DawgNation caught up with a number of them to get their takes on the game.
ESPN 150 DT target Montravius Adams (Vienna, Ga. /Dooly County) -- "If UF play like they been playing, which is as a team, they will win. But if UGA comes to play and can effectively use their balanced run and passing attack, the Bulldogs will be successful."
ESPN 150 CB commitment Shaq Wiggins (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek) -- "Florida versus Georgia is the biggest game of the year for both teams. It is RIVALRY, BLOOD, BATTLES, A LOT OF DISLIKING EACH OTHER. Basically the SEC CHAMPS will come out of this game.
ESPN 150 ATH commitment Tramel Terry (Goose Creek, S.C./Goose Creek) -- "I think it’s one of the best rivalries in college. I will go with UGA with the upset. After what Shawn Williams said I think the defense will play great."
ESPN 150 QB commitment Brice Ramsey (Kingsland, Ga./Camden County) - "I think the UGA versus UF rivalry is one of the best in college football. Great games every year and I cannot wait to be a part of it!"
ESPN 150 DB commitment Tray Matthews (Newnan, Ga./Newnan) -- "UGA versus Florida is going to be a tough game. UGA is going to have to scrap hard this game for sure! I am excited to watch it."
ESPN 300 ATH/CB commit Reggie Wilkerson (Citron, Fla./North Marion) -- "Young men like myself commit to teams to play in some of the big time games on big time teams, and to me UGA versus Florida is one of the biggest rivalries in NCAA history. Both teams can get it done in all three phases of the game. On Saturday it is all about who comes out more physically prepared. The team that does not turn the ball over will come out with the victory."
ESPN 300 WR commitment Uriah LeMay (Matthews, N.C./Butler) -- "I think with the outcome of the last two games and both teams having a win over the other over the past few years, it is going to be a heated fight and a good game."
ESPN 300 LB commitment Ryne Rankin (Orlando, Fla./East River) -- "The Dawgs better bring that Old Man Football Swagger to Jacksonville. Ain't nothing worse than a Bulldog bite! They will shut down Jeff Driskel and they'll be straight. Go Dawgs!"
Four-star OL commitment Josh Cardiello (Buford, Ga./Buford) -- "I think it is one of the greatest rivalries in college football . I'm really looking forward to seeing it! I feel like UGA is going to come out and shock a lot of people. It will be a four quarter war."
Three-star OT commitment Aulden Bynum (Valdosta, Ga./Valwood) -- "Florida versus UGA is intense... I love the atmosphere in the stadium with the fans split 50/50... Favorite game was in 07 when we rushed the field after Knowshon's touchdown."
Three-star DB commitment Paris Bostick (Tampa, Fla./Plant) -- "Simply put, whoever wins on Saturday was the better team. I have faith in my Dawgs."
Three-star WR commitment Rico Johnson (Swainsboro, Ga./Swainsboro) -- "The Florida/Georgia game means a lot to two of my mentors. One is a former Florida player and one s a former UGA player. When these guys tell me stories about this rivalry it almost feels like I am playing in it. So yeah this game means a lot. #GoDawgs!"
Juco OL target Trenton Brown (Albany, Ga./Georgia Military College) -- "UGA versus Florida is going to be a great game and I do not know who will win."
