Saturday afternoon’s game in Miami certainly didn’t end the way the Gators hoped it would, as Florida fell to Miami by a score of 21-16.

During the game, Miami hosted several top notch prospects from South Florida, as hundreds of other prospects from around the country watched from home.

Gator Country caught up with a few of Florida’s targets and commitments to get their thoughts on the game.
