While there is no game to be played on the field on Saturday, it is still a pivotal weekend for Florida football as the Gators will play host to nine official visitors.




Jaquavion Fraziars‍ ‍ 

Wide Receiver
The Skinny:  There’s really not much to see here. Though he visited Penn State a few months back, Fraziars has been solid in his commitment to Florida.  

Fenley Graham‍ 

The Skinny: You may not believe it by the time you finish this update, but I have never been the homer type when it comes to prospect rankings. You know the type, those who believe that all UF commits are underrated. However, in the case of Graham, I actually do believe that. When I saw him in late August, he outperformed his teammate, four-star cornerback Kendall Dennis‍. With Graham being solid to Florida, his importance this weekend is being in the ear of his teammate listed below.

Donell Harris‍ 

Defensive End
The Skinny: Harris has been flirting with Florida for a while now, and finally made an unofficial trip to campus last month. The question here is will the Gators push for the Texas A&M commit with the big upside or the Florida State commit (Joseph), who might be more ready out of the gate? Miami is still also in play here and should get a visit before he signs. 

Morven Joseph‍ 

Defensive End
The Skinny:  The former Florida commit, who is currently pledged to Florida State is back on the board once again. What happens with Joseph could depend on whether or not the Seminoles new head coach retains Odell Haggins. As it stands today, you might like Florida and/or Tennessee’s chances better.

Tre’Vez Johnson 

The Skinny: I am as big a star gazer as anyone else in that on average, I believe the higher the prospect is rated, the better the chance he has of being a top player. There are always exceptions to that rule - and I believe Johnson may be one of them. Though he is the second lowest rated Florida pledge, he had a terrific senior season, performing well above his low three-star rating. When it comes to recruiting, he, like the other committed official visitors, is solid. 

Richie Leonard‍ 

Offensive Lineman
The Skinny: One of Florida’s most vocal and prominent prospect recruiters, look for Leonard to be all over the three uncommitted weekend official visitors.

Anthony Richardson‍ 

The Skinny: Like many of the commitments above, he is locked in with Florida. His main role this weekend should be to get in the ear of the visitor listed below him.

Arian Smith‍ 

Wide Receiver

The Skinny: As evidence of the up-and-down nature of recruiting, back in August Smith told Inside the Gators that regardless of what took place in the process, Florida had secured a spot in his final three. Then roughly two weeks ago he informed ITG that his final three consisted of Alabama, Clemson and Georgia. However, late last week he back tracked a bit and once again included Florida along with the Tide and Bulldogs. Florida visited him yesterday and set up his official visit for this weekend. The Gators have two advantages to utilize this weekend in that they will have his teammate Graham on campus as well as Richardson, who though he doesn’t have an overly ‘outgoing’ type of personality, he should at least make his presence somewhat felt. 

UPDATE: Smith unsure of Florida official visit or when he will sign

Derek Wingo‍ 

The Skinny:  Fresh off being named the Gatorade Player of the Year in the state of Florida, Wingo will take his long anticipated official visit to Florida. Because of his team’s run toward a state championship this is the weekend Florida was able to get him on campus, but  his impact as a weekend recruiter would have been better felt either last weekend or next weekend. Either way, with his outgoing personality type he should help the Gators’ efforts with the three uncommitted prospects this weekend.
