Dan Mullen has been making some serious changes to the Florida Gator program, from ramping up the intensity of the offseason workouts to being open and endorsing new uniforms for recruiting purposes.
And it looks like he's on the right track. At least, that's according to the number one overall prospect in the Class of 2019. 5-star defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux gave glowing praise of Dan Mullen and the Gators:
“Coach Mullen is a great guy. We talk on the phone and I like what he’s doing at Florida. I know there’s a lot of potential in the program. I see a lot of great things happening, honestly.” - Per SEC Country
On February 24th, Thibodeaux released his top 12, which features other prominent southeastern schools like Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, & LSU. Sounds like Florida might have an early leg up.
