A lot of out of state offers have went out to underclassmen prospects during the dead period as the Florida Gators coaches have had time to watch film of hundreds of guys.
2022 receiver Evan Stewart (6-0, 160, Frisco, TX. Liberty) was one of those out of state prospects offered by the Gators in late March.
“Coach [Brian] Johnson offered me,” Stewart said on the coach who offered him. “They just said that I was a baller and that they wanted to get at me and asked if they had already offered.”
Stewart admits that he has some family members that are big fans of the Gators and that made this offer a big one to the receiver.
“It surprised me, I wasn’t expecting it honestly,” he said on what the offer means to him. “It meant something to me because my uncle and his family are Gator fans.”
Quarterbacks coach and area recruiter Brian Johnson explained to Stewart why the Gators wanted to offer him.
“He didn’t really get into that but we’re going to talk more,” Stewart said on where Johnson sees him playing. “He just said I was a baller and a natural born athlete that he wants.”
Stewart hasn’t visited Florida yet but he admits that the sunshine state is a state that he likes in general.
“I like the uniforms and helmets,” he said on what he likes about Florida. “Florida in general I like, I’ve only been out there a couple times but I love the heat.”
The Gators have some tough local competition for Stewart but Florida will hope to get the receiver on campus as soon as the dead period lifts.
“Oklahoma, Texas, Baylor and Auburn,” Stewart said on other schools recruiting him hard. “Coach Johnson hasn’t talked about when he wants me to visit but we’re going to talk about that.”
