Ivey visits Gators on birthday

The nation's top offensive line prospect, Martez Ivey,visited the Gators on his birthday today.

Happy birthday to the nation’s top offensive line prospect Martez Ivey (Apopka, Fla.). For his 19th birthday he spent time in Gainesville and made an unofficial visit to the University of Florida.

”I am done with the visit and have been here a couple of times already,” Ivey said. “This visit [to Florida] stood out the most. They showed me how much they care for me. I hung out with some players and they talked about their experience [here] and we were talking about different visits to other schools. One of the things I learned today is that there is a family atmosphere here. They are not giving up on you and will always be there for you.”

Ivey, 6-foot-6, 271-pounds, had a chance to sit down once again with Florida offensive line coach Mike Summers. The two talked about pass pro in today’s one on one meeting.”It was pretty good talk. We always talk football,” Ivey said. “The last time it was run blocking. This time it was pass pro. But honestly, there is more to it than everyone sees. He’s a smart guy who teaches you the little things. The most important things are the little things.”

Ivey also had a good talk with coach Will Muschamp.

”He basically said that what they are building don’t be surprised,” Ivey said. “It’s not going to be like last year and have a bunch of guys hurt. They are looking to show something this season.

Ivey is a five-star and the No. 4 overall prospect in the 2015 class. It’s been a battle between the Gators and Tigers. Tomorrow he makes another trip to Auburn.

”Florida and Auburn is crazy,” Ivey said. “I am headed to Auburn tomorrow. Today is my birthday and I hung out at Florida.”

Ivey has no time table for his decision. He’s too mixed up between the two schools.

”I am still not sure,” Ivey said. I may say one thing and do another. I just don’t know right now.
