Samuel picks up a Florida offer

Brian White and Travaris Robinson both made their rounds around the New York and New Jersey area on Tuesday.

One prospect they visited was Brooklyn (N.Y.) Erasmus Hall Campus athlete Curtis Samuel, who the Gators like at the running back spot.

“Coach (Brian) White told my coach they were offering me today,” Samuel said. “Overall the visit went good. With coach White coming by, it kind of introduced me to Florida and they were telling my coach how I would be used in the program at running back.”

With the offer coming on Tuesday, the 6-foot, 185-pound Samuel doesn’t know much about the Gators besides the fact that he is looking at Florida.

“I’m interested in Florida and what they have to offer,” Samuel said. “I have watched them play since I was young and I was excited to have a coach from Florida come all the way to New York just to see me and offer me. I want to visit Florida so I’m going to try my best to set something up maybe for this summer.”

Getting players into the NFL is something that Samuel has noticed that Florida does year in and year out.

“Florida is a good program,” Samuel said. “They have won national championship and they always have winning season and good players. I know that Florida has put a lot of players into the league and coach Muschamp continues to do that.”

Right now, Samuel says he has no leaders but that Ohio State is recruiting him the hardest at the running back position.
