You can always tell which recruits are a school’s top priorities by who gets visited on the first day of a contact period.

Florida coaches spread out across the country Thursday to see their No. 1 targets face-to-face for the first time in more than a month.

UF checked in on a trio five-stars prospects in defensive end Lorenzo Carter (Norcross, Ga.), athlete Adoree’ Jackson (Gardena, Calif./Junipero Serra) and offensive tackle Damian Prince (Forestville, Md./Bishop McNamara).

Receiver Myles Autry, Carter’s teammate, also got a look from the Gators. After spending a week with Will Grier for the Army All-American Bowl, Autry tweeted he would love for him to be his quarterback in college.

That now could be a possibility, which would certainly help Florida’s chances with Carter.

Jackson hosted Florida coach Will Muschamp and Southern Cal coach Steve Sarkisian. The two-sport athlete has one more official visit remaining, and both UF and USC are vying for it. His recruitment appears to be a battle between the Gators and Trojans, so whoever gets that final trip likely lands him.

Florida was the first school to visit Prince on Thursday and will be the last to see him before signing day. With Mike Summers, his favorite offensive line coach, and Jalen Tabor, his best friend, both at UF, the Gators are in good position.

Here are some other 2014 prospects who were visited by the coaches:

WR Krenwick Sanders, 6-2, 190, Jesup, Ga./Wayne County (Wisconsin commit)
TE C’yontai Lewis, 6-6, 211, Alabaster, Ala./Kingston (Florida commit)
OL Andrew Mike, 6-7, 280, Tucson, Ariz./Sabino
DE Davon Godchaux, 6-4, 270, Plaquemine, La./Plaquemine (LSU commit)
DE Justus Reed, 6-3, 216, Clearwater, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic (Florida commit)
DE Gerald Willis III, 6-3, 275, New Orleans, La./Edna Karr (Florida commit)

The Gators also offered Miramar offensive tackle Yodny Cajuste, one of eight official visitors this weekend, and are going after Hialeah quarterback Alin Edohaurd.
