Tampa (Fla.) Sickles athlete RayRay McCloud III attended the Gators Friday Night Lights camp last weekend hoping to earn an offer, but he left empty-handed.
Today, Mr. McCloud informed Rivals.com that Florida was offering his do-it-all son.
McCloud III worked at running back during the drills, but flipped over to cornerback for one-on-one's. He impressed in the competition portion of camp making top performers as he battled Rivals250 wideout Travis Rudolph on multiple occasions.
Mr. McCloud had a few things to say about the offer on behalf of his son. When asked if the UF offer puts them at the top of the list?
He replied, "It's a big offer. However, we are going to take our time and see all the options out there. The Florida coaches told us to do the same too. That's why you see all of these players decommitting. They don't see what else is available. That's we plan to do."
As a sophomore, he ran for 1,312 yards on 162 carries and 13 touchdowns. He just started playing cornerback this spring and has excelled on the camp circuit.
He has earned offers from Kentucky, USF and Wisconsin amongst others. Several others could be close according to his father.
Does his son have any plans to commit early? He said, "Not right now. Once he gives his word, he will be locked in."
The Gators haven't decided if they want him on offense or defense. They are high on him at both. Despite being new to the defensive side of the ball McCloud doesn't have a preference. He just wants to get on the field.
