Top targets still on UF's board 

September, 25, 2012
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- With quite possibly the biggest recruiting weekend of year approaching, the Florida Gators have narrowed down their list of potential 2013 targets to roughly 10-20 possibilities. Sure, there are names that might be added to their recruiting board as the season moves along, but only a few spots remain in the 2013 class. Here's a closer look at the top five targets, in no particular order.

DT Greg Gilmore (Hope Mills, N.C./South View) -- The big defensive tackle from North Carolina officially visited Florida this past weekend and really enjoyed his trip. Gilmore has had LSU in the lead for some time but, after ranking his visit an 11 on a scale of one to 10, the Gators have pulled even with the Tigers. His parents appear to be favoring the Gators at this point, but will it be enough to be sway the No. 9-ranked defensive tackle in the country? Gilmore will visit LSU on Nov. 3.

S Marcell Harris (Orlando, Fla./Dr. Phillips) -- Harris just returned from Oklahoma and has visits scheduled to Florida for the LSU game on Oct. 6 and to Florida State the following week. It's significant that Harris is visiting Florida. He has visited the Gators unofficially several times and was planning to use his visits on other schools. Though he won't come out and say it, this appears to be a Florida-Texas battle. The Gators seem to be in good shape for the talented athlete.
