Florida interim football coach Randy Shannon started reaching out to some of UF’s commitments for the 2018 recruiting class Monday night.
“I’ll talk to about maybe 11 recruits that are tagged (to sign in December),” Shannon said. “About 11 or 12 that were tagged and just communicate with them that the reason why you come to the University of Florida is because it’s Florida.
“A lot of times (recruits) get involved in who is the coach, but it’s the school, it’s the academic presence that Florida brings, it’s the family atmosphere that Florida brings. Those are high quality things that I think that every parent and every student-athlete want. They want to have a family, they want to have great academics and they want to be able to compete at a high level and have people that care about them and that’s what the University of Florida is about.”
