Contact period: Day 2 notes


With many 2014 recruits heading off for official visits Friday, Florida coaches saw several of their top targets from the class of 2015.

However, two of UF’s 2014 commits did receive visits in receiver Ryan Sousa and offensive tackle David Sharpe, who met his future position coach for the first time.

Florida coach Will Muschamp spent the morning at Jacksonville Trinity Christian. The school has more than a half dozen Division 1 prospects for 2015, including UF safety commit Deontai Williams.

Muschamp’s main priority is Jeff Holland, his No. 1 linebacker target and one of the top overall prospects on the board. The Gators currently trail Auburn on Holland’s leaderboard.

Some other Trinity Christian players of note are Florida State defensive tackle commit Kendrick Norton, LSU cornerback commit Kevin Toliver II and safety Ben Edwards.
