One unique visitor expected in is fullback Hunter Joyer. Joyer is the nation's top fullback and with the switch to a more pro-style offense, he looks to be a much needed addition to the roster. The Tampa Catholic star could be the strongest player on the team when he arrives and he moves well for a guy with his strength and physique.
Wide receiver JaJuan Story has been the talk of many Gator fans lately because of visits he has taken or scheduled elsewhere. The 6-4, 200-pound Story was one of the more impressive players at the under Armour All-American week of festivities and certainly upped his stock in the eyes for the scouts on hand. The Gators would love to get Story on campus and secure his commitment, keeping him from making a scheduled visit to Ohio State a week later.
Another Florida commitment that is thinking about taking a look elsewhere is cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy of Pensacola Pine Forest. The 6-1, 170 pound speedster is a prototype at corner and is being recruited hard by Alabama among others. Florida would love to shore this one up this weekend.
A solid commitment, Madison Heights (MI) cornerback Valdez Showers will likely visit this weekend and bring his prototype corner body (6-0, 185). Showers is very impressive physically with great strength and surprising flexibility, which allows him to still play corner.
Of the non-committed players, the headliner is five-star linebacker Curtis Grant of Richmond (VA). Grant was a star at the Army All-American Bowl festivities all week and showed well in the game itself last week. Florida has been in the running for Grant for a very long time and he stayed very interested in the Gators through the coaching change.
One expected visitor that is likely to be difficult to persuade is Coral Gables linebacker Denzel Perryman. Perryman is a great athlete but lives in the very heart of Miami Hurricane country. The Gators would certainly like to make him an addition to the class if he would want to sign on.
Don't be surprised if even more visitors show for the weekend. This is a very fluid situation with a coaching changeover and the likelihood of a surprise visitor or two is big.
