Florida sent outside linebackers coach Mike Peterson to stop by Upson-Lee High School in Thomaston, Georgia, to check out four-star defensive lineman TJ Searcy on Wednesday, according to Gators Online.
The Gators originally offered Searcy back in mid-February. After receiving the scholarship, he wasted little time scheduling and making the trip to the Swamp on March 18.
Searcy has already built a strong relationship with Peterson because he spent a lot of time recruiting him to South Carolina over the last few years.
He said he’ll likely take an official visit to Florida down the road. Besides the Orange and Blue, Searcy will officially visit Clemson and South Carolina. Tennessee, Georgia and Florida State are some other schools that factor highly in his recruitment.
The 247Sports composite ranks Searcy as the 243rd best player nationally and the 34th best at his position. The Seminoles hold the lone crystal ball for him currently.
