Veteran coach and recruiter Eddie Gran along with other assistant coaches are making a major push in the sunshine state for major prospects, already securing two pledges from Florida players.
A large number of Floridians participated in the first Camp Kiffin last week, one offensive lineman that had a good showing was Tony Kibler of Belle Glade High School.
"I liked the camp a lot," Kibler told InsideTennessee.com "There was definitely a lot of competing going on there, I felt I held my own in that area."
"I expected the camp to be a good one, but it was better than I expected," Kibler said. "I went against some of the best defensive players in the country and felt I did pretty good. I won some and lost a few but overall I felt pretty good."
A couple of coaches made an impression on the talented lineman.
"I love the offensive line coach, Coach Cregg," Kibler said. "Coach Gran is also great, he is a great recruiter."
While Kibler admitted that the camp was intense and a lot of work, he feels it will help him this fall.
"It definitely made me a better player," Kibler said. "I learned a lot of stuff that I can use this fall. The camp was very high energy and is definitely a working camp."
Did Kibler's performance earn him a scholarship offer?
"Not right now it hasn't," Kibler said after the camp. "I'm suppose to give them a call in a couple of weeks and find out. I hope to get an offer, I like it there a lot, but it's up to them."
Kibler is listed at 6-foot-3, 285-pounds but played like a much bigger, stronger force.
