While the Florida-Tennessee match-up may not have as big of implications in the SEC as years past, the Gators are still looking to keep the hype alive as they host a plethora of top recruits in the Swamp this Saturday.
Here's the breakdown of who will be on campus:
This weekend the Gators expect to have many of their 2014 commitments on hand in the Swamp in order to make their own sale's pitch to the top uncommitted targets in attendance.
Commitments such as cornerbacks Duke Dawson and J.C. Jackson as well as Rivals100 quarterback Will Grier have actively recruited for Florida this cycle and should do so again this weekend.
Florida may also play host to Hinesville (Ga.) Liberty County five-star linebacker Raekwon McMillan on Saturday for an unofficial visit. This is the surprise visitor that ITG hinted at on Thursday afternoon, and was told that UF feels confident of him showing, but will be in wait and see mode if he makes the short trip down.
The Gator coaching staff has set this game as one to bring in many of their top targets for the 2015 class as well. As few names expected in the Swamp are defensive end CeCe Jefferson, running back Jacques Patrick, offensive tackle Jake Fruhmorgen, defensive end Michael Barnett, defensive end George Brown, and athlete Ray Ray McCloud III.
Check the Alley all weekend for the latest from the official and unofficial visitors.

The
Skinny: The Gators don't need a safety in 2014, but will not turn down a prospect like Adams if he wants on board. Many feel Adams will likely stay in the lone star state for school, but watch out for the Gators and the Rebels.

The
Skinny: Carter visited Gainesville this past summer and fell in love with the camps, as did his family. A source close to Carter told Inside the Gators it was Carter's parents that urged that the official visit to Florida be taken this weekend in order to meet with the staff again. Expect the Gators to roll out the red carpet and also try to convince Carter to make a return trip later on down the season.

The
Skinny: This will be Garrett's second trip to Gainesville, but will be the first time he actually isn't rushed. When he visited over the summer he was with his 7 on 7 team and didn't get to hang in the Swamp as much as he would have liked. If Florida plans on making a move for Garrett they will need to make this visit perfect.

The
Skinny: Goolsby visited UF this past summer and came away impressed. Florida is looking for a second tight end in 2014 and has Goolsby at the top of their list. At this time it looks as if the Gatos have some ground to make up with the other schools making up his top five.
