Kevon Seymour is quickly emerging as one of the top cornerbacks in Southern California and his recruitment took a big step forward Tuesday when Florida offered him.
The 6-foot, 170-pound prospect from Pasadena (Calif.) Muir talked with Florida assistant coach Brian White and on Wednesday is supposed to talk with first-year coach Will Muschamp. Seymour is for sure excited about his newest offer.

Although Seymour, who played with the back-to-back champion B2G Sports at this past weekend's Badger Sports Elite 7-on-7, doesn't intimately know too much about Florida's program he does know the broad strokes like Tim Tebow played there and the Gators routinely compete for SEC championships.
That's a big deal for Seymour, who said he's looking for a program that not only wins but wins big.
"I really don't know much about them, I just know it's Florida," Seymour said. "Tim Tebow went there and Cam Newton went there for a little bit. I don't know much right now but I want to learn more and I'm going to look at them much more.
"I'm trying to go to a school where I can really win. I want to win big. If they're going to win, that's where I want to go. I'm going to try to find a way to get down there.
"I'm going to have to find a way to save up some money. I'm going to talk with my mom about it, see how I can get down there to check it out."
Florida, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico State, Oregon State, San Jose State, UCLA and Washington have now offered.
