Florida unveiled a new passing offense in Saturday’s spring game, and it caught the eye of one of the nation’s top wide receivers.
Consensus four-star recruit Sam Bruce attended the Orange & Blue Debut with his former high school teammate and UF running back signee, Jordan Scarlett.
“It was a good game,” said Bruce, who is ranked a top-50 overall recruit by Rivals and ESPN. “They definitely spread the ball around a lot more than I thought.”
Quarterbacks Will Grier and Treon Harris threw for more than 200 yards combined. However, the Gators are still in need of playmakers at Bruce’s position.
“They made big plays today,” Bruce said of Florida’s receivers. “I’m just going to talk to the coaches and see what’s up. I can see myself in this offense.
“I can definitely make a great impact in the offense, I believe.”
The 5-foot-8, 185-pounder from Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas is currently a Miami pledge, but he has called himself 60-70 percent committed to the Hurricanes and will visit other schools.
That includes a return trip to UF.
“Most likely, Bruce said. “I’m going to Florida State sometime during the summer also.”
