Recruits will flood Florida’s campus over the next month to catch spring football practices, and the Gators set things in motion this weekend.
UF is scheduled to host more than a dozen recruits Saturday, including six Rivals250 members.
Two of those are Rivals100 cornerbacks Chauncey Gardner and Trayvon Mullen. Gardner is a former Florida commitment still high on the Gators, while Mullen currently has LSU leading.
Four-star running Elijah Holyfield, the son of former heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield, is making the trip to Gainesville, as will offensive athletes Korey Charles and Tyrek Tisdale.
UF receiver commit Rick Wells is visiting along with in-state wideouts Isaiah Johnson (Miami pledge), Binjimen Victor, Freddie Swain and C.J. Riley, who has yet to be offered by Florida. Tight end Christian Roberson out of Georgia will also visit.
Darius Whitfield, a consensus top-200 defensive end from Alabama, plans to be on hand as well as defensive end JaQuan Bailey and offensive guard Solomon Kindley, high school teammates of Wells at Jacksonville Raines.
Bailey, Kindley, linebacker Jonathan Jones and offensive guard Jawaan Taylor are all looking for UF offers Saturday.
