Pre-game with Shazier

Linebacker commit Ryan Shazier says he's very proud of his decision to come to Florida. The Plantation (FL) LB drove up to Gainesville with some other prospects from South Florida to see UF take on Kentucky in The Swamp. Shazier says he's doing his best to draw some South Florida talent away from Miami and to UF.

He says he hopes he can get the attention of DBs Tracey Howard and A.J. Leggett as well as DE B.J. Dubose and QB Ricardo Louis.

Ryan Shazier talks about the talent that is visiting Florida this weekend and discusses the skills these players have that he sees as valuable to the Gators. Howard, Leggett and Louis are all members of the 2012 class so Shazier hopes Florida can be in their ears early and often.

As for Shazier, he's excited to be on campus for another game and he talks about what has been a very productive senior year for him. FOX Sports' Laura McKeeman has all the latest here:
