The St. Paul, Minn. prospect has visited the three schools closest to him. He hopes to eventually make it down to Gainesville, with Friday Night Lights still a possibility.
“I’ve been to all three except Florida,” Floyd said. “I’m hoping to be there for Friday Night Lights. I’m trying to have my mom bring me down there. If I have enough money then I’ll come down.”
The Florida coach Michael Floyd talks to the most would be his position coach, Billy Gonzales, if he signed with the Gators.
“I talk to Coach Gonzales a lot,” Floyd said. “Our relationship isn’t too strong right now. We talk most of the time, and when we do it’s just about life. It’s not a whole lot of recruiting stuff, which I actually kind of like.”
Before the hyperventilating begins, things still look good for the Irish here although after the Arrelious Benn situation last year, news like this is sure to cause the blood pressure of a few Irish fans to rise.
Floyd is pretty much the undisputed #1 target at receiver for the Irish this year and with things not looking so good with Brice Butler and not too many other receivers on the horizon, Floyd is probably the most critical recruit left on the board for Notre Dame. With the stunning early success along the defensive line, wide receiver is probably the most glaring need left in this year’s class making Flloyd all that much more important for Weis and Notre Dame.
Let’s hope this is just a case of Floyd wanting to have a little fun in the sun down in Florida, but with recruiting you never know. Many feel Floyd is a heavy lean for Notre Dame, but a trip to Gainesville with everyone’s favorite former wide receiver coach isn’t exactly the most desirable situation.
