"It was a good trip," Murphy said. "I think the thing
that most impressed me was how together the team is
under the new coaches. They were close to Coach (Ron)
Zook and the former staff but I was impressed at how
the players and new coaching staff have bonded. I
mean, they've only been here a few weeks, and already
you can sense the team focus."
The 6-3, 190-pound wide receiver has already had an
in-home visit with Coach (Billy) Gonzalez, who laid
out the X and Y production charts of Meyer's spread
offense. When he got to Gainesville, he got an even
heavier dose of good information.
"The coaches brought us in and explained the system,
how they're going to get the ball to us, and how many
touches we should expect to see," he said. "They
explained the offense, the defense, [and] they really
told us what to expect."
Having a team atmosphere on campus is really nothing
new, but Murphy described a bond between the players
that extended out of the eye of the new Florida staff.
"Andre Caldwell was my host," said the Eagle Scout who
is rated three stars by Scout.com. "He was great. You
can really tell that he is excited about next season.
He is ready to play.
"We all went to Lake Wauberg and had a get together
there. The entire team was there. We went to a house
party one night and everybody was there, too. We all
had a good time just getting to know one another."
GATOR COUNTRY TAKE: Louis Murphy is a solid
commitment who is ready to get to Gainesville as soon
as possible to start working hard. He's a fine talent,
but equally important, he is an oustanding person.
