FLORIDA FOOTBALL & RECRUITING COVERAGE
The Skinny: The Central Michigan commit is due in with his parents, brother, and sister. Florida has yet to offer, but he told Inside the Gators that both Billy Napier and quarterback analyst Ryan O’Hara have been in constant contact. In most cases, the low ranking may be a bit bothersome, but Jim McElwain has shown the ability – think Kyle Trask – to find diamonds in the rough at quarterback.
The Skinny: Another weekend visitor who has yet to be offered, but we were told this week he almost certainly will be, and when that happens expect him to commit on the spot. At one time he was committed to Napier while he was at Louisana-Lafayette.
The Skinny: He has already signed with Florida, but this will be his first trip to campus without Christian Robinson being part of the staff. The fact that the Gators have retained recruiting assistant Chase Clark certainly helps in his transition to the new staff. If there are any bumps in the road, Robinson currently being at Auburn might prove to be a temptation.
The Skinny: As I am writing this, Jenkins is currently in Atlanta about to board a plane for Gainesville along with his mom and dad. He has West Virginia and Tennessee as his other top choices at the moment. We’ll see if the Gators offer over the weekend.
The Skinny: By far and away the hardest of Florida's commits to get a hold of, Livingston doesn't make it a point to announce his intentions. The good news is, there’s no intrigue here as he has already signed with the Gators.
The Skinny: My mind tells me that he is going to be hard to pull away from LSU – where he will officially visit next weekend – and even Texas A&M remains a threat. A weekend with Corey Raymond should bolster Florida’s chances, and then we’ll have to wait it out.
The Skinny: Another player where there’s no real storyline to follow since he has already signed with Florida. He told ITG he will be visiting with his parents and is expected to arrive around 1 p.m.
