Prospects talk about the Gators

It was an ugly Saturday night in The Swamp and some big time prospects were on hand to watch. Others were at home watching the Gators in the 42-13 loss to Missouri. All were surprised at the outcome, but quite a few we contacted had some very even-keeled comments about the game.

We were able to get in touch with several Gator prospects and find out what they thought of the game and the Gators in general.

Some prospects went philosophical when asked the question. Big time 4-star receiver prospect Antonio Callaway was one of those. He wasn’t a teammate of Florida freshman quarterback Treon Harris, but does now play for the same school as Harris did a year ago, Booker T. Washington in Miami.

His message was simple in that working as a team will make things better.

“Teamwork will divide the task and double the success.” - Antonio Callaway

A couple of prime prospects seemed stunned at what they saw, even a day later. Kendrick Norton of Jacksonville Trinity Christian is one of the top defensive tackles still left on the board and Javarius Davis is a top 4-star slot receiver from Jacksonville’s Ed White High School. Both are big time targets for the Gators.

“It looked terrible. But, the defense looked great.” – Kendrick Norton

“Shocking.” - Javarius Davis

Most of the prospects we heard from believe the Gators can get better and want to see what happens. This included commitments tight end Kalif Jackson and George Brown, 4-star running back Bryce Love, top corner prospect Jeremy McDuffie, and 2016 star receiver Rick Wells.

“Extremely tough loss. I am curious to see how we will bounce back.” - Kalif Jackson

“My take on the game is some players have to step up and make plays. But they have to finish, no matter the score.” - Rick Wells

“Defense did great, offense just needs to limit turnovers and get points on the board. - George Brown

“Tough loss for the Gators but I have faith they will bounce back stronger!” – Bryce Love

“They just need to limit their mistakes and get their confidence back.” – Jeremy McDuffie
