Gator fans with a weak stomach might want to skip this.
The Gators sit with only eight commitments going into the first of three final weekends before national signing day. While the Gators host a number of recruits this weekend in Gainesville, the eyes of Gator Nation are squarely focused north as three of their top defensive targets are visiting rival Auburn.
Five star defensive end Byron Cowart (6-4 250 Seffner, FL), Five star defensive end CeCe Jefferson (6-2 275 Glen St. Mary, FL), and four star linebacker Jeffrey Holland (6-2 230 Jacksonville, FL) have all long been at the top of the Gators’ board. And for just as long the Gators have been the favorites to land them.
That is, of course, until Will Muschamp was fired. Suddenly the Gators were vulnerable. And that was before Muschamp was hired as Auburn’s defensive coordinator. Now with the three spending a weekend at Auburn with the guy that has a longer and deeper relationship than any other coaches, the heart of Gator Nation hangs anxiously in the balance.
They say recruiting is not for the feint of heart. Regardless, this tweet from Byron Cowart has to make Gator fans sick to their stomach.
