Several big high school games on tap this weekend

The four-letter network will have a handful of Florida commits televised this weekend.

The first prospect Gator fans can tune in to will be 2015 five-star offensive tackle Martez Ivey, who is ranked sixth overall in the ESPN Junior 300 and appears to be favoring UF early on. His Apopka team takes on Duncan (S.C.) Byrnes at noon ET on ESPN.

Then at 7 p.m., ESPN will air Miami Booker T. Washington vs. Norcross (Ga.), which features five-star defensive end Lorenzo Carter. He is likely the No. 1 target on Florida’s board for 2014 and currently has the Gators in the lead.

Last but certainly not least, Homestead and Fort Lauderdale University School face off at 11 a.m. on ESPNU. This game will matchup Homestead receiver Ermon Lane against his close friend and fellow UF pledge, cornerback Quincy Wilson.

Running back Jordan Scarlett, Wilson’s teammate from the class of 2015, is another recruit to keep an eye on. He has a Top 4 of Florida State, Miami, Florida and Central Florida.

And if you really want to see some future Gators, you can go to at 7 p.m. on Saturday and watch Miami Central teammates Dalvin Cook (2014 RB) and Da’Vante Phillips (2015 WR). The UF commits will play Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer and 2014 receiver Johnnie Dixon.


  1. Where’s the guy that gave me crap about George Campbell when I said his hands were terrible. I watched his whole game and he dropped 4 passes and fumbled twice. Like I said, he needs to work on his catching, big time. Of course I’d still take him off of potential, but Phillips is a better receiver right now

  2. Watched Lorenzo Carter play vs. Booker T tonight and the LT for Booker totally dominated Carter. Not impressed unless he gains about 35 lbs and can do more than speed rush….as SEC OL will eat him up otherwise. Showed very little pass rush technique other than just trying to speed by the OT….who was just to strong and powerful for him. On one play, the OT shoved Carter 10 yards back and planting him into the ground. ANd…Booker T. just totally crushed Norcross and Carter.

  3. Tampa Gator, yours is the same criticism of Carter that was made at The Opening. He has to improve and stop relying on his speed rush…without strength/power at the point of attack and an occasional bull-rush to setup the speed rush, he’s one dimensional. Hope they coach him up. That OT ‘worked ‘im’ tonight. Go Gators!

  4. Cook took a punt back for a TD tonight. Think that is 2 TD for Cook tonight. Grier has 6 passing one rushing. Carter was struggling tonight with one on ones and double teams but will improve after he sees the tape with coaches.

  5. LT, most would say Jordan Ingraham is too short (I think he is listed @ 6’1” and 315lbs). Carter projects very well but was one dimensional so I would want to see Ingraham against DE talents with a variety of moves and strength before I’d endorsed him. I am not big on size (specifically height) at the college level, although I do acknowledge size IS a talent…but if a kid shows he’s got the heart and can play with anybody he’s my kind of player. Unfortunately when it comes to guys who don’t stand out physically and are not household names, many will evaluate why we should NOT sign him as opposed to contrary. His national performance definitely put him on the map though. Go Gators!
