One of the top prospects in Georgia for the 2014 class, ESPN Watch List selection Raekwon McMillan (Hinesville, Ga./Liberty County) was in Gainesville, Fla., over the weekend to check out the University of Florida. Following his trip, the 6-foot-3, 235-pound junior had good things to say about the Gators.
“The visit to Florida was really nice and I enjoyed spending time with Will Muschamp,” McMillan said. “He told me about how he wants me to come in and play in his system, and what it is like playing for a defensive-minded head coach. He wants me to make plays at traditional middle linebacker.”
McMillan likes the thought of staying in the middle in college, but more than that, he is hoping for an opportunity to come in and play early at the next level. He met one player at Florida who was able to do just that in linebacker Jon Bostic.
“My favorite part of the trip was sitting down and talking to Jon Bostic about how he liked it there at Florida,” McMillan said. “He was really down to earth and he told me that he loved it there and how he felt Florida would be a good place for me.”
The campus stood out to Florida, as did the defense. But it was not enough for the Gators to crack his top five just yet. McMillan discussed his latest top five, in order.
