Florida’s pursuit of FSU commits continued Friday as receivers coach Joker Phillips was in West Palm Beach to attend the basketball game of Cardinal Newman receiver Travis Rudolph.
The Gators led for the Under Armour All-American in the summer, but he cooled on them during the fall and did not take one of his five official visits to UF.
Phillips has continued to recruit Rudolph since he announced for the Noles earlier this month, but it appears he will be hard to flip.
Heard rumor Travis Rudolph might still be interested in other schools, I just asked him: "I'm committed to FSU! & nothing is changing that"

The Gators went to see two of their top 2015 targets in linebacker Jeff Holland (6-2, 226) and defensive end CeCe Jefferson (6-3, 260).
Jefferson plans to transfer from Glen Saint Mary Baker County to Jacksonville Trinity Christian to play his senior season with Holland, who is teammates with Florida 2015 safety commitment Deontai Williams (6-1, 181).

UF also offered 2015 Palm Beach Gardens linebacker Tevon Coney (6-2, 215). The lifelong Gator fan will be in Gainesville this weekend for Junior Day and is on commitment watch. Some other 2015 recruits expected for the event are Holland and linebacker Roquan Smith, who was visited by Florida last week.
