GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The Gators hosted several top prospects for their 14-6 victory over LSU on Saturday. Though Florida only had one official visitor, wide receiver Marquez North (Charlotte, N.C./Mallard Creek), the Gators also brought in five-star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil (Lake City, Fla./Columbia), Notre Dame linebacker commit Alex Anzalone (Wyomissing, Pa./Wyomissing), four-star safety Marcell Harris (Orlando, Fla./Dr. Phillips), four-star defensive tackle Montravius Adams (Vienna, Ga./Dooly Co.) and Florida State offensive line commit Ira Denson (Madison, Fla./Madison Co.).

Denson, the No. 3-ranked guard in the country, was impressed with Florida's offensive line enough that he set his official visit to Florida for the South Carolina game in two weeks. Florida's offensive line paved the way for running back Mike Gillislee, who was named offensive player of the week in the SEC. The Gators have been chasing Georgia and Alabama for Tunsil's services, but after a dominating performance by the line the Gators could be right back in the picture for the talented left tackle prospect.

Anzalone has been to Florida a few times since he committed to Notre Dame. The four-star prospect declined to speak with ESPN's GatorNation because he said Notre Dame coaches asked him not to do interviews after his visit to Florida.
