DE Malik Langham says Dan Mullen's staff will take Florida to next level –

Malik Langham is one of several new recruiting targets for Florida under first-year coach Dan Mullen.

He extended a December offer to the 4-star defensive end from Lee High School (Huntsville, Ala.) and put on a full-court press earlier this month. Mullen conducted an in-home visit on Jan. 15 with defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, defensive line coach Sal Sunseri, linebackers coach Christian Robinson and wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales.

Langtham returned the favor this weekend by taking an official visit to Florida.

“This was my first time ever being in Gainesville. It’s a beautiful place,” Langham told SEC Country after his trip. “I had high expectations for the University of Florida and I saw everything I expected to see. The education is second to none and they have one of the top football programs in the country. So you’re getting the best of both worlds at the University of Florida.”

Langham and his family members toured the academic center, campus and football facilities. The 6-foot-6, 259-pound pass rusher also got a glimpse of the fan base during his trip.

“Everything about Florida impressed me,” Langham said. “I went to the academic center and it was amazing. That place really stood out. They had a nutrition center inside of it, so that was pretty cool.

“Then we watched the gymnastics team beat No. 1 Oklahoma. The fans were very supportive. I can just picture 90,000 going crazy in their football stadium. It’s pretty big. They call it ‘The Swamp’ for a reason.”
