The Florida Gators have made the cut for Gulliver Prep (Miami, Florida) quarterback Davi Belfort.
He narrowed things down to a top seven on Saturday and included Florida on the list along with Alabama, Ole Miss, Michigan State, Tennessee and Virginia Tech. Belfort has visited Florida three times this year, most recently on Sept. 3 for the season opener against Utah.
Over the summer, Florida head coach Billy Napier hit it off with Belfort’s father, MMA legend Vito Belfort, and invited the family back to see more of the school. UF is the current leader on the On3 recruiting prediction machine with 26.5% chance to land Belfort, but there’s still well over a year left in the process before a decision has to be made
Still, Belfort narrowing things down at this point indicates that he could end up making a decision before his senior year.
At this point, all seven schools are still in the race. Belfort admitted that he wanted to make it a five-school list, but he also said he could see himself playing at each of the three schools.
Rivals is the only recruiting service that currently ranks Belfort as a four-star prospect. Both 247Sports and On3 agree that he’s a three-star caliber quarterback, but that could have something to do with his age. Belfort reclassified this year, moving his recruiting timeline up by a full season.
