Florida football recruiting: 2023 DL Kamran James receives offer – Gators Wire

By |
Three-star defensive lineman Kamran James has considered the Florida Gators the top football team in the state for most of his life. Then on Feb. 28, coach Billy Napier extended a scholarship offer for the Orange and Blue with James’ parents and high school coach standing nearby.
James told Swamp247 it felt like a dream. He was excited to receive the offer from Florida because he now has the opportunity to play college football close to home. The green light from coach Napier and his staff to play for the Gators meant a lot to him because it was important he stayed somewhere close to Orlando, so his parents can watch him play.
“It’s a huge opportunity and another step up,” he said. “It just opens up more doors, and I’m really excited. I’m from Florida, and they’re just a top dog in Florida, so it’s an honor to be offered by the top dog, my local school.”
Before Feb. 28, most of James’ conversations had been with defensive line coach Sean Spencer. When he spoke to Napier, the former Louisiana-Lafayette coach said he liked his size, mobility and potential.
The Gators are the second SEC school to offer James (Ole Miss) and his 14th offer overall. So far, he has visited UCF, USF and Cincinnati, and he plans to visit the Swamp on Friday. Finally, he said he isn’t going to make a decision anytime soon. He is focused on improving in order to reach his full potential.
