Gator Prospects Visiting for ECU

The Florida Gators have done a very good job of bringing in top prospects to campus to visit throughout the year. The process continues this week as they host a bevy of promising future Gators as they host East Carolina.


Storyline: Louisville commitment that camped at Friday Night Lights when he was also committed to Louisville. Interesting that he is coming back and certainly someone to watch with the quarterback situation being what it is.

Storyline: Gator commitment that can play multiple positions. Was in attendance last week as well. He’s a speedy player that goes over 200 pounds.

Storyline: Deep threat receiver that is built like a college senior. Was in attendance last week as well and says he is likely going to be here for the East Carolina game, but not 100%.

Storyline: Johnson is committed to Florida and has been told there might be a chance he moves to tight end. He's a very good player as a receiver at a big time program in Dwyer. He's visited a lot.

Storyline: Every time this guy comes to campus it is big news. A couple of months ago he and Florida were not in the same picture, now this may be his second trip in two weeks and he is a big time receiver in the 2016 class.

Storyline: Gators top prospect at center and he committed at Friday Night Lights. Said he loved the way the offense is playing and is looking forward to being part of the offense a year from now. He was also in attendance last week.

Storyline: Big offensive tackle that will be a project but has tremendous upside. Committed in the spring when the staff visited for spring ball and offered and hasn’t looked back.

Storyline: Big defensive end from Jacksonville that will make his first game since committing. He is adamant about staying with his commitment, but has a twin brother that will likely go somewhere else and that is the issue that people keep bringing it up.

Storyline: If he makes it in it will be the second week in a row from this big time defensive end from just 40 miles away. Things seemed to be slipping ovber the last few months, but he told me last week they were picking up.

Storyline: Remains a big cheerleader for the class in terms of getting guys to join him. Top prospect in the class so far and probably deserves to be ranked higher.

Storyline: Really good prospect as a defensive back. Would certainly get a shot at corner and has tremendous size for the position. Has been tough to get to visit so this is a step in the right direction.


Storyline: As an Ohio State commitment, he is visiting for the second straight game. Gardner’s teammate and he is doing everything that says he plans on switching up allegiances to the orange and blue. He’s an athlete that plays quarterback in high school and could play several positions but I see him as a slot receiver or running back.

Storyline: The younger brother of Gators starting cornerback Quincy Wilson. Marco will miss the season with a torn ACL, but he’s a terrific athlete with still another high school season to play in 2016.

Storyline: Big defensive tackle that visited Florida’s camp in June and was offered. From Newberry just outside of Gainesville, he was also at the game last week vs. New Mexico State.

Storyline: Teammate of Durden, Parks is committed to Florida State. He also camped at Florida in June with his teammate and has an offer.

Storyline: Big safety prospect from Tennessee that visited this summer. He’s starting to add offers and is one to watch closely.

Storyline: Committed to Ohio State. Just down the road in Jacksonville and has been to Florida, but it has been a while. He is a big one for the 2017 class. This is certainly a step in the right direction. Think the new staff has made better progress with Trinity Christian than the old staff.

Storyline: Tremendous slot receiver type who is currently committed to Florida State. He's from a terrific high school program that the Gators have done very well at. Another one that is breaking the ice a little bit with the nex staff in visiting.

Storyline: New to tehe board. A corner with good size and from the heavily recruited Miami area. One to watch.


In the end, this is a nice group for the second game and non-SEC contest. The staff continues to recruit the NEXT class (2017) very hard and it shows with the group expected in on Saturday.
