Florida Gators spring scrimmage visitors list preview

The Florida Gators will finish off their third week of spring practice on Saturday when they hold their first scrimmage of the spring.

Several of the Gators’ top targets are scheduled to be in town on Saturday to watch the Gators go through that scrimmage.

Many of those targets are scheduled to arrive in town on Friday and stay multiple days to get more time around the coaching staff.

GatorCountry brings you a visitors list preview for this weekend.


Friday visitors

Several of the Florida Gators visitors are scheduled to arrive in town on Friday and stay through Saturday.

Receiver Koby Howard will arrive in town on Friday and will shadow receiver TJ Abrams around for the day. Howard will have the chance to go to class and workouts with Abrams before meeting with the coaching staff.

Offensive line commit Peyton Joseph has been in town since Thursday, and he will stay through Saturday to watch the scrimmage.

Offensive lineman John Mills will make the long trip from California on Friday for his second visit to town. Mills will also return to town for an official visit this summer.

Auburn defensive line commit Malik Autry arrived in town on Thursday, and he will stay through Saturday. Autry has been a frequent visitor to Gainesville, and he has set an official visit to Florida already.

Defensive lineman Myron Charles will also be in town on Friday as the Gators are battling both Florida State and Miami for the Port Charlotte target.

2026 quarterback Brady Smigiel will be in town on Friday as he makes the long trip from California on Friday. Smigiel picked up an offer from the Gators a few weeks ago and will now get to meet everyone.


Saturday visitors

One of the biggest names expected on campus on Saturday will be USC defensive end commit Isaiah Gibson who just recently committed to the Trojans. Gibson is teammates with Florida commit Peyton Joseph and had an interest in the Gators before making the commitment. Florida will continue to recruit Gibson hard.

Another huge target for the Gators is offensive lineman Micah DeBose who has the Gators in his top group and will make his first visit to Gainesville. DeBose is from Mobile, Alabama, and is one of the best linemen in the country.

Offensive lineman Juan Gaston will make the drive down from Atlanta on Saturday to see the Gators scrimmage. Georgia and South Carolina are considered the favorites for Gaston right now but the Gators hope to get an official visit set this weekend.

Offensive lineman Austin Pay will make the long trip from Utah on Saturday as he gets his first look at the Gators program. Pay has an offer from Florida already.

The following underclassmen are expected in town this weekend as well.
