The Miami Hurricanes host the Florida Gators Saturday at Noon. Sun Life Stadium will be packed with fans of both sides for this in-state contest. Also packing the stands will be recruits. Miami has invited 115 recruits to attend, according to the Miami Herald.
That is a huge number, but it makes sense for a few reasons. First, Miami is located in perhaps the most talent-rich area in the country. Second, because of Miami's stadium situation (45 minute drive from campus), they sometimes encounter an environment in which it might not want to bring recruits. But, as noted above, that will not be an issue Saturday as the game is sold out.
Here are a few of the headliners.
A four-star receiver from out of state is expected, according to the Herald:
Raleigh (N.C.) Leesville Road wide receiver Braxton Berrios is using his second official visit to attend to Saturday's game. He visited Oregon last weekend, and has official visits planned to South Carolina and Tennessee. He plans to announce his college decision in October.
Travis Rudolph, a four-star receiver from West Palm Beach (Fla.) Cardinal Newman, will be in attendance. Benjamin holds offers from Miami, Florida and Florida State, as well as a host of other top schools.

Miami is also expecting three top defensive tackle recruits in Florida commit Khairi Clark, former Florida commit Anthony Moten. Both are from South Florida, and North Carolina's Arthur Williams.
Game against Pace Friday, then my Gators jumping in on the Canes Saturday🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊 ! I'm there like the fair !— Khairi Clark (@KhairiClark) September 2, 2013
Williams is a talented and raw player at 6'4 and 305 pounds. I saw him at a camp over the summer and came away impressed. I also think he could potentially play offensive tackle.
Williams' visit to Miami will be an official visit. In addition to picking a school, he has work to do in the classroom in order to get qualified.
