Big games like Florida vs. Alabama means visits from big-time prospects

SportsFootballFlorida GatorsAlabama (music group)

Nick O'Leary will be there. So will Curt Maggitt and Dee Hart, A.C. Leonard and Jabari Gorman. Ha'sean Clinton-Dixon and Tony Steward and Timmy Jernigan.

It will be a veritable Who's Who in high school football -- at least in the Southeast region -- today in Tuscaloosa, Ala., as the Crimson Tide host the Florida Gators, and a whole slew of top-notch prospects, including several from the state of Florida. Most players visiting are uncommitted, but Florida commit Leonard and Florida State commit Bobby Hart will be on hand.

Dr. Phillips stars Hart and Clinton-Dix are also in Tuscaloosa today for tonight's big matchup. Hart's decision is getting close and he said it could even happen soon after his 'Bama trip, although he plans on taking all of his official vists. He's been to Michigan, Auburn, Arkansas and today Alabama, and has yet to decide where he'll visit with his final trip.

Clinton-Dix is already committed to 'Bama and the Tide will be hoping to reinforce his commitment.

Three of the most-sought players in Florida will take in the game. Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer TE O'Leary will be on an official trip, while St. Augustine Menendez defensive end Steward and Lake City Columbia DT Jernigan will visit unofficially. They are the Nos. 3, 4 and 5 players, respectively, in the Sentinel's Florida Top 100 by Bill Buchalter.
