Fresh off taking the Palmetto State's top prospect, Carlos Dunlap, to top the country's No. 1 recruiting class in 2007, the Florida Gators are after another South Carolina standout.
Rivals 250 to watch offensive lineman Kenneth Page from Columbia (S.C.) A.C. Flora picked up a scholarship offer from the Florida this week.
"It was amazing that the National Championship team gave me an offer," Page said. "It blew my mind."
The 6-foot-5, 270-pounder plans to visit UF during his forthcoming spring break.
"Hopefully during my spring break I will get to head down there and see Florida," Page said. "I have family down there. My brother lives in Tampa, so I am sure he won't mind making the drive up to Florida to visit when I go down there to see him."
The Gators join Tennessee, Clemson, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Stanford, Maryland, Georgia Tech and others in offering Page.
"Right now, when I look at all of these schools that have offered me I don't really see any negatives," Page said. "They all have great positives. I am real impressed with all of the schools that are recruiting me."
Page talked about what he is looking for in a college.
"My dream school would have a stable coaching staff," he said. "One that I knew that the whole time I would be there I wouldn't get a new coaching staff, you know eight or nine new guys coming in. I also want a nice size campus a population, one that's not too few students but not too many students. I grew up in the city, but most of my family lives in the country so I could do either or. I also grew up in the South, but my dad lives in Maryland and it gets pretty cold up there. Location and stuff doesn't bother me too much.
Page also isn't set on staying in-state to play college football.
"It's not really that important to me," he said. "I like (the state of ) South Carolina because that's where I grew up but going out of state would be fine, too."
Page plans to make several unofficial visits in the coming weeks.
"I talked to Tennessee about visiting them and also Georgia Tech," he said. "I would like to visit Virginia and Maryland. I also will visit Clemson and South Carolina during the next few weeks."
Page talked about why he feels that he's such a hot commodity.
"Besides being good on the field, I put forth the effort off the field," he said. "When it's time to go do strength and conditioning, I am mentally and physically prepared to go get it done."
