Gator Country Road Trip: Week Three

Gator Country took the bye week to bring you the third Road Trip of the season. We hope you join us as we take a look at which prospects visited the campuses of some of Florida’s biggest rivals and SEC foes during the past week.

We aim to allow Florida fans the opportunity to see how many prospects are visiting other campuses as well as where some of Florida’s top targets are spending their weekends.

Fans across the country saw a ton of prospects show up on their favorite campuses over the weekend.

First up for GC was a trip to Fayetteville, where Arkansas took on Southern Miss and hosted close to 50 prospects.

Dwyer’s Johnnie Dixon was on an official visit to Arkansas this past weekend and headlined the visitors on campus. Dixon was the only Florida prospect in Fayetteville.

Next up for the Gator Country road trip wass a trip to Auburn, Alabama. Auburn defeated Mississippi State on Saturday and hosted several top prospects.

The headliner of the group was Norcross defensive end Lorenzo Carter, also on hand was Ronnie Clark, Tre Williams and Alabama commitment Stephen Roberts.

Our road trip took us next to Lexington, Kentucky, where the Wildcats lost to Charlie Strong and the Louisville Cardinals.

No major prospects were in attendance at the Kentucky game.

Next up is a stop in Tiger Country as LSU downed visiting Kent State in front of a few prospects.

2015 defensive tackle Daylon Mack was the biggest name on hand along with several of LSU’s commitments.

South Carolina hosted Vanderbilt on Saturday in Columbia and only a handful of visitors were there.

Braxton Berrios and 2015 defensive end Michael Barnett headlined the small group of visitors.

We ended our road trip this week in Aggie land, as the Crimson Tide of Alabama defeated Texas A&M in front of a sold out crowd.

The list of prospects on hand was incredible, but the headliners were Jamal Adams, Leonard Fournette, Gerald Willis, Speedy Noil and Davon Godchaux.

Stay tuned next week to see where the Gator Country tour bus stops.
