Will Muschamp’s football camp is over with and players are now starting to narrow down their lists’ and make their college decision.
GatorCountry.com is going to look at ten players that Florida fans should keep a close eye on over the next month or so.
This list doesn’t mean that a player will make a commitment to Florida, but that the player is; A.) Going to visit Florida soon or B.) High on Florida’s list.
Jacksonville (Fla.) Providence offensive lineman David Sharpe
With Delroy Baker choosing Indiana and Denzel Ward choosing Purdue, the need to land Sharpe is higher than ever before. There is no doubt that Will Muschamp wants to land a top notch tackle in this class and Sharpe can fill that need perfectly. Sharpe visited Florida two weeks ago and met with Billy Donovan and has said he may be back soon for Friday Night Lights in Gainesville. Florida needs to continue to get Sharpe on campus, as Georgia is recruiting Sharpe equally as hard as Florida is.
Tuscaloosa (Al.) County running back Bo Scarbrough
Scarbrough was in attendance this past weekend at the IMG 7 on 7 National Championship in Bradenton and made a stop into Gainesville on his way down. While the trip was with his 7 on 7 team, it was still a visit and one that the coaching staff has been waiting for. Scarbrough’s cousin and Florida commit Cyontai Lewis was with him and is recruiting Scarbrough hard to Florida. Scarbrough says he will be back to Florida for Friday Night Lights and if that happens, things will get interesting.
Homestead (Fla.) High receiver Ermon Lane
If anyone doubted Lane’s ability as a receiver, that was put to rest this past weekend in Bradenton as Lane was dominating all over the field. Lane also told GatorCountry.com that he will be attending Friday Night Lights in July in the Swamp. This visit is huge for Florida as Lane hasn’t been on campus since March. Lane also said that he knows of two official visits to both Florida and Alabama, the two schools are believed to be Lane’s top two.
West Palm Beach (Fla.) Cardinal Newman receiver Travis Rudolph
The need for playmakers at Florida is huge and Rudolph is one of the Gators top targets at receiver. Rudolph, much like Lane, showed off his skills in Bradenton and said he would be at Friday Night Lights in July like Lane. Rudolph went on a tour of schools and really likes Georgia and Auburn but still says he has a lot of interest in Florida. Rudolph guaranteed that Florida would make his list when he cuts it down later this summer.
St. Petersburg (Fla.) Lakewood Isaiah Wynn
With Joseph Paul’s commitment in question, the need for Wynn is very high. Wynn visited Florida this past week and really liked his visit with Will Muschamp and Tim Davis. Wynn says that he will be back for Friday Night Lights with his parents and wants his mom’s opinion of Florida. Wynn has said he might go out of state for college but backed off of the statement after visiting Florida. Wynn is very good friends with Gator defensive end Dante Fowler Jr.
Lewisville (Tx.) Hebron safety Jamal Adams
Adams visited Florida two weekends ago and feel in love with Florida. Adams had originally planned to make his decision at the Army All-American game in January but he has now pushed his decision up until August. This is good news for Florida because talks were that he was worried about Texas’ performances on the field. Most thought he wouldn’t choose Texas unless they had a good season.
Winter Park (Fla.) High defensive end Trent Harris
With Florida losing Christian Miller’s commitment and missing on Jacob Pugh, the need for Harris is big. Harris recently said that he will now make his commitment on August 1st and that Florida is his leader. Harris is expected to visit Florida for Friday Night Lights in July.
Gardena (Ca.) Junipero Serra cornerback Adoree Jackson
Jackson made news a few weeks ago by tweeting about Florida’s track and field championship. Jackson wants to run track and play football in college. There has been talk that Jackson will unofficially visit Florida this summer and those plans are looking more and more like they will happen. Jackson is a player that is very high on Florida’s board.
Hinesville (Ga.) Liberty County linebacker Raekwon McMillan
McMillan visited Florida for the second weekend in a row this past weekend but this time was with his parents. Florida is trying to battle back to get in the mix for McMillan and look to be doing just that with back to back visits to Gainesville. Ohio State and Alabama are still ahead of Florida but the more McMillan visits Florida, the better the Gator’s chances are.
Columbia (S.C.) Spring Valley linebacker Christian Miller
News broke a few months ago that Miller decommitted from Florida but that he still had plenty of interest in the Gators. Right now it’s setting up to be an Alabama-Florida battle for Miller and he plans to see both schools in July. The key to remember is that Miller is close to Brad Lawing. Florida would really like to add Miller back in the fold at the BUCK linebacker position.
