Add another satellite camp to Florida’s list.

The Gators will host a satellite camp in Mobile, Ala., on June 17 at Blount High School, according to Ben Thomas from the Alabama Media Group.

This marks the third satellite camp Florida is scheduled to be involved in this year. Gators coaches will also hold a satellite camp in Macon, Ga., at Mercer University on June 3-4, and in Jacksonville at Trinity Christian Academy on June 8.

Blount High School is home to recent 2017 Gators commit Kadarius Toney.

Like Georgia, Alabama is an important state in the Gators’ recruiting plan. Florida signed three prospects from Alabama in 2016 and the only recruit from outside the state of Florida currently in its 2017 recruiting class is from Alabama.

“It’s one of those deals where you’re going to do whatever you can within the rules to help you be successful and that’s what everybody is doing,” coach Jim McElwain said of satellite camps last week.
