Top tier pass-rusher hearing from Florida

Apr 1, 2018 | 0 comments

At 6-foot-6, 210-pounds Auburndale (Fla.) defensive end Lloyd Summerall‍'s game is all about speed and explosion. As one of the most sought after pass-rushers in the southeast he has his pick of schools, including offers from the Big Three in-state.

The four-star rated prospect, who has over 30 offers and counting, offered his thoughts on the trio.

Miami: “I've been to Miami, but that's about it. They have great people, great coaches and I feel like I fit into the team. That's the coaches I know the best and they are recruiting me the hardest.”

Florida: “I talk to coach [Larry] Scott and he says we can do everything for you and give you a better experience than any other program, so why take Florida talent outside of Florida when you can stay home and play for the Gators. If I can I want to get to a Florida practice real soon.”

Florida State: “The coaches there are a little like Miami because when I talk to them they make me feel like family. I like how the new staff has all the ties to the state and how they want to recruit the best players in Florida. I think they're going to build something big there.”

According to Summerall Clemson, Georgia, Nebraska and Ohio State are some of the programs he feels are recruiting him hardest.

As for a leader or leaderboard, when asked he replied, “I should probably have a top 12 coming up. Florida State and Georgia will definitely make it.”

What are the most important aspects for him?

“The relationship with the coaching staff and how I fit into their scheme.”

THE INSIDE SCOOP: For now, though he didn't name them along with FSU and UGA as a team that is sure to make his list of finalits, he talked more about the Hurricanes than any other program. The key for Florida here will be getting him on campus.
