Visitor Preview: Surprise 5-star in the Swamp

WEEKEND INSIDER UPDATES & TIDBITS
Latest on five-star Ramsey
Expected Rivals100 visitor didn't make it
Instate five-star in the Swamp on Saturday
One visitor already on campus
In the past, if at all possible, Florida would avoid bringing official visitors in on a weekend such as this. A game with a noon start against a team that the Gators should run roughshod over. They would instead prefer that top kids come in against a better opponent when the atmosphere in the Swamp and surrounding the game would be expected to be much more electric (as will be the case when UF takes on LSU in two weeks).
With that being said, this is the bye week for two of the three official visitors, and the only time they can take an official visit during their football season.
Basically, it was now or never if Florida was to get a certain five-star on campus for an official visit weekend during the season to watch a game this year.
The three official visitors will be joined by a handful of commitments, a couple of remaining 2013 targets and quite a few 2014 and 2015 targets.
Florida commitments due in on Saturday include: Crescent City (Fla.) Rivals100 defensive tackle Caleb Brantley, Tampa (Fla.) Wharton five-star defensive back Vernon Hargreaves III, Daytona Beach (Fla.) Mainland four-star linebacker Quinton Powell, Rivals250 defensive end Jordan Sherit and Rivals250 safety Nick Washington.
Gator Commits Ahmad Fulwood, Joey Ivie and Adam Lane may make it in.
Two top remaining targets who are scheduled to be on hand are Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood Rivals100 defensive end Demarcus Walker and Guyton (Ga.) South Effingham three-star running back Joshua Mercer.

The
Skinny: Right now it appears to be a two horse race for
Gilmore with Florida sitting right behind LSU. However Gilmore will have
his mother with him on the visit, and she favors the Gators. With only a
handful of prospects on hand this weekend visiting officially, expect
Florida to roll out the red carpet for the Rivals250 member. It goes
without saying, UF's current commitments will be working him on Saturday.
He is scheduled his LSU official visit for November 3.

The
Skinny: Interestingly enough, for as highly sought after as
Ramsey is, he picked up his offer from Florida late in the process.
Despite being firmly committed to Southern Cal (his words), he has decided
to take a visit to Florida this week along with teammate and Florida
commit Max Staver. The Gators have actively been recruiting the Rivals100
member and hope to maybe sway his decision when they finally get him on
campus this weekend. The word is, he might be thinking about staying
closer to home, rather than take his game all the way out to the west
coast. USC is scheduled to get his final visit.

The
Skinny: While the signal caller will not be the only Florida
commit on campus this weekend, he will be the only one taking his official
visit. With the weekend off from high school football Staver will most
likely be busy trying to persuade his Rivals100 teammate Ramsey to join
him as part of the Gators Class of 2013. Other than that, there is no
drama involved for Staver or the quarterback position. He is solid in his
commitment to the Gators and UF isn't looking at any other quarterbacks in
this class.
