Big names visiting UF on Saturday

Florida’s first home game in a month is a much needed and awaited opportunity to host prospects on campus. Saturday is Homecoming, a great opportunity for prospects to get a feel for the campus and see the Gators face off with Vanderbilt at The Swamp.

The Gators will be hosting three on official visits:

Defensive end Da’Shawn Hand (6-4, 248, Woodbridge, VA), who will be accompanied by his father.

Receiver Speedy Noil (6-0, 161, New Orleans, LA Edna Karr)

Defensive end Gerald Willis (6-4, 247, New Orleans, LA Edna Karr), who will be accompanied by his father.

Saturday’s early start (12 noon) will mean the number of unofficial visitors is a bit low but the talent level is still quite high.

Here is the list of unofficial visitors that Gator Country expects to be in attendance:

Tight end Jordan Franks (6-4, 203, Crawfordville, FL Wakulla)

Cornerback Kendall Randolph (5-11, 175, Tallahassee, FL Lincoln)
