    Three-star wide receiver Jatavious Harris could be headed to Florida. The Gators are one of the favorites for his services.


    Florida football fans know that Jim McElwain and his staff have a lot of work to do in order to make the offense more dynamic and productive.

    Could Jatavious Harris be part of that equation in the future?

    The three-star wide receiver, who has more than 20 offers, has cited South Carolina and Miami as two of his favorites because of the communication he has had with their respective coaching staffs. The Gamecocks and Hurricanes also happened to be the first programs to offer Harris in November.

    But the 6-foot-3, 184-pounder from Milledgeville (Ga.) Baldwin has received offers from numerous SEC programs, including Florida, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Tennessee. Harris says that the Gators and Georgia have begun to pick up their communication with him.

    “I’ve talked to the coaches down there (at Florida), and me and a few other prospects in my class are talking about going to take a visit down there together and see how it is,” he said. “I visited Georgia a few weeks ago and they showed a lot of love.”

    Among the factors for Harris in his decision is the education he will receive, the communication he has with the coaches and playing time. Harris is seeking immediate action during his freshman campaign.

    Anyone who has watched Florida’s offense lately knows it needs an injection of new life. The Class of 2018 prospect could help the Gators next fall if he elects to head to Gainesville.

    Harris, who also runs track, has found it difficult to take many visits thus far.

    “I don’t have any visits set yet because it’s track season and I have track meets every weekend, so it’s hard to schedule visits,” he said.

    You can bet the visits will eventually come, though, as will more offers because he’s an intriguing prospect.

    “I’m a wide receiver who can stretch the field and can catch the ball really good,” Harris said. “I can do different things on the field with my talent.

    “I think I have good speed, size and hands.”
