Florida is among Christopher Curry's top schools after his recent visit to Gainesville. The in-state running back discusses the Gators

"I loved the visit," said Chris Curry after his unofficial visit to Florida this weekend. "It felt like home, because everybody is connecting with everybody and I like the new coaching staff." 

Although the Lehigh Senior High running back admitted he did not know very much about the Gators prior to his visit on Saturday, the playmaker quickly became engrossed into the program. 

"Florida really impressed me because I didn't know much more Florida but I know way more now. They are all about family," he said. "I talked to every coach and every position coach. They said if you worked hard enough, you can come in and play as a freshman and I liked that. In some places you have to wait your turn in line." 

Playing time is important for Curry, but it is not the only factor. Although Curry is familiar with Florida assistant Kerry Dixon, this trip was his first opportunity to speak with UF's new running backs coach Ja'Juan Seider. 

"He knew my former high school coach," said Curry. "I feel like we have a real good connection, a great connection. He said, 'if you want to be game changer, you need a game changer.' He said 'I can be that for you.'"

With this visit in the books, the Gators have certainly made an impression on the offensive standout. 

Gators are in"my top," he said. "I would say my top five." 

Along with Florida, Curry names " OregonOhio StateWisconsin and Michigan...I like how they all run their offense."  

Curry is now planning to visit Ohio State and Oregon next. But do not expect a decision to come quick for the in-state running back, he hopes to take his time and announce on National Signing Day. However, before he makes his decision he is looking for something particular. 

"I really got to get a feel of it. If I do't feel a school I am not going to go there. If I can't connect with the coaches I'm not going there. It's about what they can offer e as a person."
