Florida’s coaches visited several prospects during the bye week

It might have been a bye week but for the Florida coaching staff this was another work weekend as they spent the time on the road recruiting for the future.

Will Muschamp didn’t allow his coaches to hit the road on Monday but by Thursday and Friday the Gators were well represented with five assistant coaches and the head man hard on the recruiting trail.

The NCAA allows coaches to visit each prospect once during the season but while on the prospect’s campus coaches are allowed only to say hello and not engage in a conversation.

Here is the list of prospects visited by the Florida staff last week and confirmed by Gator Country.
