“It went good, I really liked it,” Hampton said about the visit. “The atmosphere, I just felt like I knew the coaches forever, they were very thorough about everything.
At 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds Hampton is primo size for the cornerback position and he says that is a big part of what Florida likes about him. He feels the Gators are close to extending an offer.
“They told me they like my size and liked my highlight film,” he said. “I felt like they wanted to offer me but didn’t say it. I will be back, sometime in the spring. I really got comfortable around the staff.
He hit it off with Florida defensive back coach Kirk Callahan as well.
“I talked to Coach Callahan a lot,” Hampton said. “He is cool. Even though he went to Armwood and they are a rival, he is cool.”
The offers are close to rolling in and he has one big one at the moment.
Hampton says he would like to make a decision about the school he chooses by the middle of his senior year and knows a few things he will base that decision on.
“I want to get along with the coaches and the players,” he said. “The atmosphere and academics are also important. I will look at the fan base and stuff like that.”
