Harrison and Family Treated Like Royalty

Groveland South Lake offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison made his way to Gainesville yet another time for probably his last visit before showing up on campus in January as a freshman. His official visit to Florida just made him want the process to speed up a little more than it is. He and his family had a great time on the visit.

For Jonotthan Harrison he always seems to like the way his family is treated when they come with him to visit Florida. The red carpet was rolled out for the visit and he took notice.

"I just love the way my family and I were treated," Harrison said about his official visit weekend in Gainesville. "It was like we were royalty or something. It was a great time and we didn't have to worry about anything at all."

While there Harrison got to watch a little practice. All that did was make him want to be a part of the team right now. If there were an extra set of shoulder pads lying around, the staff may have to fight him to keep him off of the field.

"They are looking great as usual," he said about the team and future teammates. "I am antsy to get out there and start working out. They looked very good. I just want to be a part of the atmosphere and be able to participate instead of just being a spectator."

He was hosted by two true freshmen. Former South Lake teammate and running back Jeff Demps took control Friday night while freshman offensive lineman David Young made sure to keep Harrison busy on Saturday.

"It was a real good visit, I had fun," Harrison said. "Friday night was Jeff Demps and Saturday was David Young. Jeff hasn't changed much, he is the same old guy that I knew in high school. David is hilarious. He showed me around and we hung around a lot of the defensive linemen."

With the Gators playing in the BCS Championship game at the start of next month, guys like Harrison have taken on a little more perspective about the program they committed to a while ago. These are great times to be a Gator.

"I am very excited to come in to such a great team," he said. "It is an honor and a privilege. I hope we can do the same things when I get there and go to a national championship."
