There likely isn't a prospect in the nation who has enjoyed a better two-week period along the recruiting trail than Saint Augustine (Fla.) Creekside three-star offensive lineman Matthew McCoy‍.

Over the last 17 days the 6-foot-6, 285-pounder has received double-digit new offers, from the likes of Florida State, Louisville, Maryland, Miami, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Pitt.

After communicating with offensive line coach John Hevesy and head coach Dan Mullen, McCoy believes there's a good chance he'll receive another when he visits Florida on Saturday

“He’s excited about me coming back and said I would look amazing in Orange and Blue,” said McCoy, relaying what Hevesy had to say to him. “He said he has amazing news for me. I definitely think it’s an offer. I got a text from Dan Mullen earlier today (Wednesday) and they are excited about me coming.”

This weekend's trip will be his second of the season, after visiting Gainesville when Florida took on Tennessee.

“The atmosphere was crazy,” said McCoy. “I loved the fan base and it felt special to me that they were showing love to recruits.”

Why all the interest from Florida and others all of a sudden?

According to McCoy it is because he has found his calling at offensive tackle.

“I was playing tight end and then I was moved to defensive end over the summer,” explained, McCoy. “I switched positions a couple of months ago, I started playing offensive tackle. Coaches are seeing I have the most potential at offensive tackle and how fast I’m learning in a short amount of time.”

With all of the new interest, McCoy said that he doesn't have a current leaderboard, but he has followed two programs.

“My favorite team was Oregon growing up, but I always enjoyed watching Florida.”

No Alabama, no Georgia, no Ohio State, no Clemson.

When I see offers like that and we offer I expect us to lead.

We are going to be fighting Maryland and Minnesota for OL recruits.

Thank you John and Dan.
