainesville but he’s already thinking about visiting Florida again.
“I like the program a lot and the coaching staff,” Rowser said of his interest in Florida. “I’m glad they’re following me and I will visit them again.”
Michigan continues to recruit Rowser hard but he says two other programs are after him hard as well.
“Florida and Penn State right now,” he said on other schools recruiting him hard. “I want to make a final decision after this season when colleges can reach out to me directly. I’m definitely taking my official visits.”
