Nate Craig-Myers, the nation’s No. 1 wide receiver, has visited several college campuses.

He’s also been to games at Auburn, Florida State, North Carolina and UCF.

But through his recruitment thus far, the atmosphere at Florida is his favorite.

“Definitely at the top of the list. Seeing the all blue, can’t get no better than that,” said Craig-Myers, who visited UF for the Tennessee game.

“It was a great atmosphere tonight seeing the Gators come out and put on a show. It was a great game.”

The five-star recruit from Tampa Catholic attended Florida’s season opener and told The Sun afterward the play of the wide receivers had a big impact on him.

That was the case again Saturday, as four UF pass catchers had at least five receptions in the 28-27 win.

“I feel like the offense overall did a good job and got their playmakers the ball,” Craig-Myers said. “You always want to see young guys producing and it was great to see him out there making plays.”

Craig-Myers, who will make his decision Jan. 8, plans to officially visit the Gators and will reportedly return to Gainesville for the Ole Miss game.

That would be his fourth visit to UF in just over two months.

“No doubt, I feel comfortable (with Florida),” Craig-Meyers said. “We went to go see the indoor (practice facility) and I just laid out on the field. It feels like you’re just able to be yourself around the Gators.”
