As he did last year, Florida QB commit Jake Allen was kind enough to speak with me about his experience at the Gators’ Friday Night Lights recruiting camp last month. This time, though, we went much deeper than just the camp.
If you’re not already aware, Allen is the crown jewel of Jim McElwain’s 2017 recruiting class. He’s also been committed to Florida for about a year now, and so he no longer gets the star treatment from Gator coaches. Rather, he’s built unique relationships with the Florida staff that… ah, well, I’m not giving anything more away, so you’ll just have to listen.
In this two part interview (which is nothing more than a result of YouTube not allowing me to upload videos in excess of 15 minutes), Jake and I discuss his performance at the camp, his interactions with recruits and coaches, his recruiting tactics and more. I hope y’all enjoy listening to my phone conversation with Jake as much as I enjoyed having it with him.
