Florida takes on the Tennessee Volunteers Saturday in the Swamp. The Gators are favored by 17 and the atmosphere should be good for several top recruits. Let's take a look at some of the expected visitors.
Florida will look to get a foot in the door with a pair of Louisiana prospects from New Orleans' Edna Karr High School in receiver Speedy Noil, a five-star, and defensive end Gerald Willis, also a five-star. The pair visited Texas A&M last weekend for the Alabama game. Most believe LSU is a heavy favorite to land the duo, but Florida will have its chance to make its mark.
But Willis won't be the only five-star defensive end in town. The Gators also welcome Lorenzo Carter, a five-star from Norcross (Ga.) High School. Carter has Florida in his top group and visited Georgia recently for the South Carolina game.
And five-stars aren't limited to the defensive line and receiver positions. Five-star linebacker Clifton Garrett, from Plainfield (Il) South High School, will be officially visiting Florida Saturday. He'll be joined by five-star safety Jamal Adams of Carrollton (Texas) Hebron High School. LSU is a heavy favorite for Garrett, and Florida has a strong chance to land Adams.
Florida is also expecting a visit from Derby (Kansas) tight end Deandre Goolsby. Goolsby is a three-star recruit and a solid player. Many believe he is leaning to Arkansas.
Alabama commitment Bo Scarbrough, who recently transferred to the Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy, will also check out The Swamp Saturday. Scarbrough was rumored to have decommitted, but his seven-on-seven coach, Byron De'Vinner, cleared up the matter.

Javon Harrison, an athlete committed to Virginia Tech out of Lakeland (Fla.) Kathleen, should also make the trip. Harrison is a four-star capable of playing receiver, safety or corner.
