Well, now that Florida’s first Junior Day of the year is here, we can finally put the 2011 recruiting class to bed.
I think I just heard a collective sigh of relief from Gator Nation.
Junior Day is all about schmoozing and getting to show some of the top seniors-to-be a good time on campus. It’s like a mega unofficial visit. Florida’s coaches might not get a ton of personal time with certain prospects, but there will be as much communication as possible between the staff and the top guys on Florida’s board for 2012.
A lot of talent will be on hand this weekend, and with a huge basketball game Saturday (Florida hosts Tennessee and coach Bruce Pearl!) it should be quite the atmosphere for a lot of these kids.
This list could change, but here are some of the juniors who are expected to be in Gainesville Saturday.
