One of the top players in America is current Gator commitment quarterback Jeff Driskel, who has already talked to Urban Meyer following the coach's announcement. He is waiting to hear more from the coaching staff about the plans for this weekend's official visit by recruits.
The father of Scout.com's No. 1 fullback said his son, Hunter Joyer from Tampa (FL) Catholic, is 100% all Gator at this time and has no plans to look anywhere else.
2012 wide receiver Latroy Pittman from Citra (FL) North Marion:
"Little confused but it's time for me to sit back and see what happens with the new coach."
2011 OLB Ryan Shazier from Plantation (FL):
"I am trying to find out what is going on this weekend. If we are not going to visit this weekend I might try and go to Ohio State. I might also visit LSU."
2011 defensive end Jeoffrey Pagan Ashville (NC):
"Shocked. I can't believe that he has stepped down. I wanted to see who the DL coach was going to be, but now, just don't know, this is crazy."
2011 cornerback Pop Saunders Deland (FL):
"I feel real bad because we just started talking a lot and started to build a relationship."
2011 offensive lineman Chase Hounshell from Mentor (OH) Lake Catholic:
"I am all Gator."
"I was really looking forward to playing for him, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't upset to not have that opportunity anymore. That being said, I completely respect his decision to be with his family, and I hope he decides to coach again in the future."
