Visitor list for January 24th

Only two weekends remain for colleges around the country to host official visits on campus before National Signing Day on February 5th. Last weekend Florida hosted nine official visitors but this weekend the Gators are only expecting three official visitors on campus.

Florida cornerback commit Quincy Wilson, who has been rock solid to the Gators since committing in July, takes his official visit this weekend and the coaches will be expecting him to a bit of recruiting of his own while on campus. Wilson will be trying to help turn receiver C.J Worton, a Florida State commitment who is not solid to the Seminoles. There is a Florida connection as Worton’s older brother is a former walk-on at Florida.

The other official visitor this weekend is offensive lineman Andrew Mike who is coming off of a great visit to Arkansas. Mike has said that a good visit to Gainesville could lead him to being a Gator soon.

Two other prospects have talked about visiting Florida this weekend, but their high school coach doesn’t expect them to make it to Gainesville. Florida is holding out hope that Wayne County (GA) receiver Krenwick Sanders and defensive tackle Jeremy Patterson, both Wisconsin commitments, will make the trip to Gainesville from  Jesup, Georgia.

Even with three official visitors in Gainesville, the Florida coaching staff expects quite a few 2015 prospects in town for the first of what should be a few junior days. Right now only a few prospects have told Gator Country that they are visiting Florida. Trinity Christian prospects Jeffrey Holland, Deontai Williams and Victor Alexander have all said they may be a part of the junior day but weren’t 100% sure as of Thursday night.
