The Gators signed two top notch running backs in the Class of 2013. Now they’re looking to add two more for the Class of 2014.
On Saturday Florida hosted Cedartown (Ga.) High running back Nick Chubb who after the visit, moved the Gators into his top group.
“After visiting Florida you can put them in my top four,” Chubb said. “It’s Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Auburn right now but I still want to visit Ohio State and after that I’ll see where everyone stands.”
During the visit the 5-foot-10, 208-pound Chubb was able to meet everyone and see his first spring practice from a college team.
“It was real good and my first time actually seeing a college team go through spring practice,” Chubb said. “It was my first time to meet the coaches and see the campus. I really liked coach (Will) Muschamp, he was the same person as he seems over the phone. He was telling me that want me to be a Gator and apart of the downhill running game they have.”
After meeting with Muschamp, Chubb sat down with running backs coach Brian White who reiterated what Muschamp said, and also added that Florida wanted two backs this year with Chubb being one of them.
Following all of the meetings Chubb was finally able to see the Gators in action. He was very impressed with the tempo he saw.
“It was a good practice but a lot faster than high school practices,” Chubb said. “It was a lot of different calls and stuff but it didn’t seem too hard. The offensive scheme was a lot like we run at my high school, so I think I could fit in well there.”
