One of the nation's top linebackers, Stephone Anthony took an unofficial visit this past Saturday. The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder made his way to Gainesville to take in his first game at Florida.
"It was really good," Anthony said of his visit. "That atmosphere was what I expected, it was loud and a really good atmosphere. It was good to get out and see that.
"It was my first time in Gainesville for a game and it was good for me to see that. Probably the biggest thing that surprised me was how loud it was."
The No. 4 outside linebacker in the nation was there for the game and gave his take.
"I think the linebacker play was pretty good," he said. "They've got great players down there and they played well on defense, they just got to work better on offense.
"I watched the schemes of the will backer spot. I like that position, it keeps you covered up to run around and make plays."
Although brief, Anthony did get some time with the coaches.
"I got to spend a little bit of time with them," he said. "They just talked about how important the visit was for me and their plans."
Overall it was a good trip for Anthony.
"I really enjoyed it, it was good to finally get out there to a game."
Previously the No. 25 prospect in the country has mentioned Florida as a leader, did the visit reaffirm his belief?
"My feeling is still the same, I'm going to keep things quiet and hopefully I can think this out."
Next up for Anthony is an unofficial visit to Clemson this Saturday for their game against Maryland.
"I just want to go and get reacquainted with them and see the coaches again."
