With eval period over, UF shifts focus to camps


After seven weeks on the road recruiting, Florida’s assistant coaches are back in Gainesville and gearing up for the Will Muschamp Football Camp this month.

The Evaluation Period ended Friday and the staff only checked in on a few prospects during the final week.

Five-star cornerback Adoree’ Jackson and linebacker Dwight Williams of Junipero Serra High School in Gardena, Calif., were seen by UF defensive backs coach Travaris Robinson, while receivers coach Joker Phillips watched Tarpon Springs East Lake wideout Artavis Scott at his spring game. His teammate, 2015 WR George Campbell, is recovering from a broken wrist and did not play, but he’s one of the top targets for the Gators in next year’s cycle.

Florida also offered JUCO defensive tackle Abu Lamin (Fort Scott, Kan./Fort Scott C.C.) and 2015 cornerback Kendall Sheffield (Missouri City, Texas/Fort Bend Marshall) last week.

The 2013 Will Muschamp Gators Football Camp starts on Saturday and runs through next weekend.

Muschamp and his assistants will hold two mini camps and two sessions, which occur on the following dates.

Mini camp 1 — June 8
Session 1 — June 9-12
Session 2 — June 12-15
Mini camp 2 — June 15

Some notable recruits planning to be in Gainesville this coming weekend are Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Acquinas defensive tackle Anthony Moten (Florida commit) and Immokalee athlete J.C. Jackson, who decommitted from Florida State on Monday. The Gators will then host Norcross (Ga.) five-star defensive end Lorenzo Carter and Brooklyn (N.Y.) Abraham Lincoln defensive tackle Thomas Holley on mid-week visits.

Carrollton (Texas) Hebron safety Jamal Adams will take a trip to Florida on June 15 as well as Tuscaloosa (Ala.) Northridge running back Bo Scarbrough (Alabama commit) and his teammate, UF tight end pledge Cyontai Lewis.


  1. I know this is off subject, but let’s hear it for the Lady Gators Softball TEAM. They battled their “ASSES” off to get their first win, but 15 innings you couldn’t expect much to be left in the tank. One thing abot them they gave their all and for one I’m very proud of their efforts. GO GATORS!!!!

  2. I have been a loyal follower of the Gainesville sun since the early 70’s. This column is one reason why. However due to the new subsriber policies and NEW $10 a month charge I will find my information and news elsewhere. Funny AOL, MSN CNN etc does not charge for on line reading but the G-Ville Sun has to get greedy. What happened to advertisments footing the bill?

  3. I’ve always wondered how much it costs kids to attend these camps and Friday Night Lights. Do major prospects get a free pass to attend? Are kids who can’t afford the cost given “scholarships”? Just wondering.

  4. JP, there are fees for camping, traveling, visiting and everything else that goes with recruitment (OV not included)…most recruits/family cannot afford it, so one way or another it ‘gets taken care of.’ HS coaches, friends of family, ect will car pool and get these kids where they need to be… GO GATORS!
