Over the last few weeks, a lot of offers have been going out to underclassmen prospects all-around the country.
Last week before the Cotton Bowl, former safeties coach Ron English offered 2023 athlete Adon Shuler (6-1, 190, Irvington, NJ. High) before he was dismissed from Florida.
“Coach [Ron] English and Coach Hova reached out to me,” Shuler said on the coaches from Florida who offered him last week. “I was able to speak to both coaches and they told me they loved my film and what I did on the field. They said they could see me playing on that level.”
Shuler was shocked and excited about the offer from the Gators and says the offer was a moment he won’t forget anytime soon.
“The offer from Florida was a very crazy experience,” he said on what the offer means to him. “I’ve been watching them for years playing against the best and for them to offer me was very amazing. It was a very emotional moment that I’ve been dreaming about a moment like this all my life and when it happened I was like ‘Wow’.”
English explained to Shuler how the Gators would use him on defense and what the coaching staff likes about his game.
“He sees me playing strong safety as I’m going to probably keep growing and may get to 6’4,” Shuler said on where Florida sees him playing. “He sees me as a guy that can cover and a guy that can make tackles in the box. He likes my versatility and he said he can see me playing all over the field.”
Shuler has watched the Gators a lot the last few years and he likes a few things about Florida but the athlete says no team stands out to him this early in the process.
“I like how they fly around, they never play flat, they always have energy,” he said on what he likes about Florida. “Right now it’s only the beginning of my recruiting process so I am not really thinking about where I want to go, I’ve just been living in the moment and remaining humble.”
