GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- When Abu Lamin and DaVonte Lambert heard they would be paired for an official visit to Florida this past weekend, they sought each other on social media and struck up the beginnings of a friendship. After all, the juco prospects have a lot in common.
They're from the South, they play on the defensive line and they're coveted prospects itching to prove themselves at college football's highest level.
"We've got a real strong bond now," Lamin said on Sunday as he headed home. "We've been with each other all weekend, we all went out together, so we're definitely close now."
They now have one more thing in common. After a weekend with the Gators, Lamin and Lambert each emerged with Florida as his top school.
