Road Trip week 5

Gator Country Road Trip takes a  look at which prospects visited the campuses of SEC schools and those of some of Florida’s biggest rivals the past week.

The week five college football schedule brought a lot of good games around the SEC and the country,  which meant the good prospects were taking some visits.

First up for a trip to Tuscaloosa where Alabama defeated Ole Miss on Saturday night with a crowd that included Homewood offensive lineman and Florida target Jordan Sims, Hoover cornerback Marlon Humphrey and several of Alabama’s current commits.

A trip to Fayetteville, Arkansas where the Razorbacks fell to Texas A&M on Saturday night saw Plantation tight end Ravian Pierce on an official visit. Texas commit Kevin Shorter was also in attendance.

In Athens, where Georgia took down LSU in a nail bitter were many of Florida’s top targets including receiver Josh Malone and linebacker Raekwon McMillan on officials and David Sharpe and Lorenzo Carter  on unofficial visits.

When the Florida Gators took on Kentucky in Lexington Saturday night, JUCO receiver Roger Lewis was the main target in attendance.

The last stop on this week’s tour is Knoxville where Tennessee narrowly escaped an upset bid by the upstart South Alabama Jaguars, in their first year as a full-fledged Division I school. Florida target Cory Thomas was in attendance as was Charles Mosley, who is one of Tennessee’s top targets this year.

Stay tuned next week to see where the Gator Country tour bus stops.
