Four-star strong side defensive end Malcolm Lamar was not always high on Florida as he thought they had too many guys ahead him on the defensive line. However, since the Dan Mullen coaching change, Lamar has changed his tune and even took an official visit to Florida over the weekend.
He told Rivals that after the visit went well and rated it very highly. He talked about the Gators and Florida State Seminoles being close in his recruitment and he also gave an update on that.
“I would give it about a 10,” Lamar said when asked to rate his trip. “I’d say it is still 50-50. I really liked it here. I had really good vibes.”
Lamar had been committed to Oregon, but backed off that commitment once Willie Taggart headed out East to Florida State.
The 6-foot-5, 256-pound defensive end out of Seffner, Fla. grew up a Gators fan so that might help Mullen and his staff down the road. He’s rated as a four-star recruit and the No. 20 recruit at his position and No. 60 in the state according to Rivals. He’s also got offers from Alabama, LSU, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisville and Miami as well.
Here are some of his highlights:
