Two months after pulling the trigger and committing to Florida, Kemore Gamble was back in Gainesville. The four-star Miami Southridge playmaker returned to the Swamp on Friday to participate in the Gators' 7-on-7 tournament. However, Scout's No. 13 tight end in the country did not just participate in the camp, he blew away the competition. Gamble particularly had a great night against Georgia pledge, William Poole.
"It was good playing against him. It was my first time meeting him," said Gamble. "I beat him a couple of times though."
Apart from dominating defensive backs for a few hours, the South Florida native also was able to connect with the UF staff once again, especially with wide receivers coach, Kerry Dixon.
Dixon "is like my dad,” said Gamble. “He is always on me about my school work-talking to my family.. He tells me to stay focused, to stay on my grades and to stay working."
The Florida assistant has also traveled down to Miami to check in on the number one tight end in Florida this spring.
"It was awesome," said Gamble. "I felt comfortable with them [the coaches] there. I felt more 'turnt up at practice."
The Gators were not only in Dade County to see Gamble; Florida is recruiting several of his teammates as well.
“I am trying to get them to offer Antwan [Collier], I am trying to get [Miami commits] Rodney Scott and Bentavious Thompson [to flip to Florida] and then [2018 wide receiver] Mark Pope, and [2017 cornerback] Shawn Davis too. I'm also trying to get the cornerback from Columbus, Chris Henderson [to flip from Miami].”
According to the 6-foot-4, 216-pounder, "Mississippi State, LSU and West Virginia" continue to pursue him, but his commitment remains solid with Florida. Although some schools continue to recruit the Gators pledge as a wide receiver, Florida sees him more in an H-back role.
"I'll play wherever they need me."
The Southridge team traveled to UCF on Saturday and then are expected to visit Mississippi State next week.
