Breyon and Brandon Gaddy have a decision to make after visiting Florida over the weekend.

The Gaddy brothers have some thinking to do after taking an official to Florida over the weekend. Breyon Gaddy discusses their Maryland pledge and what stood out from his time at UF.

It's decision time for Breyon and Brandon Gaddy. The brothers from Bishop Sullivan Catholic in Virginia Bech, Va., traveled to Gainesville this weekend for an official visit to Florida

"The players were great to be around," said defensive tackle Breyon Gaddy. "It was like a family atmosphere. It was just about being around a whole bunch of great people - thats what I really loved.  They really showed us a good time." 

The Gaddy brothers were hosted by defensive tackle and fellow Virginia native Kyree Campbell. According to Gaddy, Campbell explained to the twins, that the team was very welcoming to him  in his first month on campus and he felt right at home.

However, the Gators' staff had their own message to Breyon Gaddy, the depth chart at the defensive lineman position is primed for young players to step up and take a big role. 

"They need more d-linemen," he said. "They said that I can come in and play a freshman. Thats good, coming into Florida and playing as a true freshman." 

Scout's No. 26 defensive tackle also enjoyed plenty of time with UF head coach Jim McElwain, who compared the Gaddy twins to another set of twins, who left their own mark on the Gators program. 

"It was great. I really loved his home," he said. "He [McElwain] was just saying, you see all this, how all the people look up to the football players, you can be a part of that. He talked about how they put people in the NFL and they were like you can be one too. You can have your own legacy. You can be like the Pouncey twins." 

Florida's message clearly resonated with the pair as they set off back to Virginia. Now the duo will take the next two days to come to a decision. 

"It's just down to Maryland and Florida," he said. "I just have to talk with mom and my coach before we make a decision."

When it comes to the Terps, there is one lingering question. The Gaddy brothers committed to Maryland when Mike London was the defensive line coach at the school. London has since taken a job at Howard University as the head coach. His departure is certainly a concern. 

"It changed a lot because he was going to be the one to teach me, and I don't just want anybody to teach me," said Gaddy. "I want to get ready for the next level, so I need to see who they are bringing in." 

The brothers are set to announce on National Signing Day at 2 p.m. at Bishop Sullivan Catholic.
