"I thought tonight was great," he said. "It served its purpose and I am glad I came up. To drive four hours to see a school, you want to get the most out of the situation.

Fowler played a ton as a true freshman in the Will Muschamp style offense and starred in doing so. He was one of several freshmen that played a lot for Florida and that weighs a great deal on Yeargin.
"(Fowler) just told me a lot of positive things," Yeargin said. "He gave me some good encouragement on some reasons why I should consider the University of Florida as one of my top schools.
"His word carries a lot of weight and if he says it is legit, it is probably legit."
Yeargin rattled off a few positives in favor of the Gators at this time.
"Where it is at, the environment, the coaching staff, the chance to play as a freshman… basically all those things that are important off the field as well as on the field," he said.
He is having a hard time limiting his top group of schools but rattled off a few.
He won't list a top five, but Florida has put themselves in good position so far.
"I can't officially say," he said about naming a top five. "But I would say the University of Florida has secured a spot (in the top five)."
