The South Florida Express rolls through Gainesville this week.
Five members of the 7-on-7 team arrive at UF today and will stay overnight to check out Florida’s practice on Friday morning.
The carload of talent includes Homestead receivers Ermon Lane and Tyre Brady (South Dade), Plantation cornerback Chris Lammons, Fort Lauderdale University School defensive back Quincy Wilson and his teammate, linebacker Richard Yeargin III.
Miami Central running back Dalvin Cook is also planning to visit UF on Thursday. Cook is currently committed to Clemson, but the Gators are recruiting him relentlessly and have a legit shot at a flip in the future.
As for the South Florida Express, four of the five visitors have offers from top BCS programs. None of them will get more attention from the UF coaching staff than Lane, who is one of the best receivers in the nation. The 6-foot-2, 172-pounder has a Top 5 of Alabama, Florida, LSU, Miami and Georgia.
Wilson is a Rivals250 member who could play either corner or safety at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds. He was named defensive skills player MVP at the Rivals Camp in Miami last weekend. His leaderboard consists of UF, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State and South Carolina.
Yeargin is being recruited for Florida’s Buck position and won linebacker MVP honors at the Nike Football Training Camp in Miami on March 17. The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder is wide open right now and plans on making a late decision, but the Gators are one of his early standouts along with Arkansas, Clemson, Florida State, Ole Miss, Tennessee and UCLA.
Lammons has no leaders at this time, but his recruitment is believed to be a battle between Florida’s Big Three. Alabama and South Carolina are also in the mix for the 5-foot-10, 170-pounder, who like Yeargin was a standout at the Miami NFTC.
Brady is receiving interest from some of the aforementioned schools, but he has yet to be offered. With his 6-foot-3, 180-pound frame and recent performances on the combine circuit, that could change soon.
Homestead’s Maurice Alexander, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound athlete from the 2015 class, is also visiting with the group.
