On his first visit to Florida, Chattanooga (Tn.) Baylor three-star Shekai Mills-Knight spent his time with the running backs, but at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, physically, he looked like he fit in with the linebackers.

It was the running back coach though that was part of what stood out most to him.

“The love I received from coach [Jabbar] Juluke, Mayson Sparkman, Jack Knox, and Tyler Tomecek,” replied Mills-Knight. “I felt like a priority. Coach Juluke kept it real and told me that I’m a Gator. I loved the way he coached up his guys and they were able to have fun at the same time and get a couple laughs in.

He also spoke with Billy Napier as well.

“Coach Napier asked about my journey and told me I’m a great player and that he’d love to have on his team.”

Over the spring he already has remaining unofficial visits scheduled to Penn State, Tennessee, and Tennessee State.

Then, he’ll begin taking his official visits in the summer.

“I’ve got Miami set up May 31st, Oregon for June 7th and I’ll be scheduling Florida.”

He went on to explain why the Gators will receive an official visit.

“After visiting, Florida is definitely in my top schools,” said Mills-Knight. “The visit felt unreal and they showed nothing but love – the staff and the players. I felt like I was already on the team.”

Though he has three programs that he wants to officially, he maintains that he is wide open at the moment.

“I don’t have a leaderboard yet since I still have plenty of schools I’m planning on seeing.”


Milton (Fla.) three-star defensive end Tylon Lee visited Florida on Saturday along with a member of his Pace High School football coaching staff.

The 6-foot-5, 210-pounder was able to do more than just take in the practice, he was able to get a feel for what it’s like to be a Florida football player.

“The highlight of the visit was being able to watch film with the players and their practice and the tour around the campus,” said Lee.

As a projected edge rusher, Lee spent most of his time with Mike Peterson.

“I spoke to Coach Mike P the most,” said Lee. “He told me to keep working hard and that it will pay off in the future.”

As for his time on campus, Lee gave the Gators high marks.

“It was an amazing visit, I had a great time and look forward to being back again soon!”

Up next for him this spring are visits to Miami, Kansas, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and UCF.

According to Lee, he only has one official visit set at this time, he’ll go to Miami on June 21.
