Friday Night Lights (also known as FNL), the brain child of former head coach Urban Meyer, has become one of the biggest offseason events for the Gators.
While most schools hold camps in order for prospects to get on campus and to work out in front of the coaches, FNL has grown to differentiate itself. Unlike other camps, FNL is a one-day camp held under the bright lights of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Rap music blasts from the stadium speakers while Gator highlights play on the video boards. FNL is one of the last camps that is held before the college season begins and is a great way for the coaching staff to showcase their program.
FNL has hosted the likes of Tim Tebow, Jon Bostic, Dre Kirkpatrick, Ronald Powell and Joe Haden. Haden was so impressed that he committed on the spot that night.
That is the kind of atmosphere that FNL brings to the table. What makes the event different from other camps is what makes it special.
Like every year, FNL will host some of the most talented prospects from around the country. Let's take a look at some of the players who will be in attendance this year and which ones the coaching staff should target as future Gators.
