Gators hosting four-star CB this weekend

Florida coach Will Muschamp is once again looking to dip into Bolingbrook, Illinois.

In 2012, he signed a somewhat underrated linebacker in Antonio Morrison, who was a three-star prospect on two recruiting sites. The hard-hitting defender made the SEC Coaches All-Freshman team this past season and has already established himself as one of Florida’s best players.

His former teammate, consensus four-star cornerback Parrker Westphal, will arrive in Gainesville on Saturday for his first visit to UF. The 6-foot, 186-pounder has garnered more than 20 offers and is a member of the ESPN150 and Rivals250.

Westphal, like Morrison, is hoping to make his decision before the start of his senior season. The two have a close relationship and it could be a big help to Florida moving forward.

Westphal hasn’t put together a list of favorites yet, but Michigan is the presumed leader. His trip this weekend is critical for UF and will likely determine whether or not he ends up a Gator.


  1. You said it all,Gary. Something tells me if we would have got Stefon Diggs last year, all of this WR/weak passing game talk would be dead. He was explosive as a frosh. Spilled milk though. Hopefully the WRs this year flip the switch and the OL gets better with pass pro. The running game is butter though.
