Wilcoxson remains interested in the Florida Gators despite decommitment

It isn’t often that guys who decommit from a school stay interested in that school or even visit the school they decomitted from.

On Friday, however the Gators hosted three of their former commits on campus including 2021 athlete Kamar Wilcoxson (6-2, 190, Decatur, GA. Stephenson) who got to talk to several coaches during Friday Night Lights.

“It was a good feeling and I enjoyed myself,” Wilcoxson said of his visit to Florida on Friday. “I got talk to Coach [Torrian] Gray, Coach [Christian] Robinson, Coach Mullen and Coach [Keiwan Ratliff] Rat.”

The coaching staff was explaining to Wilcoxson just why the Gators want him back in the 2021 recruiting class.

“They were showing me that they want me back and stuff,” he said on the message from the coaching staff. “Just trying to let me see how they coach and stuff.”

Wilcoxson who plays all over in high school is being recruited at defensive back for the Gators and the staff explained how he fits into the defense.

“That I’m versatile and I can play all over the secondary,” Wilcoxson said on what the coaches like about him. “

Despite decommitting from Florida, Wilcoxson has stayed interested in the Gators and he says a few things keep him interested in them.

“It’s really just the tradition, I grew up liking them,” Wilcoxson said on what keeps him coming back to Florida. “They’re always going to stand out to me.”

Just a few short months ago Wilcoxson was recruiting others to join him in Gainesville and on Friday the roles were reversed and others were trying to get him to commit to Florida.

“Yes sir,” he said on if he had commits recruiting him. “They were saying they need me in the Swamp and they like the way I play and they want to play with somebody like me.”
