Inside the Gators asked Florida commitments and targets for a quick take on the Gators 45-0 victory over UT-Martin.

“They played really well on defense. It sucks that Chill [CJ Henderson] got hurt, but hopefully he will be back next week. All around it was cool watching the young guys play. It’s exciting because watching them play I can feel myself doing the same thing soon.”

  • 2021 offensive line target Austin Barber:

“I thought the game last night was awesome. It was definitely an experience to remember thats for sure! The atmosphere is like no other, the Swamp was rocking! I thought the team play was really good. Feleipe Franks had a very good bounce back game. Also it was good to see all the true freshmen play!”

“It was a great atmosphere for a game against a team like that. I love how the defense played, but it took a little time to get the offense crunk. The defense played an excellent game with the shut out.”

  • 2021 offensive line target Michael McLaughlin:

“The game was an amazing experience and the atmosphere was great. The traditions that the entire crowd gets involved in really makes the Swamp a special place. The team also played pretty good, and the big guys up-front kept the quarterback clean almost the entire game. I had an amazing time and I’ll definitely try to be back at some point in the near future.”

“The atmosphere was great and the team was great. The offense utilized the tight ends great and they had a good combination of running and passing. I hung around Gervon [Dexter], Gerald [Mincey] and Anthony [Richardson]. Tim [Smith] seemed like he was enjoying the game too.”

“I had a hell of a time. The offense had a great game and the defense, you know they don’t play. Go Gators!”

“The game started slow but they made it happen. The atmosphere was the same as always, the Florida fans know how to get you hyped. I hung around Gerald [Mincey] and Jonathan [Odom] and I talked to Issiah [Walker] once. Some of our other guys were talking to him.”

“The game was good. They just started off a little slow, but the offensive line play was good. The atmosphere was great. I hung out with Gervon [Dexter] and Gerald [Mincey]. The coaches always tell me to be a Gator.”

“It was a solid, good team win. I look forward too coming up in the upcoming weeks.”

  • 2021 defensive line target Shambre Jackson

“I was invited to the game by one of the coaches. The atmosphere at the game was amazingly loud. I liked it. The Gators played outstanding tonight on both sides of the ball.”

“I thought the game and atmosphere were great, I was able to really feel the fans and support the crowd gave them. The offensive line moved the defensive line throughout the game.”

“It was a great win for the Gators!  Both sides of ball played good tonight.  It was good to see the defensive freshmen on the field too! It was crazy loud in the Swamp! The fans really came out to show their support! Go Gators!”
