Florida Gators recruiting: November 30th official visitors preview

The Florida Gators will host the first of three big official visitor weekends before the early signing period starting this weekend.

This weekend looks to be the lighter of the three weekends but the Gators will still host four huge prospects for the 2019 class on campus.

Three of the four prospects scheduled to be in town this weekend are also guys committed to other schools so the Gators will put their best foot forward to flipping those guys.

GatorCountry brings you a Florida Gators recruiting visitors list preview here.


Miami commits visiting

Florida will host two of Miami’s offensive line commits this weekend on visits as the Gators are trying to flip both of them to boost their offensive line class.

Miami offensive line commit Michael Tarquin (6-5, 290, Citra, FL. North Marion) was Florida’s last three home games and admits to having built a great relationship with Florida as of late. Tarquin says that he will take the visit this weekend in hopes of getting around the players more and after the weekend he will decide on whether to stick with Miami or flip to Florida.

Miami offensive line commit Kingsley Eguakun (6-3, 280, Jacksonville, FL. Sandalwood) will join his friend Tarquin on campus this weekend. Florida just offered Eguakun on Tuesday but the lineman has had several family members graduate from Florida so that helps the Gators chances.


Virginia Tech commit visiting

Virginia Tech defensive end commit Brandon Dorlus (6-4, 265, Deerfield Beach, FL. High) picked up an offer from Florida this fall and visited Gainesville for a game late in the season. Dorlus admits that he has a lot of interest in the Gators but this official visit will be key for both sides.


Mississippi linebacker visiting

Dan Mullen has ties to several prospects in the state of Mississippi and he’s hoping this weekend that he use that relationship to gain momentum with an official visit.

Outside linebacker Derick Hall (6-4, 222, Gulfport, MS. High) is scheduled to visit Gainesville this weekend for the first time. Hall was visited by Florida earlier this week but right now Mississippi State seems to be the team to beat.
