Weekend Visitor Preview: Huge Weekend
This weekend marks the final game of the season for Florida as the Gators play host to their bitter instate rival Florida State. Though the Gators are having a tough time on the field, UF is still in the running for some of the top talent in the nation.
Here is a rundown of those who are expected in Gainesville for this monster recruiting weekend.
The Gators have a huge slate of official visitors on tap this weekend, but there is also a large number of top targets coming in for unofficial visits. Probably one of the biggest visitors expected for the game is Homestead (Fla.) Rivals100 UF wide receiver commit Ermon Lane, who is making his first visit to Gainesville since the spring. Florida quarterback commit Will Grier will also be down for the game, and is looking forward to spending time with his future wide out while in town.
Other UF commits expected in this weekend for unofficial visits are Rivals250 defensive tackle Khairi Clark and four-star cornerback commit Quincy Wilson, who are both attending their second Gator game this season.
Another interesting name expected in town this weekend is Marrero (La.) John Ehret four-star running back Darrel Williams. The Arizona State commit was just offered by the Gators a week ago. He also plans to make a return trip in January for an official visit.
Norcross (Ga.) five-star defensive end Lorenzo Carter took his official visit to Florida back in September, but will make a return trip this weekend for an unofficial visit with his family. The Georgia Bulldogs are a team who has been making a move for the Rivals100 member as of late, but with UF getting him back on campus the Gators may be able to regain momentum. Expect Will Muschamp to pull out all stops this weekend to impress the Carter family to make up the ground UF has lost over the last couple of months.
Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Cardinal Newman Rivals100 wide receiver Travis Rudolph will also be on campus Saturday for an unofficial visit. Many believe Rudolph has Florida State in the leaad right now after he had the Gators on top just a few months back.
The coaching and support staffs will also have many top underclassman targets on campus weekend for the big rivalry game.
Included on that list is 2015 five-star defensive tackle Trenton Thompson, running back Jordan Scarlett, offensive tackle Martez Ivey, defensive end CeCe Jefferson and offensive tackle Tristen Hoge.
