Florida tight end commit Kemore Gamble discusses Friday Night Lights, commitment and being back in Gainesville


Florida’s final camp of the summer concluded Saturday with a “Big Man” camp for OL/DL and a 7v7 tournament throughout UF’s facilities.

Among those competing was Miami Southridge tight end Kemore Gamble. The four-star recruit also camped at Friday Night Lights, and he said it felt good to get back to Gainesville.


“I’ve been hanging out with coaches all day, talking about family stuff, goofing around, a lot of stuff like that,” Gamble said.

“It was a great experience, very glad to get back up to my family. Ready to get up here.”

But being firmly committed to the Gators hasn’t deterred programs from offering the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder.

Gamble recently camped at Alabama and picked up a scholarship offer from the Crimson Tide, and it appears his list is down to a trio of SEC programs.

“Right now it’s ‘Bama and Tennessee,” Gamble said of the programs he’s considering aside from Florida. “Bama, they’re pushing hard.”

Gamble said he intends on taking official visits to each of his top three schools, along with two other undecided visits.

And the tight end isn’t the only Southridge product Florida is interested in.

Three-star defensive back Shawn Davis also has an offer from the Gators, and many speculated he might commit to UF over the weekend.

Needing more time to evaluate his options, Davis has pushed his commitment date back.

However, Gamble has continued to sell Davis on joining him in Gainesville in 2017.

“I’ve been telling him to push his head up, you know telling him to be a Gator,” Gamble said. “This is the place to be.”
