Summer usually means Christmas comes early for college football coaches and the Florida Gators football staff is no exception.
It’s during the summer that schools, like Florida, will host recruiting camps for prospects all over the country, giving coaches a chance to see some of the nations top prospects all in one place and only requiring a five minute drive.
The Gators recently hosted their own Jim McElwain 7-on-7 camp, just one of many throughout the summer. This particular one saw play from several prospects, future commits and current ones a like.
Booker T. Washington won the tournament and had alum Treon Harris on the field to watch his former team take the title.
GatorCountry.com was on hand to watch the action, and captured a few highlights from the evening.
One visitor was Gators class of 2016 wide receiver commit, Rick Wells (6’, 187 lb. Raines)
Across the field was a recent Gator commit, Lavarus Tigner (6’2”, 185 lb., Deerfield Beach), who gets the class of 2017 rolling as a wide receiver.
West Palm beach product Isaiah Johnson (6’3”, 190 lbs.) was there to participate and joined the ranks of commits as a 2016 wide receiver Gators commit.
Another prospect present was Kevaughn Dingle (6’1”, 185 lb., Carol City) who is a wide receiver the Gators could target for the 2017 class.
The most effective player on the field though was class of 2016 Gators commit Josh Hammond (6’, 180 lb.) as the Hallandale product was effective nearly every time he was targeted.
There were many more playmakers and prospects on hand that Jim McElwain and staff were able to get an up close look at.
There will be even more as the summer goes on and GatorCountry.com will be there to bring you updates through it all.
