These 4 blue-chip 2024 recruits are heading to Gainesville for late-July visit

·2 min read

Florida football’s recruiting efforts are currently riding on high after a recent coup that saw a trio of 2023 prospects committing in a matter of hours. While things are still cooking with the current class, the scene is set to heat up even more at the end of this month when a flood of prep talent arrives in Gainesville for the Friday Night Lights and annual cookout events.

Among those making their way to the Swamp that weekend are a quartet of teammates from Hollywood (Florida) Chaminade-Madonna, who are set to make official visits on July 28, according to Gators Online. Wide receivers Joshisa Trader and Jeremiah Smith, both of whom have earned five-star ratings from various prominent evaluators, as well as quarterback Cedrick Bailey Jr. and running back Davion Gause all plan on making the trip up Florida’s Turnpike to join in on the action.

Below is a look at the four rising juniors and how they size up both literally and figuratively according to the major scouting publications.
