Fresh off signing a top-five recruiting class in the 2012 cycle, the Florida Gators are right back at it. This weekend, Florida will host its junior day, during which top prospects will flock to Gainesville to see what the Gators offer, both athletically and academically. And, if the weather cooperates, the recruits will get to experience the campus during a particularly nice time of year.
So who are the top recruits coming to visit Gainesville this weekend?
It all starts with offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil. The 6'5", 290 pound giant out of Lake City (Fla.) Columbia grew up a fan of the Gators, and already holds more than 20 scholarship offers from the likes of Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, LSU, etc. It would probably be easier to list the top schools that didn't offer Tunsil. A commitment from Tunsil is not completely out of the question, but probably unlikely at this point, given that Tunsil has yet to meet new Florida offensive line coach Tim Davis in person.
A trio of players from Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln will make the trip. James Hearns is already a commitment to Florida, and he'll be joined by teammates Taj Williams and Reggie Davis, both receivers in the four-star mold. Jaquez Green, a former Gator great, is the offensive coordinator at Lincoln. It's possible that Williams and Davis will join their four-star teammate and commit to UF this weekend.
Kelvin Taylor, son of Gator great Fred Taylor, is also expected to make the trip. Taylor is expected to choose between Alabama and Florida later in the weekend.
Also in attendance will be defensive back Nick Washington, of Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian. Washington is liked as a safety by some scouts, and a corner by others. His ultimate position depends on the defensive system run by the school to which he commits, but there's no argument about his talent level.
One recruit who, contrary to other reports, will not be making the trip is receiver Ahmad Fulwood. Fulwood will attend Alabama's junior day.
