Coconut Creek (Fla.) Monarch three-star receiver Samari Reed was first offered by Florida last summer during the Gators 7-on-7 tournament.

The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder also has offers from the likes of Florida State, Louisville, Missouri, Penn State, Pitt, Texas A&M, and West Virginia among others.

Last weekend he visited Florida for the Gators’ Jr. Day.


What was the highlight of your visit?
“My highlight of the visit today was definitely speaking to the players at the end of the day and them telling us about what their experience was like first getting onto campus.”

Which coaches did you speak with the most, and what did they have to say to you?
“I spoke with Coach [Billy] Gonzales the most at the junior day event, he said he likes the way I play.”

During last week’s junior day, one of the popular features was the player panel. What did the players really have to say about this program?
“One of the players was Cam Jackson. The players said the program is amazing, and the way they treat you is just great.”

Is there anything new you learned about the Gators that you didn’t know before? If so, what?
“I learned Billy Napier coached monarchs own Calvin Ridley at Bama.”

What is the most impressive thing you saw either on a tour of the campus or during one of the presentations? What really stood out?
“The classrooms they have only for sports athletes is what interested me.”

How do you feel about Florida after visiting today?
“Florida is a very nice place filled with amazing people, who showed they cared every second I was there.”

It’s still early for you, but do you have any leaders or a leaderboard?
“Florida, Penn State, West Virginia, and Missouri.”

Reed is the No. 382 ranked prospect in the nation according to the On3 Consensus.

  1. Optimistic report and love to hear it. Seems like we still have positive energy despite our record the last 3 years. If we can represent on the field next season, beat the teams we should beat and win a few we probably shouldn't and go a bowl game it will go a long way toward getting it rolling again like it was last summer.
