The Florida Gators continue to look for a running back in the class of 2020 and on Sunday, the coaching staff offered a new prospect.
Running back DeaMonte Trayanum (6-0, 215, Akron, OH. Archbishop Hoban) learned of the offer from one of the Gators support staff members.
“Coach [Keiwan] Ratliff offered me last night [Sunday],” Trayanum said of which coach from Florida offered him. “He said that Florida is just trying to get kids that will help their program.”
Ratliff had a message for Trayanum about why the Gators wanted to offer him a scholarship and where he could play at in Gainesville.
“He said they liked my film a lot,” he said on the message from Ratliff. “He said I could play running back or strong safety. I will find out soon where they want me to play.”
Trayanum has 13 offers to date but he says Florida offers something that some schools can’t offer with its location.
“It means a lot since it’s a coast school and I can study marine biology there,” Trayanum said of what the offer means to him. “I don’t know too much about them but I plan to learn a lot more about them.”
The running back has never visited Gainesville but Trayanum says a visit to Florida is possible.
“I’m interested in them now,” he said on his interest in Florida. “I want to visit but I might have to take an official visit there.”
The Gators will have to play catch up to several other big time prospects who are ahead for Trayanum in his recruitment.
“My leaders right now are Ohio State and Wisconsin,” Trayanum said. “Other schools up there are Notre Dame, Penn State and Michigan.”
