Tampa (Fla.) Robinson 2025 three-star tight end Tamez Young came into the weekend’s UF Jr. Day holding Power5 offers from Florida, Indiana, Rutgers, and West Virginia, but with no stated leaders.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pounder left Gainesville with the Gators making a great impression on him.


What was the highlight of your visit today?
“The highlight of the visit was when the players were telling us their experience at Florida and about their recruitment and why they choose The University of Florida.”

Which coaches did you speak with the most, and what did they have to say to you?
“I spoke to a lot of coaches, but the most were Coach [Russ] Callaway and Coach Post [Justin Posthuma]. They talked about how much they were glad to have there today.”

Is there anything new you learned about the Gators today that you didn’t know before? If so, what?
“I learned that they are the No. 1 public school in the nation.”

What is the most impressive thing you saw either on tour of the campus or during one of the presentations? What really stood out?
“What really stood out was how everyone was treating each other like family.”

How do you feel about Florida after visiting today?
“I feel very interested in them and pumped up about them.”

It’s still early, but do you have any leaders or a leaderboard?
“No, I don’t have a leader, but if I did Florida would definitely in the top. I’m going on more visits, I just don’t have them planned out at the moment.”

Young is the No. 605 rated prospect in the nation according to the On3 Consensus.
