Florida has hosted some of its top targets on campus in recent days.

The most important visitor was Plantation American Heritage’s Torrance Gibson, who is the No. 1 priority for UF at quarterback in this recruiting cycle. His trip Friday was the last of a week-long college tour that also included stops at Auburn, Clemson, LSU, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

With the additions of Will Grier and Treon Harris in the last class, the Gators will have a hard time signing the consensus top-50 overall prospect. Moreover, Florida wasn’t one of the schools that stood out to him the most during his spring break visits.

UF, however, did impress Georgia linebackers Roquan Smith (Montezuma Macon County) and Adonis Thomas (Lawrenceville Central Gwinnett) on Saturday.

It was the second trip to Gainesville for both this year, and Thomas reportedly named Florida his leader afterward. That could mean good news for the Gators as he and Smith, a Rivals100 member, would like to play together in college.

UF hosted two more prospects Saturday — offensive lineman Abdul Bello (Montverde Academy) and defensive end Isaiah Washington (New Orleans, La./Edna Karr).

It was Bello’s third trip to Florida in four months, and he appears to be leaning toward the Gators at this time. Washington, an LSU commit who was offered by UF on March 10, is from the same high school as defensive end signee Gerald Willis III.

Another lineman, Bradenton IMG Academy offensive tackle Tyree St. Louis, visited Sunday. The Orlando Rivals Camp OL MVP told The Sun the Gators are one of his favorites.

Lastly, Gibsonton East Bay defensive end Marques Ford made a trip to Florida today. He’s an unrated prospect on Rivals but holds offers from Miami, UCF and USF, among others.

Below are some tweets by Gibson and Thomas from their visits.
