Half dozen recruits returning for ECU game


After hosting a solid group of prospects for the season opener, Florida will welcome back several of those same visitors Saturday for the East Carolina game.

Among the returning recruits are wide receiver Freddie Swain and defensive end Jordan Woods. UF is considered the front-runner for the four-star teammates from Citra North Marion.

Gators commits Chauncey Gardner, Stone Forsythe, Brett Heggie and Tyrek Tisdale will be back in Gainesville for the second straight weekend. Two more Florida pledges, JaQuan Bailey and Isaiah Johnson, are also attending.

Joining Gardner again on his trip to UF is his 2017 teammate Bruce Judson, a four-star athlete committed to Ohio State.

Louisville quarterback commit Tylin Oden and cornerback Carlos Becker round out the 2016 visitors.

A trio of four-star cornerbacks for 2017 will be on hand — Gentry Bonds, Ohio State commit Shaun Wade and Marco Wilson, younger brother of Gators CB Quincy Wilson.

Two 2017 Florida State commits, wide receiver D.J. Matthews and defensive tackle Ja’len Park, will check out the Gators as well.
