It has been a good summer for Nate McBride.
He was at Friday Night Lights to compete and he received the big news at the end of the night.
"After the camp, I ate in the Champion's Club, and Coach Muschamp came over to talk to me for a bit," said McBride. "He had to go talk to an upperclassman for minute, then we went up to his office, and that is when he offered me.
"We talked for a while, he was real nice, and I could tell he loved Florida and football. He talked to me about not usually offering guys my age, but he said that really liked me and that I am good enough to get the offer."
Florida will now begin to really recruit the 6-foot-2, 210 pound sophomore. One coach he will be in contact with is D.J. Durkin and McBride worked under him Friday night."I really like Coach Durkin a lot. He is a really good coach and we talked some at the camp. He said he really liked me -- he liked my quickness, my footwork, my speed, and my length."
Now that the Gators have offered McBride, UF is on his radar. He has never had a favorite school, but he does plan to see the Gators play this fall.
"Florida is a really good school," said McBride. "I like their facilities, their stadium is nice, and I liked how they ran the camp.
"I have always watched college football in general, so I have not had a favorite team or anything. I have watched Florida because they have good teams.
"It is great to get an offer from Florida and I will try to get down there for a game or two this year. I have some interest in Florida -- It is a great school."
McBride has been timed at under 4.5 seconds in the 40 yard dash at numerous camps/events.
