2023 Target Spotlight: Michael Daugherty Quick Q&A

April 21, 2021

Monthly access for just 33-cents a day or go annual for just over 25-cents a day

Here are 28 ITG Must See features FREE for all to read. From some of our Anonymous Player Q&A sessions to our Behind-the-Scenes look at Florida football. All FREE!



As a rule, unless it is a special circumstance, Inside the Gators doesn’t do features on prospects more than a year and a half before they can actually sign. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to churn out articles on kids who realistically won’t be top targets down the road.

Normally, Florida will offer anywhere between 250-to-300 prospects in order to sign 20-25 players per cycle. There is only mutual interest when they have already visited or have a firm date in mind to visit campus. Otherwise, it’s best to follow at a distance and not get too overly attached just because an offer was extended. 

With that in mind, while we won’t write an article, we will begin doing Class of 2023 Prospect Profiles with quick Q&As on top kids who have received offers.

What Florida coach did you speak with when they offered? And what did they say to you?

“I've spoken with Coach Rat [Keiwan Ratliff] and Coach [Corey] Bell multiple times and they both emphasized to me about coming to Florida and building a great secondary. They both talk about me coming down when June opens up and getting to see Gainesville.”

What did it mean to you to receive an offer from the Gators?

“The offer holds weight with me because UF has a good history of defensive backs ”

Are there any college football teams you followed closely growing up?

“I grew up in Georgia so I’ve always paid attention when Georgia plays Florida.”

Are there any programs you plan on visiting when the dead period ends in June?

“UF is one of them. UGA, Oregon, USC, FSU, Miami, South Carolina, UCF, Penn State, and Texas.”
