As the final days tick down to National Signing Day, Florida’s board continues to become more clear.
Now, Gator coaches are adding a couple more names to their list before Feb. 2 arrives.
Last week, Florida’s coaches reached out to defensive end Trey Grissett and linebacker Graham Stewart.
Grissett (Warner Robbins, Ga., Houston County) is currently committed to UAB, but will officially visit Florida this weekend. He currently doesn’t hold on offer from the Gators, but has visited Gainesville a couple of times in the past. An offer could come soon for Grissett, especially considering that Tampa Alonso defensive end Anthony Chickillo reaffirmed his Miami commitment and is done with recruiting.
That leaves Shreveport, La., Evangel Christian defensive end Jermauria Rasco, Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer’s Curt Maggitt and Coconut Creek North Broward’s Tevin Westbrook as the last real options at defensive end, outside of Grissett.
Grissett might be a relative unknown, but now isn’t the time to just hand out offers, and if Will Muschamp is seriously interested in him, this won’t be an offer delivered only to grab another body in this class.
Stewart (Middletown, Conn., Xavier) is a Boston College commit, who seemingly will be harder to turn by Muschamp than Grissett. Florida only recently extended an offer to the four-star linebacker, and it doesn’t look as though Stewart will officially visit Florida before Signing Day. However, Muschamp is scheduled to have an in-home visit with Stewart this week.
Stewart won’t take a final official this weekend because he’ll be in Austin, Texas for the Team USA vs. The World game practices. The game will be on signing day, which means he won’t sign until he gets back home later in the week.
The in-home will go a long way. If he enjoys Muschamp, things will certainly get interesting, but not getting to Gainesville before he signs is only a good sign for Boston College.
