LIST: Plenty of talented recruits in Gainesville today

GAINESVILLE -- Anyone online this Saturday morning? If so, here are a few UF-related links for y'all (or you guys, depending on where you're from.) Plus some other fun stuff.

FIRST THINGS FIRST
Here's my official prediction. I've crunched the numbers, studied the trends, consulted the mystics and drank a cup of coffee to come up with this: UF 36, LSU 28.

THE RECRUITS, ACCORDING TO RIVALS.COM
Four high school recruits are in Gainesville this weekend for their official visits, according to Rivals. Florida already has 11 commitments, so spots are filling up fast. Here's the list of recruits attending today's game on official NCAA visits:

DE NICK KASA (6-7, 245 pounds) Broomfield (Colo.) Legacy High
Kasa is a four-star recruit, according to Rivals, and nation's fifth-ranked strong-side defensive end. In the mold of Matt Patchan. Florida already has one commitment from a defensive end and are pursuing several other pass rushers.
OL KYLE KOEHNE (6-6, 290 pounds) Indianapolis Cathedral
Another Steve Addazio special. Koehne is a three-star recruit, according to Rivals, and the nation's 34th-ranked offensive guard.
CB BRANDEN SMITH (5-11, 171 pounds) Atlanta Washington
A battleground recruit, Smith is the No.3-ranked cornerback in the nation, according to Rivals, and a four-star recruit. He is also interested in Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia and Tennessee.
ATH MARSALIS TEAGUE (5-10, 170 pounds) Paris (Tn.) Henry Co.
The No.49-ranked athlete in the nation, according to Rivals, and a three-star recruit. Also considering Miami and Vanderbilt.

Nice post Jo. The Jean-Francois link is interesting. At least Geno Hayes played in the game after trash talking Tim. The swamp will be rumbling.

The over under is at 46 points so I think your score prediction is a bit high. With the shortened games I'm going with 31-20 UF.

GO GATORS !!
