Wilcoxson knew Florida was the school for him

The Florida Gators picked up their first commitment for the 2021 class on Saturday when they took on Missouri.

2021 athlete Kamar Wilcoxson (6-2, 185, Stone Mountain, GA. Stephenson) announced his committed to Florida during the game while he was on campus visiting the Gators.

“Today was the right time to commit,” Wilcoxson said on why he committed to Florida on Saturday. “It’s been on my mind for a minute but it was about when I could get down and talk to Coach Mullen face to face and see where his mind was. Once I did that, I knew this was the school for me.”

Wilcoxson who’s an athlete that plays both sides of the ball likes where the Gators want him to play at and how they develop players at that position.

“I like how they play and develop young players at defensive back,” he said on what made Florida the school for him. “I can tell Coach Mullen has his players best interest at heart just by the conversation we had before I committed. Also Florida is DBU.”

The Gators have discussed with Wilcoxson about how he would fit into the Gators program when he arrives at Florida.

“Coach Mullen wants me at defensive back,” Wilcoxson said. “He would I would fit in great because of my personality and work ethic.”

Wilcoxson also talked with defensive backs coach Charlton Warren on Saturday about why he was wanted at Florida.

“He basically said that he just wanted me in the program,” he said on Warren’s message to him. “He knows what kind of player I am.”

Now that Wilcoxson has committed to Florida, the 2021 athlete says he plans to help recruit for the Gators.

“I’m going to try my hardest to flip my brother Javier Morton [Alabama 2020 commit],” Wilcoxson said. “It’s more people but that’s who I want to play with me.”
