I mentioned in chat last night to a number of you (thanks for stopping in) that the staff was all over the place this week checking in on some of the top uncommitted players left on the board. To give you an idea of just how much is going on I wanted to give you some insight into where some of the staff was heading based off what the recruits are saying.
Coaches John Hevesy and Dan McCarney both went to see Latu Heimuli on Monday. Heimuli is expected to make his official visit to Florida this weekend. He is a long ways a way but I believe things are going about as well as could be expected for a player that has never stepped foot on the Florida campus before.
Hevesy then went to pay a visit to tight end Phillip Lutzenkirchen and watched him play in a basketball game. Lutzenkirchen like Heimuli is expected in this weekend as well. The Gators have a real shot with both if they determine this is the direction they want to go in.
Desmond Parks should be receiving a visit as well today or Thursday.
William Campbell received a visit from coach Vance Bedford but I believe the Gators are a real long shot on this one. But just getting the kid on campus speaks volumes for what this staff is doing with regards to recruiting. Don't be surprised if both Luther Robinson and Jon Bostic get visits in the next two days as well.
Frankie Telfort had an in-home visit with Southern Cal last night and the Gators should be up next. The most important factor for him will be his parents' influence. This is just a portion of what is going on right now and believe me when I tell you this; the Florida staff is leaps and bounds ahead of the rest of the coaches in the country when it comes to the amount of kids and miles that they travel.
I honestly don't know how they do it, it's as if they don't have enough hours in the day and yet they find a way to get it done. I am still predicting some good news early next week.
