A visit to the Florida campus three weeks ago for a junior day has gotten the result 2015 defensive end Jason Strowbridge (6-4, 245, Deerfield Beach, FL High) was looking for.
“Florida offered me during my junior day visit,” Strowbridge said. “Coach Muschamp offered me after my visit. It felt real special to have the head coach offer me plus I’ve been wanting an offer from them for a long time now.”
The offer from Florida rocketed the Gators onto Strowbridge’s list of favorites.
“Florida, Alabama, Miami are my top three right now,” Strowbridge said. “I don’t have any more visits planned right now.”
The visit to Florida set the bar high as the facilities on campus stood out for the defensive end.
“I really liked junior day at Florida,” Strowbridge said. “It was a real good experience and we got to go to the basketball game and that was fun. They also had real good food there too. The best part of the visit was the facilities they have.”
If the facilities weren’t the best part of the visit for Strowbridge the coaches definitely were as this visit helped him become more familiar with Will Muschamp and his staff.
“I really like the coaches at Florida,” Strowbridge said. “I think all of the coaches there are great and I’ve been able to meet them twice now because I met them at the camp before. This time I got to talk to them a little more and get to know them a little more.”
The time spent with Muschamp went well as Florida’s head coach delivered a positive message that Strowbridge was happy to hear.
“Coach Muschamp kept telling me that he liked my upside a lot,” Strowbridge said. “He said that I could fit in at defensive tackle or even strong side defensive end. He said that I had a good frame and that I was real long.”
After hearing Muschamp tell him where he fit into the defense, Strowbridge feels like he would be a perfect fit in Gainesville.
“I think I could fit into their defense well,” Strowbridge said. “They have a fast defense and I think I’m athletic enough to play where Coach wants me at. I think I could even fit into the linebacker position even they need me too.”
