Florida running backs coach Brian White was in Maryland Wednesday visiting with Damian Prince.

The five-star offensive tackle from Forestville (Md.) Bishop McNamara will take his final official to UF this weekend.

His recruitment is a battle between the Gators and the in-state Terps, who many feel have a slight edge heading into his first-ever trip to Gainesville.

Florida coach Will Muschamp, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin and secondary coach Travaris Robinson hit South Florida in hopes of solidifying one verbal commitment and stealing another.

All three were in West Palm Beach attending Wednesday night’s Cardinal Newman basketball game to watch Florida State receiver commit Travis Rudolph.

Receivers coach Joker Phillips was at his game last week. Muschamp then had an in-home visit with Rudolph and gave his final attempt to sway him from FSU.

Based on what Rudolph has been saying lately, it doesn’t look like that will happen. Whether those comments are truthful or not remains to be seen on signing day.

Durkin and Robinson had an in-home visit with Immokalee athlete J.C. Jackson. Florida’s efforts to keep Jackson from visiting FSU were seemingly a success, as he currently has no plans to go anywhere this weekend.

However, Miami coach Al Golden is scheduled to go in-home with him Saturday. Jackson has visited UM numerous times since committing to UF, including last weekend for Miami’s basketball game.

It now appears his final decision will come down to the Gators and the Hurricanes.

Florida also went to see Hollywood Chaminade-Madonna defensive tackle Khairi Clark, who has no questions surrounding his UF commitment.
