Weekend Rewind: Florida
By Derek Tyson
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida didn't bring many visitors this weekend -- only four prospects made official visits, but it was once again a very productive recruiting weekend for the Gators.
Three-star linebacker Jarrad Davis (Kingsland, Ga./Camden Co.), who was one of Florida's official visitors, switched his commitment from Auburn to Florida on Saturday.
Camden County head coach Jeff Herron said Davis wasn't even sure if Florida would offer.
"Coach [Will] Muschamp called me last night and told me that they had offered him," Herron said. "It had been up in the air whether they were going to or not. They had another kid that they had offered and had committed that they were waiting on some grades with or something. So they thought they were going to offer, but it didn't officially happen until last night.
"Coach Muschamp told him they were going to offer him last night and to enjoy his weekend and think about it. Jarrad told me today that he told Coach Muschamp that yes he would be going there."
In addition to Davis, Florida also received visits from new wide receiver commit Demarcus Robinson (Fort Valley, Ga./Peach Co.) and running backs Adam Lane (Winter Haven, Fla./Winter Haven) and Alex Collins (Plantation, Fla./South Plantation).
Robinson visited Florida with his mother and left Sunday afternoon. All indications are that the visit went well. Collins also had a good visit, but with 26 verbal commitments, the Gators are very tight on numbers.
Wide receiver commit Marqui Hawkins was also scheduled to visit Florida this weekend but because of a death in the family, Hawkins will have to reschedule his visit until January.
