Florida coaches have hit the road as we are at the beginning of a two week contact period. I have sent out over 100 messages to prospects, and I'll post what is going on in this thread as they respond.

Running back target Jalen White out of Alabama visited Florida a couple of weeks ago, but the Gators haven't offered. He said that UF running back coach Greg Knox is set to visit him at 2:00 this afternoon at school.

Defensive tackle/Offensive guard Jayson Jones said that he is unsure of any coaching visits this week.

Brian Johnson has already been by the school to check in on commit Issiah Walker and according to Walker, a couple of other Florida coaches will see him later on. (UPDATE: Walker said John Hevesy is coming later)

Dan Mullen and Hevesy are both scheduled to check in on offensive line commit Gerald Mincey on Tuesday.

Commit Trevon Johnson said that he will have an in-home Monday night with Florida.

As an example of why we all love recruiting. Speedster Arian Smith told me back in August that Florida was a definite in his final three. About 10 days ago he told me his three were Alabama, Clemson and Georgia. Today he told me that Larry Scott is scheduled to see him later this week and Dan Mullen may join him.

He possesses the kind of speed Florida is missing on offense.

Christian Robinson and Ron English will visit with commit Rashad Torrence II on Thursday and then Dan Mullen will go in-home next Tuesday.

Avantae Williams said that he is currently unsure of any coaches stopping by this week.

I have been told that UF will see Gervon Dexter on Wednesday and that Georgia is trying to set something up for Thursday before he officially visits Florida this coming weekend. I DM'ed Dexter for the latest, but he has yet to reply.

Do we have a realistic shot at Darnell Washington? I haven't heard his name mentioned in a few weeks.

South Carolina was in to see Jaheim Bell today and Florida State is due in. According to his mother, Florida hasn't said if they are visiting and an official visit to Florida hasn't been set up as of yet.

He is hard to get anything from. Immediately after his Florida official, I would say UF was realistically in there. I wouldn't venture a guess though right now.

We gave up on Bell or is the interest gone on his part?

If UF doesn't go see him, that would be an indication that they aren't as interested. If they go, they are still in it. His mother said the weekend trip to Gainesville went well.

A quartet of Florida coaches visited linebacker commit Derek Wingo today at school. It was Dan Mullen, John Hevesy, Billy Gonzales and Christian Robinson. That is Gonzales' area school, so I can see why he was there (doesn't mean he was trying to see receivers), but Hevesy being there is interesting - considering what we were told about Marcus Dumervil in our last Insider Recruiting Notes

He will take his UF official visit this weekend and then Todd Grantham is scheduled to visit with him again next week.

About the same as GT unless he's dead set on staying home or sharing time with all the 5*s at UGA
