Like I said, the guys I listed are, who I think, the most likely suspects. There's a ton of talent out there and some of it hasn't emerged yet, this will all change in a few months. A lot of the guys I listed have already taken unofficial's to UF and who are on the radar. These are the guys, this early in the 2014 process, that have shown some interest or vice-versa... and some are there simply because they are the best in the state.
The OT's I listed are the best in the state of Florida. Not the country. BUT You can go ahead and put McDermott up there since he will possibly be a top 3 OT in the nation. Also, 247 has OG Isaiah Wynn (FL) as the best Guard in the nation... we'll see where ESPN and Rivals puts him.
As far as Grier and some of the RB's and WR's looking runt-ish... They're all still Jr.'s... I assure you, they'll put on some weight and maybe grow an inch or two.
Again, I think there is better talent out there, in some cases, and it really shows in some of our Defensive targets, but if you look at the early lists for 2014... you will be hard-pressed to find legitimate Offensive targets. There's some guys out there, but they are being recruited and leaning on other programs. I am sure that will change when we enter the mix, but you got to give it some time.
