Recruiting Odds & Ends

Each spring the recruiting season starts to gain momentum for both the prospect and the teams he is considering. Offers go out, visits are made and relationships are starting to be established. had the chance to catch up with a few prospects to see what they were thinking at this point in the recruiting process.

Teddy Bridgewater told me he has offers from the following, Kansas State, LSU, Alabama, Florida, Marshall, Tennessee, South Florida, West Virginia, FIU, Rutgers and Miami. Keep an eye on Bridgewater if he makes it to camp to show off his arm.

Lamar Dawson is looking at the following:

The Conference, fan support and playing time. A bunch of different schools are sending him mail and the two that are recruiting him the most right now are Kentucky and Louisville. He stays in touch with the Florida staff once a week. If the Gators decide to offer they will be right in the middle with Dawson.

A.C. Leonard is looking at the following:

Academics, playing time and distance and says both Florida and Arkansas are recruiting him the most. Even though he is getting looks from all around the southeast I fully expect to see him in the Orange and Blue come NSD.

Edsel Caprice will base his decision on academics, the program and coaches. South Florida is recruiting him the most at this time. Caprice is one of those players that is just starting to gain some attention as spring ball takes place look for his offer list to increase.

Joel Hale is looking at a number of factors including education, championships, relationships with coaches and is being recruited the most by Indiana, Cincinnati and Georgia Tech. Hale just recently started speaking with the Gators and hopes to build on his visit he made over spring break.

For defensive end Deon Lee it's very simple as he will look at academics, coaching staff and if he feels at home. Lee is not mentioned very often in recruiting circles but is very athletic and someone to keep an eye on moving forward.

Hunter Joyer is looking at education, overall football program and the coaching staff. Three teams he stays in contact with Stanford, Florida and Georgia Tech.

Marcus Jackson has not talked to the Gators in about two weeks but will look at the following: academics, campus lifestyle, overall success of the program and Miami is showing him the most love. He is currently committed to the Hurricanes and visited during the spring game and absolutely loved it. I fully expect to see him ink with Miami on NSD.
