It met his expectations.
The Gators are in Lamar's top five and he high thoughts of UF.
"It was definitely a great first visit for me to Florida," said Lamar. "I knew Coach [Geoff] Collins (Defensive coordinator) from Mississippi State, so I have known him for a while, and that helped some visiting for the first time.
"Coach Collins is a great coach, he knows about defenses, and he has been recruiting me for a while. He was cool to be around and I really liked the energy down there. It is a place I have wanted to see, and it was great, so all was positive for me down there."
New Gator head coach Jim McElwain spoke with the four-star linebacker out of Roswell, Ga. during the visit too, and Lamar liked who he was speaking with.
"Coach McElwain is a real cool coach," said Lamar. "He is genuine and he told me how the Gator-family takes care of each other down there. That was his real message to me and he also told me how they need linebackers down there. He is a coach I liked talking to."
UF's depth at linebacker appeals to the 6-foot-3, 230 pounder, but there is more than that and the coaches that caught his attention on this visit.
"The Swamp has alwayes been a place I wanted to be in because it is such a hostile environment to play in, so I loved that. It was great to be inside The Swamp, the facilities were great, and the academics are awesome there too. There is a lot to like there."
"I am just trying to narrow my list down by the end of the summer," said Lamar. "Florida is a school I am considering and I think I will know for sure what schools I will visit officially before my senior year."
Lamar is the No. 24 outside linebacker and the No. 282 overall prospect on Scout.
