One of the most important in-home visits of the contact period for Florida took place Wednesday.
Head coach Will Muschamp, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin and secondary coach Travaris Robinson spent their night in Immokalee with athlete J.C. Jackson, the only wavering member of their 2014 class.
The Under Armour All-American officially visited UF over the weekend, and his uncle told The Sun his trip to Florida State may not happen now. Florida’s coaches presumably pushed for him to call it off.
Whether or not they did really won’t matter until Jan. 31 rolls around and his plans are known for sure. If Jackson doesn’t take the visit, he’ll stick with UF. If he does, he probably flips back to FSU.
Running backs Brian White went to Tuscaloosa, Ala., see some cousins — Florida tight end commit C’yontai Lewis and Alabama running back commit Bo Scarbrough. The Gators are still trying to get Scarbrough to officially visit this month.
UF checked in on three 2015 recruits who are ranked in the Rivals100, as well as a Rivals250 member who favors the Gators.
WR Dontea Jones, 6-5, 205, Louisville, Miss./Louisville (Florida leads early)
WR Calvin Ridley, 6-1, 175, Coconut Creek, Fla./Monarch
ATH Shawn Burgess-Becker, 6-1, 185, Coconut Creek, Fla./Monarch
OL Drew Richmond, 6-6, 313, Memphis, Tenn./Memphis University School
Florida also handed out offers to a pair of 2016 recruits — receiver Darnell Salomon (6-3, 180, Hialeah Champagnat Catholic) and defensive end Nick Bosa (6-2, 215, Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas), the younger brother of Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa.
