Rivals250 safety Spencer Adams out of Matthews (N.C.) Butler took his third official visit this past weekend. The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder made his way down to Gainesville to check out Florida.
"It went really well. I really liked it," he said. "I got there around 3:30 on Friday. Once I arrived, I went to the stadium and walked around. Then I went to a meeting with the defensive backs. I got to see some of the checks and coverages they go through for the game.
"I really got to see what goes into the background of a football game. In high school we do our break downs, but what they do there is on a whole other level."
Following the meeting, Adams attended a basketball game.
"It was real loud," he said. "It was surprising for a basketball game. It's obvious they support their teams in track and field, basketball and baseball. It was good to see the fan base isn't strictly football."
On Saturday, Adams attended the Gators game against Florida State.
"The game was crazy," he said. "That was the loudest stadium I've been in, Clemson is a close second.
"I definitely liked the pregame. I got to go to the locker room before it started. I got to see how intense things were in there and how the players focus. That really opened my eyes.
"As for the game, it was loud. It was the loudest I heard it after Tebow scored the first touchdown. The ground was shaking and stuff."
Florida is looking at the four-star prospect to play cornerback. Did anything stand out from them?
"Definitely their technique, it's flawless," he said. "It is drilled in. I got to watch them warm up and it's natural. The footwork is crazy."
Following the win, Adams met with his host, Major Wright amongst others.
"I went to dinner and met Coach Meyer's wife and also talked to my host Major Wright," he said. "He was a lot of fun and a real cool cat. He basically told me if I want to win a national championship, this is the place to come. It's a top notch place to be and the people are great."
The No. 10 safety in the country wrapped up his trip by meeting one-on-one with Urban Meyer.
"I talked to him Saturday night before I left," he said. "He was definitely cool. He's a laid back dude. He told me I have national championship aspirations, want to play in the league, this is the place to go. I definitely feel he is one of the best coaches there is with what he has done with their program the last four years. He's a real inspirational type of guy."
Did the visit put the Gators in the lead for Adams?
"They were already in my top four with Michigan, North Carolina and Clemson," he said. "This visit gave me something to compare my other visits to. I see the pluses and minuses of all these schools, but no one leads. It's still kind of equal and I'm taking recruiting day by day."
Of course, Adams has already visited two of his other finalists, Michigan and North Carolina. Has he scheduled a date for Clemson?
"I'm not sure when," he said. "It's probably going to be sometime in January."
The No. 4 prospect in North Carolina mentioned he is still looking at a couple of sleepers that could land his final official if he decides to take one.
"South Carolina is still there and Virginia Tech is kind of around," he said. "I haven't been in contact with Virginia Tech much lately, but I know a couple track athletes that go to South Carolina and that appeals to me."
