Floride pledges Kemore Gamble and Shawn Davis return to the Swamp with their recruiting hats on

Florida pledges four-star tight end Kemore Gamble and three-star corner Shawn Davis returned to Gainesville last weekend. The Miami Southridge duo discussed their return and who they want to join the 2017 Gators class.

Shawn Davis was the latest Miami Southridge playmaker to pledge to the Florida Gators. Davis made his announcement at the end of August. 

"It felt real good," said the three-star cornerback. "Me getting to ball with my brother [ Kemore Gamble], we're going to do big things together the next few years."

Gamble, who committed to the Gators in April, takes a lot of credit for Davis' addition to the 2017 class. 

"I reeled him in," said the four-star tight end. "We talked about it a lot in school and in practice. I just told him, why not play in the SEC and stay close to home?"

The Gators have been able to reel in several top recruits from the South Florida area, and that connection has helped earn the duo's confidence.

"They tell us how the campus is and just that Florida is a great place," said Davis. "I think we'll love it here."

Both Davis and Gamble made the trip to Gainesville on Saturday to watch their future team in action against North Texas, and both left impressed with what their team. 

""They're starting off good," said Davis. "I'm liking how their team is playing right now."

"I like how they send [Gators tight end him [ DeAndre Goolsby] in motion and have him run different routes," added Gamble. "He also blocks too, which I like to do."

Although both were on hand to watch the game, Davis and Gamble had bigger things on their mind on Saturday. Joining them on this visit were Florida targets: Christopher Henderson and Mark Pope. Unlike the latter, Henderson does not play with Gamble and Davis at Miami Southridge, however, Davis is confident the Miami pledge could be swayed. 

"We're real confident about getting C.J. We're going to grab him," said Davis. 

While Gamble is equally confident in his ability to urge Pope towards UF and away from Alabama. 

"He's tripping right now," said Gamble. "I don't know what's wrong with him. He must be joking, but I'm going to change that."
