Stephens enjoys official visit

This past weekend was a busy weekend in Gainesville but the coaches had some help recruiting as three current  Florida verbal commitments were in town to help recruit the six uncommitted prospects who were in for their official visits. In Gainesville to help was tight end Moral Stephens (6-3, 205, Perry, FL Taylor County) who had a blast in Gainesville.

“The visit overall was great for me and my dad,” Stephens said. “I really enjoyed myself and the best part of the whole visit was hanging out with other players on campus to get their opinion on what they thought about Florida.”

During the entire process Stephens has talked about how important his family was in any kind of decision he made and this weekend his family approved of everything.

“My family enjoyed their self a lot this weekend,” Stephens said. “They told me that they liked the school as well and that they are glad that I’m going to Florida.”

Stephens who has been committed to Florida for more than a month got the chance to sit down with two of Florida’s coaches.

“I got the chance to meet with (Kurt) Roper and with (Will) Muschamp during the visit,” Stephens said. “The coaches were basically telling me they are ready for me to get down there and get to work with the coaches and the strength coach.”

Like any other committed player any chance that Stephens gets to recruit other players to join him in the Gators class he does and this weekend he was recruiting hard.

“I was recruiting Treon (Harris) and the Missouri commit Rocel (McWilliams),” Stephens said. “ I think we got shot at both and McWilliams said he had some thinking to do but that he liked Florida a lot.”

Will Muschamp will go in-home with Stephens sometime this week or next week he says.
