Gator Country Road Trip: Week Two

Things didn’t go as we may have hoped down in Miami but after returning to Gainesville, Gator Country didn’t hesitate to bring you the second 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.

With the season just beginning, week two was slightly less traveled than normal.

First up for Gator Country was a trip to Fayetteville, where Arkansas took on Samford and hosted close to 50 prospects.

None of Florida’s targets where in Arkansas but the headliner was North Little Rock running back Juan Day and tight end Will Gragg.

Next up for the Gator Country road trip was a trip to Auburn, Alabama where the Tigers defeated Arkansas State on Saturday and hosted several top prospects.

The headliner of the group was 2015 defensive tackle Trent Thompson. Also on hand was Alabama linebacker commit Shaun Hamilton, Auburn linebacker commit Tre’ Williams and Ole Miss commit Jamieyus Pittman.

Our next stop on the road trip took us into enemy territory in Athens, Georgia, where the Dawgs defeated South Carolina in front of a sold out crowd and hosted several top notch prospects.

Four prospects were on official visits, those were Sony Michel, Detric Duke, Kendall Gant and Juwann Winfree.

Lorenzo Carter and David Sharpe were also in Athens for unofficial visits this past weekend.

Kentucky hosted Miami of Ohio on Saturday in Lexington. Unfortunately for the Wildcats, no major prospects were in attendance for the noon kickoff.

Next up was a trip to the bayou in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, as LSU defeated UAB on Saturday night in front of several prospects.

Florida defensive end target Davon Godchaux was in attendance along with several LSU commits.

Tennessee hosted several top prospects on Rocky Top as the Volunteers took down Western Kentucky.

One prospect in attendance was Florida target Cory Thomas, also on hand was Charles Mosley, a top target for UT.

Mississippi State hosted Alcorn State on Saturday but no major prospects were in attendance.

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