Leonard Says He's 100% Gator

One of the top playmaking tight ends in the country is Jacksonville (FL) University Christian superstar Alcorus Leonard. Leonard, a 6-3 and 230-pound dynamic prospect has been a commitment for the University of Florida for months.

A.C. Leonard had another great game Friday night with 10 catches for more than 150 yards and is currently the nation's fifth best tight end prospect.

Leonard is currently in Nebraska for his official visit but found time to stay in touch with Gator commitments over the weekend. He is set to fly home on Monday. Leonard laughed when he learned he has been moved to a "soft verbal" because of the trip to Nebraska.

"Come on man, you know I am 100 percent a Florida Gator."

He has wanted to be a Gator for as long as he can remember but will not pass up an opportunity to take a few trips down the road and the Gator coaching staff has discussed it and is well aware of his desire to become a Florida Gator. There has been no lack of communication between Leonard and the Gator coaches.

Florida fans will need to get ready as he will probably take a few more visits but at the end of the day I don't think there will be anything to worry about as maybe I once did.
