    This weekend Florida will have a much lighter load on the recruiting front, especially when compared to last weekend. With only one uncommitted official visitor due on campus, what will most bear watching is what is going on with UF targets who are visiting elsewhere.

    Here is a breakdown of who is expected to be on campus this weekend for Florida as well as a look at where the Gators' top targets are scheduled to be.

    1 Rivals100 member
    1 four-star prospect
    1 three-star prospect

    Though this may be a light weekend on the recruiting front as far as official visitors, many of UF's top targets are still on the road taking visits.

    Five-star defensive end Robert Nkemdiche will officially visit Ole Miss this weekend - which is his likely destination despite saying all schools are even.

    Five-star defensive tackle Montravius Adams will officially visit the Georgia Bulldogs this weekend.

    Rivals250 running back Alex Collins will take his final official visit this weekend to the Arkansas Razorbacks.

    Four star defensive end Tashawn Bower is set to visit the LSU Tigers this weekend after having an in-home visit with Florida defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin on Thursday night.

    Newly minted four-star wide receiver James Clark will visit Ohio State this weekend rather than Florida. However, he still says that the Gators are an option.

    Three-star JUCO defensive tackle Jarran Reed and three star wide out Ryan Timmons both will be in Lexington this weekend visiting the Kentucky Wildcats.

    University of Florida Official Visitors: Jan. 25, 2013

    ALVIN BAILEY
    5-11, 170 pounds
    Seffner (Fla.) Armwood
    Primary Recruiter: Joker Phillips
    Wide Receiver ranking: No. 13
    Rivals250 ranking: No. 101


    Level of Interest: COMMITTED

    Others: None

    Video Reel
    Headlines

    The Skinny: Though he has missed two other scheduled official visit dates set with Florida, there's no need for concern. Bailey has not wavered at all in his commitment to the Gators.

    RODERICK JOHNSON
    6-6, 315 pounds
    Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage
    Primary Recruiter: Travaris Robinson
    Offensive tackle ranking: No. 30
    Florida ranking: No. 55


    Level of Interest: COMMITTED

    Others: None

    Video Reel
    Headlines

    The Skinny: This Florida commit will be making his first trip up to Gainesville in some time now and is excited to get back to see the campus. After decommitting when former Florida wide out coach Aubrey Hill resigned before the start of the season, he has been solid since once again pledging to the Gators.

    LEVONTE WHITFIELD
    5-9, 176 pounds
    Orlando (Fla.) Jones
    Primary Recruiter: Joker Phillips
    Wide receiver ranking: No. 38
    Florida ranking: No. 62


    Level of Interest: Medium

    Others: FSU (COMMIT)

    Video Reel
    Headlines

    The Skinny: While it is interesting to have an FSU commit on campus this weekend, Whitfield is still considered to be solidly to the Seminoles. He is in town for a track competition and will check out more of the Florida campus while there. With Florida's success in track in recent years maybe that can have some sort of impact on the four-star wide out. Add in the recent upheaval among the FSU staff, and there might be a very, very slight possibility that Florida can do something here - but it is unlikely.
