The Florida coaching staff hopes to have Ben Hill Griffin Stadium rocking on Friday night for their annual Orange and Blue Debut spring football game. For the second year in a row, the Gators have added a creative twist, holding the spring game on not only a Friday instead of the usual Saturday, but also having the game at night under the lights.

Florida will play host to quite a few of their top targets on Friday.

Inside the Gators takes a closer look at who to expect in the South endzone bleachers.
