Waisome on the Gators

The Florida Gators put a huge emphasis on the cornerback position for the class of 2011 and landed four top prospects including Valdez Showers, Loucheiz Purifoy, Nick Waisome and Pop Saunders. All four players are versatile enough to play other positions but all will get first crack on the defensive side of the ball at the University of Florida.

Southlake High School had a chance to play Apopka on national television and came up on the short end, 50-14, but Nick Waisome scored both touchdowns for head coach Walter Banks.

He caught touchdown passes of 95 and 65 yards and ended his night with three catches for 177 yards.

Waisome like so many of his future teammates frequents Gainesville as much as possible including the contest against the Kentucky Wildcats.

"The game was great," Waisome said. "The atmosphere at night is the best experience ever. The crowd is just so into the game and it feels good to know that I'm part of that family."
