Maye Camps at UF, Will Take a Break

Probably the top safety on Florida's recruiting board spent a couple of days on campus this past week to try and get more familiar with the Gators. Melbourne Trinity Episcopal star Marcus Maye made another trip for camp, but he wasn't worried about showing off what he could do. Maye just wanted to check out Florida one more time. He did so for a couple of days.

We've done some extensive interviews with Marcus Maye lately, but this one was short and sweet. Maye came to Gainesville this week so he could see again what Florida had to offer. He took it all in and wasn't worried about trying to impress a coaching staff that already knows everything the four star safety has to offer. He left even more impressed with head coach Will Muschamp and defensive back coach Travaris Robinson.

"I showed up on Friday but didn't participate in the camp," Maye said by phone Saturday evening.

"I played basketball all week and was straight tired from that, so I decided to just show up, hang out, and watch everything. I didn't participate in camp but got to see some of the drills that Coach Robinson does and Coach Muschamp did. I pretty much showed up to hang out, be on campus a little bit more, and stuff like that."

Travaris Robinson has gotten good reviews from his players and prospects alike and Maye added more to those reviews.

"I like it a lot," he said of the way Robinson teaches the game on the practice field. "He is a very intense coach and aggressive. He works you very hard and puts you to work and tests you. Everyone working in the camp… he was even expecting them to do the right things. He is young and energetic which are good things. "Off the field he is a great person to be around and on the field he means business."

Maye reiterated that he just wanted to get another close look at Florida when he had a chance to do so.

"I‘ve been on the campus quite a few times, 3-4 times already," he said. "It was just about me hanging out with the coaches and showing the coaches I am highly interested in them."

He has no further plans to camp this summer and will take at least a small hiatus from the camp circuit.

"I am not sure," he said about camping any more this summer. "I will probably take a little break, at least a week off from traveling and stuff like that."

He also mentioned he is still considering three schools right now.

"It is still Florida, Florida State, and Alabama… mainly those three," he said.
