Weekend Visitor Preview: Nine visitors
WEEKEND VISITOR UPDATES:
After a month off the recruiting trail due to the dead period the Florida Gators look to start things up strong this weekend with their first official visitor weekend of the new year. This weekend the Florida Gators will host eight official visitors, including a new name along the offensive line.
Not only are the Gators playing host to several visitors this weekend, but many of their top targets will also visit elsewhere this weekend as well.
Five-star offensive tackle Damian Prince will officially visit South Carolina this weekend with his uncle. Right now it looks as if Maryland has the slight edge for this Rivals100 member with Florida and South Carolina looking to make a move.
Five-star athlete and Alabama commit Bo Scarbrough will officially visit Tuscaloosa this weekend and is still looking for a school to get his fifth and final official visit. The Gators are one of the schools fighting it out for Scarbrough's final visit.
Three-star FSU commit C.J. Worton was offered by the Gators last week and will host him on an official visit at the end of this month. This weekend he will be in Morgantown visiting West Virginia.
Three-star wide receiver Charles Nelson will be out west visiting USC for his first of five allotted official visits. The Gators have been hot and cold in their talks with Nelson and may not be a finalist for his services.
Three-star offensive tackle Andrew Mike will officially visit Arkansas this weekend before officially visiting UF on January 24th. The Gators are a team in a very good place for his services due in part to new special teams coach Coleman Hutzler.
Rivals100 defensive end Malik McDowell will officially visit FSU this weekend. He is considered a lock to stay in state and attend either Michigan State or Michigan. He visited UF officially back in December but doesn't seem too high on the Gators.
Three-star offensive tackle Derrick Kelly will officially visit LSU this weekend. It's been over a month since he officially visited Gainesville and it seems the Gators' chances are fading.
Rivals100 four-star defensive end Lorenzo Carter will also officially visit LSU this weekend. It's a Florida-Georgia battle right now for this top end but LSU and Florida State are sleepers.
Arizona State will host JUCO wide receiver Eric Lauderdale, with the Sun Devils the team to watch out for as far as giving the Gators the most competition. At this time Lauderdale has UF on top for his services and is planning to make a decision later this month.
Three-star offensive guard Jordan Sims will officially visit Mississippi State this weekend per a source. Gainesville is still up in the air as an official visit destination and looking less and less like an option.
