Florida is gearing up for its first recruiting weekend under new coach Dan Mullen.
The Gators are expected to host several official visitors on campus this weekend, including a new potential target.
Trey Dean, a 4-star safety from Hampton, Ga., plans to take a trip to Florida. Dean was strongly considering the Gators early in his recruitment, but the departure of former defensive backs coach Torrian Gray hurt their chances.
The Under Armour All-American committed to Tennessee on Aug. 2, but the coaching situation with the Vols could open the door for Florida. Alabama is also in the mix for Dean, who officially visited the Crimson Tide this past weekend.
The Gators will host 4-star DB pledges Amari Burney and Randy Russell as well. Burney committed to UF as an athlete and could play safety, nickel, linebacker or possibly some offense in college. Russell will compete for playing time at safety next season.
Burney and Russell are both early enrollees and plan to sign with the Gators later this month. Mullen conducted in-home visits with Burney and Russell last week.
