The Swamp will be buzzing with top high school prospects as Florida football holds its annual Friday Night Lights camp/recruiting event.

Many four- and five-star players are expected to be on the field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. 

The big in-state targets attending from the 2023 class include five-star Cormani McClain from Lakeland, five-star edge rusher Samuel M'Pemba from IMG Academy in Bradenton, four-star receiver Andy Jean from Miami, four-star defensive lineman Kamran James from Orlando, and four-star receiver Daquayvious Sorey from Chipley.

The Gators should also see some 2023 commitments, such as four-star edge rusher Isaiah Nixon (St. Petersburg), four-star cornerback Sharif Denson (Bartram Trail, St. Johns), and two four-stars from Buchholz Gavin Hill and Creed Whittemore (Buchholz).

A couple big-name quarterback prospects for 2024 are expected: Davi Belfort of Gulliver Prep in Miami, who has offers from Alabama and Arkansas, and borderline four/five-star quarterback DJ Lagway from Willis, Texas. Two Class of 2025 quarterbacks from Jacksonville should also be there — Mandarin's Tramell Jones Jr. and Trinity Christian's Colin Hurley.
