Florida wide receiver pledge is confident Florida will add a few in-state targets to the 2017 class.

Daquon Green returned to campus returned to Florida's campus once again this weekend. The Florida wide receiver pledge took his official visit to UF, and he not only cemented his relationship with the Gators, but he also did some recruiting himself.

Daquon Green took his official visit to Florida this weekend. Although the wide receiver pledge used this visit to learn more about his future teammates and coaches, he also used this as an opportunity to help the staff land a few more members in the 2017 class. After his visit, Green is confident at least two of the visitors will also wear the orange and blue. 

"I think we are going to CJ [Henderson] and Nick [Smith]," he said. "Because they really enjoyed it. They had a good time spending with us." 

The two in-state targets took their own official visits this weekend to UF and they were joined by a big group of Florida pledges. Among the commits were Green, Zachary CarterMalik DavisJake Allen, Marco Wilson, and T.J. Moore

"I liked everything about it [the official visit]," said Green.  "It was better because we had more time to spend with the players and hang out with them. This [2017] class is also a tight unit." 

Even though Green has been committed to the Gators since last summer, his official visit allowed him to grasp what exactly the staff plans for him. 

"When we talked one-on-one they showed the play schemes and how they are going to use us in schemes and different formation," he explained."They said they can move me all around and stick with my other receivers." 

Green also gained some confidence in his new head coach, after Jim McElwain's proclaiming, “when we get back to Atlanta next season, we’re going to kick the door down,” at halftime of the basketball game. 

"It was real good to see and it was nice to hear the words that he said." said Green. 

The Tampa Bay Technical receiver was hosted by many on his trip. According to the four-star wide out, Joshua HammondLamical PerineAntonio Callaway and Jordan Scarlett, all were able to share their experiences playing college ball. 

"They were telling me things that I would need to dow when I get on campus," he said."What they told us what us to e focused and be ready to play because the coaches are not going to take it easy with us. Then again they said it's going to be real exciting during the season." 

The conversation with the players and this visit only strengthen Green's commitment to the Gators. He says he can't wait to sign the dotted line on National Signing Day. 

"It's gong to be really exciting."
