Florida’s basketball game against Tennessee tonight isn’t the only hot ticket in Gainesville. New head coach Will Muschamp will be hosting the first Junior Day for the class of 2012 and several talented juniors were invited to check out the Gators’ facilities and meet the new staff.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, 2012 Florida commitments LaTroy Pittman and Omari Phillips are expected to be in attendance. Both Pittman and Phillips are on the MaxPreps 2012 player to watch list.
Attendance from South Florida to the Junior Day festivities will be limited somewhat due to the Under Armour combine going on in Miami but there are still plenty of talented players taking a closer look at the Gators. Some notable players in attendance who should be popping up on everyone’s radar include offensive lineman Blake Fromang, quarterback Vegas Harley, running back Qua Barnes, wide receiver Alton Howard and defensive end Jelani Hamilton.
No word on how many times coach Muschamp will say “Boom!” today but you can bet he’ll say it pretty loud if anybody commits this weekend.
