On Sunday, the Florida Gators hosted a rare weekend visitor this time of the year but it was a big target that made the trip to Gainesville.
Receiver Marcus Rosemy (6-2, 187, Fort Lauderdale, FL. St. Thomas Aquinas) was on campus and got to visit with the coaching staff as well as take a campus tour.
“The visit was good,” Rosemy said of his visit to Florida on Sunday. “We got to take a tour of the whole campus, which is really big and I didn’t know it was that big. I got a chance to chill and chat with Coach [Billy] Gonzales too.”
Receivers coach Billy Gonzales explained to Rosemy why the Gators need the receiver in the 2020 class and also explained what the depth chart would look like in 2020.
“He said basically that after this season they’re losing four seniors,” he said on the message from Gonzales. “He said possibly may lose Tre [Grimes] if he has a good year so he will need me to come in as a freshman ready to play for them.”
Rosemy didn’t visit Gainesville last year but he did watch Dan Mullen’s offense closely and he liked what he seen out of Florida’s offense in 2019.
“The offense is really nice,” Rosemy said on his thoughts on Florida’s offense. “They use their receivers and I think I’ll fit into the offense perfectly and be a huge factor on the offense.”
After not visiting Florida under Mullen, Rosemy walked away from Sunday’s visit to Gainesville impressed by the Gators.
“I was already up in Gainesville for a 7-on-7 tournament so I just thought I’ll take a visit while I’m up there,” he said on why he decided to visit Florida. “The visit opened my eyes on Florida though.”
Next up for Rosemy is spring ball for his team but after that, the receiver plans to take more visits.
“I’ll visit them again,” Rosemy said of what’s next for him. “I have no leader or a timetable for a decision but it’s coming soon
