"They told us he had an offer," Coach Banks said Monday. "Coach Lewis, Coach White, Coach Summers, and Coach Muschamp came over to visit today."
Watching Bello play, he is relentless as he plows through defenders and pushes them several yards away from the line of scrimmage. His feet are incredibly quick and it all stands out on tape. They you see him in person and realize just how big he is.
"They said they like that he is a freak of an athlete," banks said of the Florida coaches. "To see a kid that big and move like that on film, you just don't see that very often."
A native of Nigeria, Bello transplanted so that he could earn a college scholarship and play football. Still, he has a lot to learn, including exactly what went down when he did get an offer.
"I had to sit down with him and explain to him what everything meant," Banks said. "Once I talked to him, he knew exactly what I was talking about."
Others are likely soon to follow. Tennessee will pay its third visit in the last two weeks on Tuesday and things are heating up with the Vols as well.
"Tennessee came back twice the other day and I think they were waiting on someone else (to offer)," coach Banks said with a laugh. "They are coming back tomorrow (Tuesday)."
But, the gators got their hat in the ring first and now Bello should be visiting the Florida campus on Saturday.
"We are going to come up there to Florida on Junior Day Feb.1," Banks said.
