The Florida Gators will host their second junior day of the year on Saturday as Billy Napier and his staff turn their attention to the 2024 class and beyond.
Several visitors were on campus last weekend for junior day including several prospects that the Gators offered while on campus from the state of Florida.
This weekend the Gators will host double-digit prospects on campus including several prospects that will be on campus for the first time.
GatorCountry brings you a look at this weekend’s visitors list for the Gators’ second junior day which includes two of the Gators’ current commits
Tight ends coming to town
The Gators didn’t sign a tight end in the Class of 2023 after signing three in 2022 but the Gators will need at least one in the Class of 2024 and two of the Gators’ top targets will be on campus this weekend.
2024 Tight end Kylan Fox (6-4, 208, Loganville, GA. Grayson) will be on campus this weekend. Fox likes the Gators, but Alabama, Georgia, and Ohio State are all in the mix as well. This will be the first time on campus for Fox under Napier, but he has already built a good relationship with tight end coach William Peagler.
2024 tight end Caleb Odom (6-5, 205, Carrollton, GA. High) will be on campus for the first time this weekend. Odom also plays basketball and that’s something that intrigues Peagler and Napier as well. Odom’s recruitment is wide open and the Gators hope to make a move in his recruitment this weekend.
Top defensive targets to visit
Defensive lineman Malik Blocton (6-3, 268, Pike Road, AL. High) will make the trip from Alabama on Saturday after defensive line coach Sean Spencer visited him on Tuesday. Blocton likes Spencer and the Gators a lot but Auburn has made a big push for the defensive lineman this will be his first trip to Gainesville.
Outside linebacker/rush end Adarius Hayes (6-4, 210, Largo, FL. High) has been to Gainesville multiple times already and likes the Gators a lot. Hayes visited Notre Dame this past weekend and the Gators hope to regain the momentum this weekend. Hayes has been one of the Gators’ top targets for a while now.
Defensive back Travaris Banks (6-1, 190, Tuscaloosa, AL. Northridge) also plans to make the trip from Alabama this weekend. Banks is one of the top safeties in the country for 2024 and Alabama and Auburn are heavily involved here but the Gators hope to make a push this weekend when they get him on campus for the first time.
Two commits coming to town
The Gators will have two of their three commits on campus this weekend as those guys will help recruit the other top targets on campus.
Running back commit Chauncey Bowens and linebacker commit Myles Graham will both be on campus this weekend. Both prospects have been on campus multiple times already and Graham is one of the more vocal recruiters of the class with quarterback commit DJ Lagway who plans to be on campus next weekend.
Underclassmen to visit
The Gators will also host several 2025 prospects on campus this weekend and a 2026 prospect will also make the trip. The following guys plan to visit Gainesville this weekend.
2025 RB Anthony Rogers
2025 DL Gavin Nix
2026 DL Bryce Perry-Wright
2025 LB Tarvos Alford
