Florida has wrapped up its 2012 summer football camp and it was a successful 11 days for coach Will Muschamp.
The first half of camp saw several prospects visit and some offers go out. The second half had much bigger headlines.
UF also made the Top 3 for five-star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil and is tied for the lead with Notre Dame for linebacker Alex Anzalone. Both are the top targets at their position and visited Gainesville on June 17.
Here is some news and notes from Session 2 and Mini Camp 2:
* The 2013 commitments on hand were receivers Rodney Adams and Ahmad Fulwood, defensive linemen Caleb Brantley and Joey Ivie, linebackers James Hearns and Quinton Powell, and safeties Keanu Neal and Nick Washington. Injuries held Fulwood and Neal out of camp, but the rest participated.
* Stayed tuned to Gatorsports.com as video interviews with Tunsil, Fulwood, Brantley, Ivie, Hearns, Powell and Washington will start being published on Thursday. One will go up on our website each day.
* Other than the aforementioned recruits, the only notable visitor from the 2013 class was Rivals250 defensive tackle Jaynard Bostwick (Port St. Lucie,Fla./St. Lucie West Centennia). He camped at UF on June 16 and spent a lot of time with Brantley, who is one of Florida’s most active recruiters. But the Gators still trail Miami and Oregon for his services and it’s unlikely the visit — or Brantley — changed that.
* On June 14, UF hosted coveted 2014 defensive end Gerald Willis III (New Orleans, La./Edna Karr), who already has offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, LSU and Miami, among others. He is the half-brother of 2012 Alabama safety signee Landon Collins, who infamously disappointed his mother on national T.V. by picking the Tide over the home-state Tigers. Like Collins, the distance factor doesn’t mean much to Willis and he isn’t afraid to leave home. In fact, the 6-foot-3, 246-pounder said UF was more impressive than his trips to Alabama and LSU because he favors Florida’s coaching style.
* The Gators got an early jump 2014 offensive lineman Garrett Brumfield (Baton Rouge, La./University Laboratory School), who was offered by Muschamp following his four-day stay for Session 2 and named Florida his leader. The only other offer for the 6-foot-3, 275-pounder is Louisiana Tech, but expect his recruitment to take off this fall.
* Accompanying Hearns on his June 15 trip was teammate Kendall Randolph, a 2014 cornerback from Tallahassee Lincoln. The 5-foot-11, 175-pounder already has 11 offers, including Arkansas, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia and South Carolina. He has no leader at this point but said he hears the most from AU, FSU and UF, which is expected to offer soon.
