Florida Gators recruiting visitor list for New Mexico State game

Football season is officially back , which means it’s time to release our Florida Gators recruiting visitor’s list for this week’s game against New Mexico State.

The south end zone of Ben Hill Griffin stadium won’t be as full as some weekends, but there are going to be some big name prospects in attendance that are currently on the Florida Gators recruiting board.

Helping to recruit some of those big names will be eight current commits, which includes 2017 quarterback Jake Allen, who has been a big recruiter for not only the 2017 class but also the 2016 class as well.

So here’s who’s expected to be in the Swamp on Saturday night.

 Commits invade the Swamp

Top recruiter for the 2016 class and leader for the Nick Washington Recruiter of the Year award early on is cornerback Chauncey Gardner and he’s expected to be in the Swamp on Saturday to help the Florida Gators recruiting efforts and also to watch the Jim McElwain era get underway.

Offensive linemen Brett Heggie and Stone Forsythe are also planning to head north to Gainesville and it will be their first visits to Gainesville since committing to Florida.

Running back Lamical Perine is a huge supporter of the Florida Gators and he will take in his first game in the Swamp as a Florida commit.

Athlete Tyrek Tisdale and receiver Rick Wells will get the chance to hang out with 2017 quarterback commit Jake Allen on Saturday as they look to see Florida’s new offense in action for the first time under offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier.

Athlete commit Jayvaughn Myers is also scheduled to visit Florida on Saturday.


Top 2016 targets expected in town

Miami Hurricanes receiver commit Sam Bruce and top receiver target Freddie Swain have both said they want to see the Florida Gators offense in action and they will be in attendance to watch that happen on Saturday.

Defensive end Jordan Woods is another uncommitted prospect from North Marion that’s scheduled to be in attendance on Saturday night. Miami and Florida are two teams in the mix for him.

Receiver Nate Craig-Myers is scheduled to visit Gainesville as the Gators continue to recruit the talented playmaker hard.

Talented 2017 prospects invading the Swamp

Tampa is loaded for 2017 and two of the prospects in that area are scheduled to be in the Swamp on Saturday and those players are defensive end Zachary Carter and running back Devan Barrett.

Clearwater running back Adarius Lemons and 2017 Ohio State athlete commit Bruce Judson are interested in watching the Florida Gators offense in person and that will happen on Saturday night.

Defensive end Jonathon MacCollister and receiver Rodney Scott will join those guys in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to see the Gators take on New Mexico State.
