Bridesmaid sucks. Oh well, Randle your up. Come on in to a very talented team next year. Be a man and help lead the Gators to the Final Four. Recruiting nationally is a tough job. Everybody that waits to pick a school boils down to what some other people tell the recruit to do based on perception. Our record on getting Chicago recruits I don't even remember one who has come down here in basketball. The SE of the US and the east coast is where most of the kids come from. I guess in college basketball you can't pick your fights but common sense says these advisors will always favor the teams the media loves to talk about. Duke is one of them. Florida doesn't have a long basketball history of being a highly ranked school so these people from the far off locales always seem to turn prospects away from us. Think WWW, as an example, if he sells for us this doesn't help him. If he sells for Kentucky, the media loves this for some strange reason.
Mich. St. was as close as we were for Parker, I wonder how Izzo feels? I never felt Parker was coming to Gainseville. I know he liked Billy, but, when they wait too many people start giving advice then at the end, the recruit caves and bellows "Playing at Duke and playing for Coach K a legendary coach was too much to resist", this is an easy out for the kid. You know, you can't go wrong, they are always in the Final Four. LOL
I love Billy though, but it must be hard taking the calls I appreciate ya'll recruiting me but.......... I have decided to go to ............... fill in the blank. It must make it especially great when we a recruit tells you, I want to be a Gator!
