Missouri tight end commitment Daniel Imatorbhebhe officially visited Florida last weekend for the Kentucky game.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder from Suwanee (Ga.) North Gwinnett loved the atmosphere in The Swamp before, during and after UF’s triple overtime win.

“I just enjoyed being around the players and getting the real experience of what it’s like to play there. That was huge,” he said. “I went through all the pre-game stuff, and then I had a lot of fun watching it.

“I actually felt like I was a player in the program. So that was cool because you never really get that prospective on unofficial visits. I got to see everything and take it in.”

Although Imatorbhebhe remains pledged to the Tigers, he’s still considering the Gators for a couple reasons.

“This visit helped their chances,” he said. “I made a lot of memories in Florida growing up playing AAU basketball. So I’m familiar with the state. It also has a special place in my heart. Florida is a great school. They were the first to offer me. It’s just awesome to have the opportunity to play college football there.”

Imatorbhebhe, who plans to officially visit a few more schools, will keep tabs on UF this fall. He wants to see the tight ends used more in the vertical passing game moving forward.

“The Florida coaches told me their evaluation of me is over,” he said. “Now it’s time for me to evaluate them. They talked to me about the B-position and how I could expand that role in the offense. They’re losing three seniors this year so they need me in their class.”
