When the Hurricanes and Gators meet on Saturday, they will be battling for more than just a victory. The game may have a huge impact on which program locks up the best recruiting class in the state. Among the sold out crowd in attendance Saturday at Sun Life Stadium will be a “who’s who list” of recruits. According to the Miami Herald, 115 highly coveted players and 350 high school football coaches have been invited to watch the game formerly known as the battle for the Seminole War Canoe.
The list of invitees include 15 members of UM’s strong 2014 recruiting class and a few UF commits that the Hurricanes will hope to flip with a strong performance on the field.
The Gators have made a more concerted effort to land kids from Miami-Dade county recently. Florida’s 2014 class is full of talent from South Florida, including Miami Central running back Dalvin Cook and Homestead wide receiver Ermon Lane.
Saturday will be a chance for the Hurricanes to prove that they are on the rise and are ready to compete at a SEC-level. While the Gators are looking to show those in attendance and the rest of the country that they are still the elite program in Florida.
