With Florida’s Junior Day set for Saturday, the Gators coaching staff is expected to host several highly recruited prospects on campus this weekend.
The Gators are expecting a pair of running backs today in Jashaun Corbin (Melbourne, Fl.) and Iverson Clement (Mount Holly, N.J.).
Corbin, a three-star prospect by 247Sports, received a scholarship offer from the Gators on March 9. Meanwhile, Clement will stop by UF before heading to IMG Academy for the Southeast 7v7 Qualifier Tournament.

Florida will host at least five prospects on Saturday, with the possibility of late additions.
Four-star athlete Amari Burney (St. Petersburg, Fl.) has a commitment date set for June 1st, and the Gators are expected to heavily factor into his decision.

Burney will be joined by fellow four-star prospects William Barnes and Malcolm Lamar on UF’s campus Saturday.
Barnes, an offensive tackle out of Apopka High, has been on UF’s radar for more than a year, and his stock has continued to rise following his performances in several Rivals’ Series Camps over the past several months. While Florida remains in front for Barnes, the rising 6-foot-4 prospect has picked up recent offers from Michigan and Oregon.
Lamar, a defensive end out of Armwood High (Seffner), is receiving significant interest from Florida and Alabama. Although his recruitment has been fairly quiet in 2017, the 6-foot-5 recruit attended the Crimson Tide’s Junior Day on Feb. 25.
Three-star athlete Leddie Brown out of Smyrna, Delaware, will be on campus on Saturday after picking up an offer from UF on Feb. 16. The No. 1 running back out of Delaware, Brown has already participated in Junior Day’s at West Virginia (Mar. 19) and Tennessee (Feb. 18).
Florida is also expecting to host three-star linebacker Caleb Johnson out of Northside High in Columbus, Georgia. The Gators appear to be the early leader for Johnson.
