Ponte Vedra (Fla.) Nease sophomore inside linebacker Kain Daub made the short journey to Gainesville on Saturday afternoon to check out the University of Florida and attend their annual spring game.
"It was a very nice campus," Daub said. "It is just a very nice school. It is big. It is a nice place to be. I had a good time there."
The 6-foot-3, 227-pound rising junior was unable to speak with Will Muschamp or his staff during the visit, but he was getting a recruiting pitch from some of the fellow recruits he spent time with.

"I was there hanging out with Demarcus Walker, Ahmad Fulwood, and Nick Washington," Daub said. "(Nick) was trying to get me to commit. He was just talking to me about going there."
Daub, who is working with no specific timeline for making a decision, said that Washington's pitch was impressive but he didn't consider joining the Gators just yet. With 22 months remaining in his recruiting process, he says that a very early leader emerged after Saturday's visit.
"I am very interested in Florida," Daub said. "Florida stands out. It just felt like home there."
In addition to an offer from Florida, Daub also reports offers from Florida State, Ohio State, and South Carolina. He intends to visit Florida State for their spring game on Saturday. He didn't know of any other visit plans beyond next weekend.
As a sophomore, Daub recorded 108 tackles, 12 sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and an interception.
