April 5, 2011Florida Football Recruiting: Commitment No. 9 - Gators steal one from Miami | Williams is finding out he fits in | ITG Recruiting Roundtable | Go Inside the War Room - Recruiting Tidbits
For the second time in a week Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast wide receiver Chris Black paid a visit to the University of Florida. Last Tuesday he spent the day on campus with two of his teammates. Today he returned with his family members in tow.
The 5-foot-11, 160-pound Rivals250 Watch List Member briefly spoke with Inside the Gators as he and his family made their way back to Jacksonville.
"I came down today to try to get a little closer to the football team and the coaches," said Black. "I came back because I'm trying to find out how I stack up to the players they already have. Coming down here to be around them and watch them practice is the best way to do it."
When the Black family travels, they move around in bunches. Accompanying Black on this trip were multiple family members - including two big UF supporters.
"My dad and my uncle really liked it because they're both Gator fans. They liked being around the Gators. That's who they've always liked the most."
The return trip to Florida was Black's fourth college visit in the last seven days. He spent last Tuesday at Florida, Thursday at South Carolina, the weekend at Florida State and then today back again at Florida.
What did he learn from his travels?
"I've got my focus down to the main three," explained Black. "It's Florida, Florida State and Alabama. Those are the three where I got the best feel for the coaches and have a good relationship with all of them."
This weekend Black was to return to UF for the Orange & Blue Debut, but will instead take the SAT. Then next weekend he'll travel to Tuscaloosa to take in Alabama's spring game.
