FLORIDA FOOTBALL & RECRUITING COVERAGE
The Skinny: This weekend should help tell the tale for the Los Angels Area Player of the Year. He told Inside the Gators that he and his parents are leaving the west coast before six a.m. and will arrive in Gainesville a little after 2 p.m. Then next week he is visiting Oregon, which I would assume takes half the time to get to. He said those are the programs he is talking to and the only two visits he has set.
The Skinny: He is the second straight visitor on the list who is down to Florida and Oregon. However, unlike Boardingham, he told ITG that he doesn’t have an official visit set yet with the Ducks. He’ll be in town this weekend with his parents and little sister. It wouldn’t be surprising if he pulled the trigger for Florida.
The Skinny: Having already committed to Florida, the biggest question mark this weekend is whether or not his older brother Travis makes the short trip down from Jacksonville to join the family on the visit.
The Skinny: I haven’t spoken with him since the summer, so anything I share on him isn't coming directly from him. He has visited Kentucky and likes Auburn. Despite being committed, he hasn’t been included in our last couple of mock classes. If Rob Sale is to make an impact on a high school prospect during this cycle, it will likely have to be with Farmer.
The Skinny: Having already signed, his weekend will be mostly spent getting to know new linebacker coach Mike Peterson.
The Skinny: This Florida signee told ITG that a car service will drop off him and his family at UF around 3 p.m. Really, the only question surrounding him this weekend is whether or not he will find out who his future position coach is going to be.
The Skinny: On Thursday he released a final two of Florida and Tennessee. He visits the Gators this weekend and then the Volunteers in two weeks. You would think that with Kamari Wilson already on board that UF would wait to see where they stand with Jacoby Mathews before taking another safety.
The Skinny: After many missed opportunities, Florida is finally getting the five-star linebacker on campus. He is currently committed to Texas A&M and it will take something close to a miracle to flip him, but the staff was able to pull rabbits out of their hat in getting Wilson and James, so anything is possible.
The Skinny: The only visitor who I have never communicated with in any fashion (I’ve asked him to follow back or DM me several times), Sunday will be the first time I speak with him, and wouldn’t feel comfortable sharing an opinion on him until I do.
