Notebook: Hammond shining on camp circuit


Josh Hammond is turning heads on the summer camp circuit thus far.

Last Friday, the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder competed in Florida’s 7-on-7 tournament with his Hallandale teammates and turned in the best performance of the three UF wide receiver commits on hand.

Hammond took part in Georgia’s 7-on-7 tournament Thursday and again stood out, according to a few recruiting analysts. His team also placed first.

By summer’s end, other sites will likely join ESPN in rating Hammond as a four-star prospect.

Burnett decommits from Miami

The Gators could be on the verge of landing yet another recruit from South Florida.

Following a two-day visit to UF, Pahokee athlete McArthur Burnett decommitted from Miami Wednesday.

Burnett spent last Sunday night in Gainesville and camped Monday. The 6-foot, 180-pounder impressed during his workout with the UF coaches, who like him at cornerback.

Florida secondary coach Kirk Callahan evaluated Burnett on May 29. The Gators are currently considered the team to beat for Burnett, who also holds offers from Florida State and Louisville.

UF offers 2017 QB

The Gators are still trying to land a 2016 quarterback, but they may have found their signal caller for the next recruiting cycle.

2017 QB Jake Allen camped at UF on Tuesday and was offered by the coaching staff afterward. Allen called it his dream offer and told 247Sports the Gators are his “No. 1” team.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder won QB MVP at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge last weekend. Allen camped at FSU on Thursday and has sessions scheduled with Alabama, Michigan and Notre Dame this month.
