Offensive tackle Christian Pellage worked out Monday at Florida, the fourth stop in a week-long tour of college camps.
The 6-foot-7, 285-pounder from Brooksville Nature Coast started at Georgia last Monday, then went to Alabama and Auburn over the weekend before finishing up in Gainesville.
“I’m excited to go home,” Pellage said following his visit to UF.
He will head to Miami next weekend and take trips to Florida State, South Carolina and UCF in July.
“Most of these (schools) I’ve already visited. I just want to get a chance to work with the coaches,” Pellage said of his summer visits.
Florida’s Mike Summers was able to give him a lot of coaching at Monday’s camp session.
“We got to work a lot 1-on-1 because there wasn’t many people here. So it was good just getting some private time with coach Summers,” he said.
“Every camp I learn something, and here I learned something different. He told me I should take longer pass sets (in protection), which I haven’t heard yet. So I thought that was pretty interesting. He’s more of a teacher. … He’s been around a long time, coaching for a while. That’s a good thing.”
The Under Armour All-American plans to name five finalists near the end of summer, take official visits after his senior season and then make a decision.
He said academics and his relationship with coaches will be determining factors, and distance could also come into play. UF coach Will Muschamp and the Gators have now hosted him twice.
“I’m impressed,” Pellage said of Florida. “The program’s great. The coaching staff, I love them. They’re cool people. The campus is great, too.”
“Coach Muschamp said I’m a perfect fit here, academically. He thinks I’d play great here. They love the way I bend, the way I move for my size, my aggressiveness, the way I finish.”
