In the biggest recruiting event of the year, over 200 players were on hand for the Miami v. FSU game on Saturday night. During and after the game, they took to twitter. Here is a collection of those tweets.
Canes commit OT Bar Milo enjoyed himself. And, before you ask, yes, that's a matte black helmet in the bottom right picture.

The headliner of the weekend, 5-star DT Rasheem Green also had a positive weekend
Green's teammate, 5-star LB John Houston, echoed those sentiments:
A player who was not on any list I saw for visitors was 4-star LB Quart'e Sapp from Georgia. He, too, seemed to enjoy his time in Miami.

2016 commit Sam Bruce was still deflated with the loss.
I really wished Miami would've knocked them boys off...— Sam BruceⓂ️ (@_QUICK6) November 16, 2014
Yet, at the same time, hopeful for the furture

2015 commit Dexter Williams was reflective, too

2015 CB Carlton Davis had a simple evaluation of the game
UM blew check— Carlton Davis III ™ (@Carlton_Lowkey) November 16, 2014
("Blew the check" is slang for "messed up a good opportunity". Used in reference to losing close games, dropping touchdowns, etc)
Contrasting that, 2016 5-star Saivion Smith enjoyed some of the other events of Saturday night

Remember how I said there would be way more recruits on hand than the ones listed in the preview article? I was right. Here is Binjimen Victor (who I listed) and 3 other SoFLA players who I did not.
3-star ATH Rodrick Archer was on hand. Here's his view from the recruiting section:
3-star DB Hunter Dale from New Orleans really enjoyed his visit. Says he'll return. Will that be his official?
4-star RB commit Jordan Scarlett was at the game, and threw up the U in support of the Canes. Also, if you go down his twitter timeline, he RT'd a bunch of pictures and videos leading up to the game.
4-star DE commit Scott Patchan, 3-star DT commit Ryan Fines, and more guys from IMG academy were on hand as well.
Still love my Canes! Can't wait till next year! #BeatFSU— Ryan Fines (@RyanJFines) November 16, 2014
Enjoy it. It'll be the last for a while.— Scott Patchan (@scott_patchan) November 16, 2014
Next couple years are gonna be special! Canes are comin back! #TheU— Ryan Fines (@RyanJFines) November 16, 2014
3-star OT commit Brendan Loftus was right at home back in Miami.
2016 WR commit Dionte Mullins, one of the most vocal Canes commits, lived up to that reputation
I don't care what nobody say The U played great last night— Dionte Mullins (@dionte_mullins8) November 16, 2014
2016 WR commit Dredrick Snelson was hype for the game too

Wish I had a picture of this outfit

2016 Booker T. Washington CB Dontye Carriere-Williams and 2017 Miramar CB Brian Edwards were on hand last night as well.
2016 LB commit Shaq Quarterman had lots to say during the game
I need the Defense took wake up!— iAmShaqQuarterman (@OgBoobie_Shaq) November 16, 2014
We have to tackle man!!!!— iAmShaqQuarterman (@OgBoobie_Shaq) November 16, 2014
COME ON MIAMI!— iAmShaqQuarterman (@OgBoobie_Shaq) November 16, 2014
We beat ourselves man! Missed opportunities, and poor tackling kilt us man. But I'm still a Cane! #CanesFam— iAmShaqQuarterman (@OgBoobie_Shaq) November 16, 2014
So too did 2016 4-star DE prospect Brian Burns (he's teammates with Dredrick Snelson, if you didn't know)
Time for a BIG time play right NOW !!!— Brian Burns #AHS (@Fire_Burns99) November 16, 2014

2016 LB commit Michael Pinckney was on hand too

2016 players Parker Boudreaux, Nolan DeFranco, and Ryan Bradley all traveled to Miami together
Boudreaux met Dionte Mullins' mother on the sideline
And, just to close this out, here's a pic of all the recruits standing on the sideline before the game

That was the experience (or partial snapshot) from recruits in the game. We'll find out more about how that experience affected the recuits in the near future.
