Florida visited three of its biggest priorities in the 2014 class Thursday.
The UF coaching staff saw Norcross (Ga.) defensive end Lorenzo Carter, Miami Booker T. Washington quarterback Treon Harris and Plantation American Heritage receiver Isaiah McKenzie, all of whom will make signing day decisions.
Carter received an in-home visit from head coach Will Muschamp, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin, defensive line coach Brad Lawing and receivers coach/recruiting coordinator Joker Phillips.
But with Georgia getting his last official visit this weekend, there’s the feeling that it could put the Dawgs over the top. Muschamp & Co. will have to had to knock their Thursday visit out of the park to overcome Carter’s upcoming trip to Athens.
Offensive coordinator Kurt Roper and South Florida recruiting specialist Travaris Robinson met with Harris and McKenzie.
Harris will visit Miami this weekend after taking officials to Auburn and Florida. Despite being the hometown school, Harris isn’t expected to end up with the Hurricanes because of their pro-style system.
The Seminoles don’t run a spread offense either, which has helped open the door for the Gators and the Tigers. Although Harris is currently an FSU pledge, his decision could come down to those two teams in the end.
McKenzie and Notre Dame parted ways this week after he wouldn’t commit to taking an official to South Bend. He will now visit Virginia Tech, which he calls his dream school and received an offer from Wednesday.
McKenzie also said Ole Miss was “sticking out” for him in an interview with 247Sports Tuesday. Florida is still in the thick of things, but the Hokies and the Rebels appear to be his favorites at this time.
