Jalen Thompson Ready for UF

The Florida Gators are quickly turning into defensive back university and the recruits have taken notice. One big time defensive back will visit the Gators this weekend from Mobile (AL) St. Paul's Episcopal School.

Three-star cornerback Jalen Thompson is ready for Florida. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound defender has offers from some of the top teams in the college football world including Florida, Kentucky, South Carolina, Georgia, Nebraska and Miami to name a few.

Thompson will visit the University of Florida this coming Saturday, a trip he simply cannot wait for any longer.

"I'm visiting Florida Saturday," Jalen Thompson said. "I have a great relationship with T-Rob (Travaris Robinson). He keeps telling me they want me to be a Gator and I am perfect for their system. I am just hoping to see how great UF is this weekend. This is one of my big visits that could decide if I am going there or not. I want to see how it feels and meet the coaches."

Coach Robinson has done a fantastic job recruiting the star corner from Alabama. Thompson has great footwork, ball skills and quickness. He talked about what UF likes in him.

"My strengths would have to be my play making or game changing plays, ball skill's and return game," Thompson said.
