Florida expecting full slate of top prospects for Junior Day


Many of Florida’s top targets in the 2019 class are expected to arrive in Gainesville today and Saturday for Junior Day, including a full slate of highly recruited in-state prospects, including tight end Keon Zipperer (Lakeland), running back/athlete Mark-Antony Richards (Wellington) and defensive end Derick Hunter (Fort Myers).

Florida also expects to host wide receiver Jeremiah Payton (Neptune Beach), who verbally committed last week to Miami but has the Gators among the top contenders to land his signature.

And, according to SEC Country’s Zach Abolverdi, Florida will attempt to get back in the mix for a pair of former UF commits in defensive back Tyrique Stevenson (Homestead) and safety/outside linebacker Marcus Tillman Jr. (Orlando).
