Inside linebacker Darryl Gresham Jr. is one of the top verbal commitments for Virginia but he hasn't ruled out other schools. He took an official visit to Florida and met with new Gator coach Urban Meyer over the weekend.
The 6-foot-3, 227-pound linebacker from Roanoke (Va.) William Fleming doesn't have great speed, but his strength and tackling ability have made him one of the top ten players in the state of Virginia. How did he like his trip to Gainesville?
"Man, it was a really, really nice trip," said Gresham. "Florida is a very good school and I just liked everything there. The campus, all the players and the new coach just really all impressed me. This visit made my decision a little bit tougher. Coach Meyer did a great job at Utah and he's going to be able to recruit a lot more talent in Florida, so you know he's going to get things going."
Is Gresham still committing to the Cavs?
"I guess I'm still a soft verbal, but I'm not going to make anything final until National Signing Day. I'll choose between Virginia, Florida, Virginia Tech and Tennessee. I don't know what order I'd put them in. I just don't know about where I stand right now. I'll let this visit sink in and then start to work things out."
