GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida wide receiver commit Latroy Pittman said he was shocked to learn his future offensive coordinator Charlie Weis was leaving to be the head coach at Kansas. But after his official visit to Florida, Pittman said he is more comfortable with the situation.
“It’s all good,” Pittman said. “It’s the same staff just missing Coach Weis. But [Will] Muschamp said it’s going to be the same offense, not much will be changing so I feel like they are on the same path.”
While on his visit, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound receiver said all 12 weekend visitors went to Muschamp’s house on Friday then went bowling. Pittman said it was a good chance to get to know the other visitors, specifically the three non-committed players Darius Hamilton, Josh Harvey-Clemons and Nelson Agholor.
“Yeah, I felt like they had a really good time while they were there,” Pittman said. “Hopefully we can get those guys and that will be a great addition to the team, but if not, it is what it is. I feel like they are going to have a good time because it’s an official visit, but at the same time, you really don’t know what a guy is thinking.”
Pittman and Agholor have been friends since the summer, and Pittman thinks Agholor is unsure of what he will do.
“Yeah we talked about it last night,” Pittman said. “He’s still saying he’s going to take more of a look and take some other visits. He’s still up in the air with everything.”
For Pittman, he remains firmly committed to the Gators and is looking forward to enrolling early at Florida.
“I’m 100-percent committed right now,” he said. “I’m just looking forward to practicing and sharpening up my skills and get ready for this [Under Armour] All-American game on January 5, going to orientation on January 6th and then starting at UF on January 9th.”
