GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Several of the top recruits in the country were on hand to watch Florida State defeat Florida 21-7 on Saturday night. Here’s what they had to say about the game.
Florida tight end commit Kent Taylor (6-5/215, Land O’ Lakes, Fla./Land O’ Lakes)
"It wasn’t very good, both offenses need work. But I think both teams are going to be good soon. This game doesn’t change anything with my commitment to Florida."
Florida State defensive end commit Dante Fowler (6-3/235, St. Petersburg, Fla./Lakewood)
"It was a good game. FSU’s defense was too much for Florida. Nothing has changed with my recruitment. I’m still committed to FSU."
Florida running back commit Mike Davis (5-10/195, Stone Mountain, Ga./Stephenson)
"Florida's defense is great. They stopped FSU's offense plenty of times. Florida just needs a good offensive line. I’m still solid to Florida."
Florida safety commit Marcus Maye (6-1/195, Melbourne, Fla./Holy Trinity)
"The defense played well but it's hard to win with all the turnovers. I’m still 1000-percent committed to Florida."
Florida tight end commit Colin Thompson (6-5/255, Warminster, Pa./Archbishop Wood)
"Both teams played well on defense. The Gators showed heart. It’s a shame they couldn’t pull it off in the end."
2013 defensive back Will Likely III (5-8/170, Belle Glade, Fla./Glades Central)
"It was great seeing both teams play for the Governor's Cup. I like both defenses. They both used their secondary a lot, and everyone was moving to the ball."
