Marqui Hawkins committed to the Florida Gators sight unseen. The Columbus, GA (Carver) wide receiver committed in May without having stepped foot on the University of Florida campus. Friday Night Lights was his first visit and it was a good one.
Hawkins loved what he saw when he made the trip to Gainesville for the camp. It was everything he hoped it would be and left a big enough impression on him that he won’t take anymore visits. Hawkins mentioned being done with other schools at this point. The trip was a good one and solidified a commitment that was anything but solid.
Since saying he is sticking with Florida, Hawkins lost his position coach – Aubrey Hill (you already knew that, but we’re slowly playing cleanup) – but that hasn’t deterred him one bit. Hawkins will remain with the Gators.
