UF visit impresses 2016 corner

It's been a busy weekend for 2016 cornerback Dontye Carriere-Williams. His Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington team played in the UF 7on7 Friday, the UCF 7on7 Saturday, and will be at Miami for another 7on7 Sunday.

Dontye Carriere-Williams has picked up a few offers this spring. Temple, Buffalo, Troy, Monmouth, and Jacksonville have all offered the 2016 corner, but he's likely to start blowing up in the future.

"Since spring, a lot of colleges have been looking at me, including Florida, so that's a big step. That's what I wanted to do this spring," he said.

"(I was able to really) break on the ball, make plays, and get interceptions."

The Booker T. Washington standout visited Florida Friday with his team for the UF 7on7 and he left with Florida as his favorite school.

"(I loved) the campus, the people around it, how it looked, how it felt, it just felt like home," Carriere-Williams said.

He was also able to have a good conversation with Florida defensive backs coach Travaris Robinson.

"Coach T-Rob, he said he's going to come get me, it's just a matter of time, so I'm just waiting on that," he said.

"I loved it. I'm in love with the campus, everything. Hopefully I'll be there one day."

The 5-foot-9, 170-pound athlete isn't not the tallest guy on the field, but he makes up for it in other ways.

"Just because I'm 5'9" I can still make plays," he said.

Carriere-Williams would also like to hear more from Miami, Florida State, LSU, and Georgia. This summer, he'll visit schools with his Booker T. team, wherever that may be.
