“He just wants me to make my own decision," said Banks about his older brother. "He’s just been saying to enjoy the process. He’s not trying to pound me to go to Florida. Just make a good decision.”
Banks returned to Gainesville on Friday night to watch his brother and the team in action in the Orange and Blue Debut. Although the four-star cornerback told FightinGators.com will need to have a strong talking to with his brother about dropping the possible pick in the game, the Jones high school standout was impressed by the young talent Florida is producing.
“I saw a lot of different faces. I had seen the same people every time I came out so I saw a lot of different faces, new students.”
The Scout 300 corner admits seeing those younger faces does affect him.
“They don’t have to sit out a year," he explained, "so especially me coming in as a freshman trying to play, that’s good.”
The defensive backs in the game and the defense in general did impress Banks, but what stood out the most was the relationship the staff aims to have with prospects and their players.
“They actually care about you, they’re not just texting you to come," he said. "They want to actually know how you’re doing, how your grades are doing, how have you been working out. They’ve been respectful, and stuff like that.”
According to Banks, “Notre Dame, LSU and Ohio State," are the schools he is hearing from the most, "they text with me every day." With a plethora of suitors the Orlando, Fla. native is taking his time and is not naming any favorites at this time.
"I like everybody actually," he said. "Every school is going to have the same thing, it’s just whether I like them or not.”
Banks will visit Ohio State next on April 15, and he has no set timeline for his decision.
