Recruits give their take on Death Valley match-up

This Saturday afternoon the Florida Gators football team will invade Tiger Stadium to battle with the Louisiana State Tigers in front of a sold out Death Valley crowd.

While most of Florida’s top targets will not be in attendance, they’ll certainly be watching the game on television. Here’s their take on what they think:

2014 Homestead (FL) High receiver Ermon Lane:

“My weekend would be great if Florida wins.”

2014 St. Bonaventure (CA) High tight end Bryce Dixon:

“I saw Florida get in that and win the game. When I was with the players they were hype talking about what they were going to do and how emotional that could get.”

2015 Fort Lauderdale (FL) University School running back Jordan Scarlett:

“It will be a great game, they both have great defenses but whoever can score on the other defense will win.”

2015 Miami (FL) Central receiver DeVante Phillips:

“100 to zero Florida. Lol, no but I believe it will be a great game.”

2015 Lakeland (FL) Christian running back T.J. Simmons:

“It’s going to be a good ball game but Florida should come out with the win.”

2016 Baton Rouge (LA) University cornerback Tre Jackson:

“I have Florida pulling out a close tough victory against the Tigers.”

2015 Miami (FL) Westminster Christian tight end Devonaire Clairington:

“I don’t know man, the backup quarterback is doing great and Florida’s defensive line isn’t something to play with but then again LSU does get the passing done.”

2015 Citra (FL) North Marion running back James Allen:

“Florida wins.”

2014 Milledgeville (GA) Georgia Military School defensive end Davonte Lambert:

“It’s going to a good one.”

2014 Casper (WY) Natrona County defensive end Taven Bryan:

“The Gators will win. HAHA.”

2014 Gardena (CA) Juniper Serra linebacker Dwight Williams:

“21-14 Gators it will be hard fought and won in the fourth quarter.”

2014 Cross City (FL.) Dixie County cornerback Duke Dawson:

“It’s going to be a really good game.”

2014 Scooba (MS.) East Mississippi defensive line Jarran Reed:

“I think it’s going to be a good gridiron game that’s going to be physical.”
