GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Homestead (Fla.) defensive tackle Pedro Sibiea hasn't been shy about liking the Florida Gators over the past few months. On Friday, he made his way to Gainesville for another visit and this time got to strap on the cleats and work out on the field inside of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
"I came here a few months back on an unofficial visit but to come back here and camp, the atmosphere of actually playing in the Swamp and everything was real, real extraordinary for me," Sibiea said. "It was like a surreal moment coming out here."
The 6-foot-3, 251-pound defensive lineman worked at defensive tackle all evening. He felt he showed a lot during the event.

"I performed and did what I had to do in front of them," Sibiea said. "I showcased my skills and I think I left them satisfied."
Sibiea also received feedback from his prospective position coach.
"Coach (Bryant) Young was telling me I have good leverage and everything but that I need to stay low," Sibiea said. "But other than that he likes my quickness, he likes my hustle, basically everything overall."
The three-star defensive lineman has previously mentioned an interest in visiting schools such as Alabama and LSU, but Friday marked Sibiea's only summer visit. If he is going to check out any other schools, it will be during the fall and via an official visits.
"I think this is the last visit I am doing because money is tight," Sibiea said. "I am going to try to get an official visit from them."
As for where the Gators stand after Friday Night Lights, it appears they remain at the top for his services. Sibiea says a decision could be right around the corner.
"Right now I am talking to Cincinnati but Florida is really, really recruiting me hard so maybe sometime around August," Sibiea said.
