Mullen is wasting no time.

Newly-hired Florida head coach Dan Mullen is hitting the ground running at his new post.

According to a report from SEC Country's Zach Abolverdi, Mullen will visit five-star quarterback Justin Fields today. Fields is the No. 1 recruit in the country and a Georgia commit.

Fields committed to Georgia back in October, but was hearing from Florida before the Gators landed Matt Corral in the summer.

Whether Mullen can get Fields to consider flipping remains to be seen, but at the very least, visiting a player of his caliber this soon after being hired is a good way to create some recruiting buzz down the stretch.
