GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida coach Dan Mullen and his staff will have another big recruiting weekend for the spring game.
The Gators are expected to host multiple top targets on Saturday, including 5-star athlete Quavaris Crouch (Charlotte, N.C.) and 5-star cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. (Baton Rouge, La.). Crouch is ranked No. 17 nationally in the 247Sports composite and could play running back or outside linebacker in college.
Two more top-100 overall recruits will be in attendance Saturday: 4-star wide receiver Mycah Pittman (Calabasas, Calif.) and 4-star WR/RB Mark-Antony Richards (West Palm Beach, Fla.). Pittman already visited Florida once this spring and raved about his trip.
Stingley, the nation’s No. 20 overall recruit, is one of several elite defensive backs visiting this weekend. Florida will also host 4-star cornerbacks Chester Kimbrough (New Orleans) and DJ Turner II (Suwanee, Ga.) and 4-star safeties Nick Cross (Hyattsville, Md.), Brendan Gant (Lakeland, Fla.), Cortez Andrews (Tallahassee, Fla.) and Tyler Scott (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.).
Cross, the nation’s No. 10 safety, is one of two official visitors this weekend. The other will be former West Virginia defensive lineman Adam Shuler, a Longwood, Fla., native who left the Mountaineers football program in February.
Florida is welcoming linemen on both sides of the ball: 4-star guard Keiondre Jones (Hogansville, Ga.), 4-star defensive end Derick Hunter (Fort Myers, Fla.) and 3-star defensive tackles Patrick Lucas (Wetumpka, Ala.) and Lloyd Murray Jr. (Wichita Falls, Texas), an Ole Miss commit.
Other targets include 4-star running back Derrian Brown (Buford, Ga.), 3-star tight end Tyler Fromm (Warner Robins, Ga.) and 3-star linebacker Marcus Tillman Jr. (Orlando, Fla.), a former Gators pledge.
The Florida commits visiting are wide receiver Dionte Marks (Deland, Fla.), tackle Ethan White (Clearwater, Fla.), linebacker Jammal Abrams (Birmingham, Ala.), safety Trent Whittemore (Gainesville, Fla.), 2020 athlete Keyvone Lee (Clearwater (Fla.) and 2020 defensive end Josh Griffis (Bradenton, Fla.).
