2014 OL Brumfield names Florida his leader

8/5/2012

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- 2014 offensive lineman Garrett Brumfield (Baton Rouge, La./University Laboratory School) attended the Will Muschamp football camp recently. After his trip to Gainesville, the 6-foot-3, 272-pound guard/center prospect named Florida as his leader.

Brumfield, who will also camp at Miami on Wednesday, said he hit it off with new Florida offensive line coach Tim Davis.

"It was a great experience," Brumfield said. "I just came out here hoping to compete and hoping for the best. From working with Coach Davis at practice, he really liked what I was able to do. He liked my flexibility, he liked my athleticism, he liked my effort. He just liked the way I played."

Alabama, LSU, Florida and Miami have all shown interest in the athletic prospect. The Gators decided to pull the trigger and offer Brumfield while he was in Gainesville.

"I actually called Coach Muschamp on the phone once I got back to the dorm," Brumfield said. "He said we really want you. We'd really like to have you here."

With Brumfield being from Baton Rouge, home of LSU, the question everyone wants to know is will LSU be the team to beat?

"Ever since I was a little kid, I've always kind of wanted to leave the state, even though LSU is right there at home," Brumfield said. "Baton Rouge is where I'm from. It really wouldn't affect me majorly though. Right now, of course, Florida is high on the radar. I'm really feeling good about Florida right now. Other than that I'm not sure."

Brumfield said he has no time frame to make his college decision.
