Huge recruiting weekend


This is it folks. The weekend you’ve all been waiting for. Forget the new Nike jerseys. Forget Tim Tebow’s and Brandon Spikes’ farewell. That’s all boring compared to the amount of talent that will be in the south end zone stands Saturday afternoon for Florida’s annual game with rival Florida State.

With it being Thanksgiving week, I decided to get a list up early for you guys. I’ve been working the phones and asking the recruiting bigwigs of the world for the last week and weekend to see who will be in town. It’s still the beginning of the week, so things could change by Friday and Saturday, but here’s an early look.
