Florida Gators recruiting prospects in All-American games

January is fast approaching, which means the All-American games for high school prospects are fast approaching and several prospects on the Florida Gators recruiting board will be in these games.

The first game is the Under Armour All-American game that will take place on January 2nd in Orlando, Florida and features four Florida Gators recruiting commits in the game, plus multiple targets.

Next up you have the Army All-American game that will take place in San Antonio, Texas on January 9th and that game features just one Gator commit, but several targets in the game.

Gator Country is going to break down whom you should be watching in these games so that you can get to know some of the future Florida Gators.

Receiver Josh Hammond, center Brett Heggie, defensive end Antonneous Clayton and cornerback Chauncey Gardner will represent the Florida Gators in Orlando starting next Monday.

Those four prospects will surely being doing some recruiting, as Clayton and Gardner are two of the Gators top recruiters in this class.

Receivers Tyrie Cleveland, Sam Bruce, Keith Gavin, Eli Stove, and Nate Craig Myers will all be in Orlando and will likely have to match-up against the big talker Gardner during the week.

Tight end Jacob Mathis will also be in Orlando and is considered one of the Gators top targets at tight end.

Maybe the biggest Florida Gators target at the Under Armour game will be Maryland quarterback commit Dwayne Haskins, who has become good friends with Chauncey Gardner and the two will have the chance to get to know each other even better next week.

Offensive linemen Landon Dickerson, Richard Merritt and Jauan Williams will also be in the game next week and they will try to block Gators defensive line targets Terrell Hall and Shavar Manuel during the week.

Linebackers Mack Wilson and Jeffrey McCulloch will team up team on White, while defensive backs Kristian Fulton and Jayvaughn Myers will be on Team Black and join Gardner in a talented defensive backfield.

The Army All-American game has Florida Gators recruiting commit Feleipe Franks in the game and he will have the Gators top receiver target Binjimen Victor to throw to in San Antonio, Texas.

An interesting battle will take place between two Florida Gators targets in the trenches between offensive lineman John Simpson and speed rusher Brian Burns in Texas.

While these are the guys you should watch for in the games, there is still the possibility that more targets or commits could be added to the games as they get closer.
