Weekend Visitor Preview: Nation's #1 visiting
This weekend the Florida Gator coaching staff will have their hands full, between looking to avoid a four game losing skid, winning their annual homecoming game against Vanderbilt while also hosting a multitude of top prospects coming in from around the country.
Inside the Gators takes a look at just who is expected in the Swamp this weekend.
One of the most interesting names due in this weekend is Perry (Fla.) Taylor County four-star tight end Moral Stephens. Earlier this week Stephens had plans to officially visit Miami, but that fell through. The Florida coaching staff has shown quite a bit of interest in this Rivals250 member over the last few weeks. There has been some smoke lately that Florida could possibly offer this 6-foot-3, 210-pounder while he is in town.
Another member of the Class of 2014 who will be making it to the game this weekend is Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln four-star cornerback Kendall Randolph. At this time Randolph does not have an offer from the Gators, but used to hear from them quite a bit. It will be interesting to see what the coaches have to say to Randolph this weekend, and how interested UF is in this Rivals250 member with four cornerbacks currently committed for this cycle.
Many of the big names that will be in town this weekend for the UF-Vanderbilt are in the 2015 class.
Glen St. Mary (Fla.) Baker County 2015 four-star defensive end CeCe Jefferson will watch Florida play at home for the first time this season.
A few other names from the 2015 class that are expected at the game this weekend are defensive end Arden Key, running back Jacques Patrick, running back T.J. Simmons, offensive tackle Jake Fruhmorgen and defensive end Byron Cowart.
Commits & Targets Visiting Elsewhere
Jacksonville (Fla) Providence 2014 offensive tackle David Sharpe will take his first official of the fall to Tennessee when they host Auburn. New schools have been getting involved with Sharpe, who still has Florida in the mix, but slipping.
Another prospect expected in Knoxville this weekend is Gardena (Cali.) Junipero Serra five-star athlete Adoree' Jackson. This Rivals100 member visited Tennessee unofficially over the summer and spoke highly of the visit. The Volunteers will have to shock and awe him to keep their name in the race with USC, Florida, FSU and LSU.
Five star linebacker Raekwon McMillan will take his official visit to Alabama this weekend for the Tide's big SEC West match up against the LSU Tigers.
Two Florida commitments will also be at Alabama this weekend. Florida three-star tight end commit C'Yontai Lewis and four-star cornerback commit Duke Dawson are scheduled to be in Tuscaloosa. Both say they are 100% committed to the Gators and are going only to see a big game between the two teams.
