Although the prospect is a hard commit to FSU, he still wants to walk the grounds and experience Gainesville again. Lester visited the UF campus in January 2023, but the victory over the Tennessee Volunteers has caught the attention of the 2024 graduate.
“They played against some good guys,” Lester said They couldn’t finish in the red zone, but overall, I like the people and what coach Billy is trying to build out here.”
Lester specifically likes how Florida head coach Billy Napier stays committed to starting young players on his defense, which ranks among the top 10 in the nation.
“I love seeing the young corners out there; the freshmen corners,” Lester said. “That’s what I pay attention to more because I know I will be in those shoes, so I try to look out for the younger guys.”
The class of 2024 recruit plans to return to Gainesville at least one more time before the in-state rivalry matchup between Florida and Florida State.
“I’ll be back. If I don’t make it to the game before FSU… I’m planning to be back before that game, but if not, I know for a fact that game,” Lester said. “And I should be taking a visit here in December.”
