For the second consecutive weekend, Florida will have more than a half dozen big-name recruits on campus.
Coconut Creek Monarch teammates Shawn Burgess-Becker (6-o, 194) and Calvin Ridley (6-1, 189), both Rivals100 members, are visiting today. Alabama and Miami are currently considered the leaders for them.
Florida Atlantic running back commitment Jordan Scarlett (5-11, 205) also made the trip to UF today per 247Sports. He’s from Fort Lauderdale University School, the same high school as UF cornerback signee Quincy Wilson.
Seffner Armwood defensive end Byron Cowart (6-3, 257) and Glen St. Mary Baker County defensive end CeCe Jefferson (6-2, 244) are visiting together Saturday. The five-star prospects and close friends attended Florida’s basketball game against Kentucky on March 8 and appear to be favoring the Gators at this time.
A trio of top targets from the Tampa area — receivers Deon Cain (6-1, 190) and George Campbell (6-3, 183) and quarterback Dwayne Lawson (6-5, 210) — have plans to make it to Gainesville this weekend as well. UF hosted all three earlier this year and sit near or at the top of their leaderboards.
Florida receiver commit Tristan Payton (6-0, 182) of Jacksonville First Coast is also scheduled to visit Saturday.
