Miami (Fla.) Monsignor Pace defensive end Wilnerson Telemaque was one of a handful of Jr. Day visitors who earned a Florida offer before leaving campus on Saturday.

The 6-foot-6, 250-pounder said spending time with the coaching staff is what stuck out most to him.

“The highlight of the visit today was 1-on-1 time with the coaches,” said Telemaque. “I spoke with Coach [Gerald] Chatman and Coach [Kali] James the most. They said they loved my film and the potential I’ve got.”

According to Telemaque, his first meeting with Florida’s new defensive line coach went well.

“Coach Chatman is a chill dude. He’s one of the best defensive lineme coaches I’ve been around.”

With this being his first time on campus, Telemaqe said he was able to see firsthand the new football facility.

“The most impressive thing was the facilities and school atmosphere.”

Though the Gators impressed, Telemaque said he remains open.

“I feel good about Florida, but I don’t really have any leaders right now.”

Up next is a trip to see the hometown Miami Hurricanes.


On Friday Florida extended an offer to Seffner (Fla.) Armwood 2026 cornerback Jaelen Waters. On Saturday the 6-foot-2, 180-pounder was on campus for the Gators’ first Jr. Day of the cycle.

Up first on his ‘to-do’ list was meeting with Florida’s new cornerbacks’ coach Will Harris.

“Getting to meet with the coaching staff was the highlight,” said Waters. “I spoke with Coach Will [Harris]. We have a great relationship. He had a lot to say, teaching me about the game and also being a better man.”

When asked what the visit did for Florida, Waters replied, “I’m feeling great. Like I’m at home.”

With it being so early in his recruiting process Waters said that he doesn’t have a leader or leaders and that he is leaving his options open.


Sticking with visitors from the Class of 2026, one of the top rising quarterbacks in the state was on campus Saturday.

6-foot-5, 185-pound Cocoa (Fla.) signal caller Brady Hart already holds 13 DI offers, including from the likes of Notre Dame, Penn State and Texas A&M.

On Saturday he said the highlight of the day was getting to spend time with the UF coaching staff.

“Being with all the coaches. Coach [Ryan] O’Hara, Coach [Rob] Sale, and Coach [Billy] Napier, I had great conversations with all of them. And seeing the facility.”

Hart said a couple of things stuck out to him after the visit.

“Florida has great facilities and the hospitality from the coaches and staff.,” said Hart. “They’ve got a great atmosphere and it’s something I want to be a part of.”
