Florida football coach visited Texas A&M commit on Wednesday
A handful of Florida’s football coaches have been out and about this week visiting some of the top prep recruits in the area ahead of official visit season, which starts next month. Among those hosting a member of the Gators’ staff is four-star defensive lineman Dealyn Evans, a Texas A&M Aggies commit out of Longview (Texas) Pine Tree in the 2024 recruiting class.
The 6-foot-4-inch, 260-pound lineman got a visit from outside linebackers coach Mike Peterson on Wednesday, according to Swamp247’s Blake Alderman. The Gators and Aggies are currently dueling it out for the coveted defender, with the Orange and Blue making significant in-roads recently.
“I loved it for the most part to be honest with you,” Evans told Swamp247 in regards to his earlier visit to Gainesville this spring. “Definitely a school at the top of my list. I liked watching practice and seeing the intensity. The coaching staff, I like everyone here. They kind of treated me like family.”
The rising high school senior currently has an official visit date set with Billy Napier and Co. for the first weekend of June. He also has the Texas Christian Horned Frogs and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on his OV docket as well.
Evans is ranked No. 175 overall and No. 21 at his position nationally according to the 247Sports composite while the On3 industry ranking has him at Nos. 146 and 17, respectively.
