Top TE Kyle Pitts visits The Swamp; hopes to visit Florida again

Warminster (Pa.) Archbishop Wood tight end Kyle Pitts details his recent visit to Florida. Where do the Gators stand with the top 2018 playmaker?

Kyle Pitts started off his summer visits with a trip to Gainesville on Saturday. 

"Everyone there keeps it real and I like that," said the Warminster (Pa.) Archbishop Wood tight end . "They are good people and I just want to visit a couple of more times." 

The  6-foot-5 1/2, 235-pounder was warmly welcomed by all the staff and players on his visit to The Swamp. According to Pitts, he was not only able to tour the facilities and campus but he also saw the coaches in action - as Florida hosted another summer camp over the weekend. 

"Everyone was saying to come here and enjoy your self, and if you come here you can play," said Pitts about his conversations with the UF staff. "Come here and be ready because there are a lot of people leaving." 

Florida assistants, running backs coach Ja'Juan Seider and tight ends coach Greg Nord, are both recruiting the three-star 2018 prospect. His relationship with Seider started before the coach even landed in Gainesville himself. 

"I met him at West Virginia and we talked a little bit there but then I found out he was here, and we are talking almost every day," he said. "He just keeps it real. It is not phony, it is not fake." 

Although his relationship with Nord is newer, Pitts says he likes the coach's style on the field and has been impressed so far. 

"We started talking back in December and when I got the offer we started talking a bit more," said Pitts. "Me and him have a great relationship...[Nord likes] how big I am.. and that can run routes and I can block."

According to Pitts, he hopes to visit Georgia and Virginia Tech next, two schools he says are pursuing him hard. 

"I just have a great relationship with those guys, and I have to get back down there." 

Pitts does not have a timeline for a decision, however, he hopes to find a school that offers "a great education; the players are good; and the coaches are cool."
