Scott enjoys his two day visit with the Florida Gators

On Saturday the Florida Gators hosted their last camp session before the dead period started on Sunday and several prospects were on campus for the event.

Running back Marvin Scott III (5-9, 203, Port Orange, FL. Spruce Creek) was on campus for two days this weekend visiting and camping with the Gators.

“I visited them on Friday and camped on Saturday,” Scott said of his visit to Florida over the weekend. “It was great, I loved the facilities and the coaching staff, it’s a very nice place. Camp went great, I was one of the top guys.”

Following the event, Scott got a chance to talk to several of Florida’s coaches including head coach Dan Mullen who talked to him about being a fit for the Gators.

“They talked about how they like how I run with power and speed and how I can move,” he said on the message from the coaching staff. “Coach Mullen said the same thing and that I would be a great fit.”

Running backs coach Larry Scott and Mullen also explained to Scott what the Gators like about his game and how they could get him the ball in Florida’s offense.

“My speed, catching ability and strength of course,” Scott said on what Florida likes him about. “They said they could move me around on offense to get me the ball.”

Scott has yet to pick up an offer from the Gators but the coaching staff did talk about a potential offer with the running back this weekend.

“They talked about an offer and said I was in their top group of backs,” he said. “Yes Sir [on if he thinks the offer is coming soon] and it would mean a lot to me because it’s close to home and overall a great program.”


INSIDERS TAKE: Scott has picked up several big offers this summer so far as Alabama, FSU and Miami have all offered since the end of spring practice.
