    You have to cheer for a kid who really wants to be a Gator. It's also apparent that the opportunity to play big time football in his home state is a "dream come true" type of thing for his family.

    I hope he has a great year and gets to be a Gator.

    We're going to have a very deep DE/OLB/Buck board out of necessity this year. I would say we need 2 Bucks (one being a home run) and 2-3 true DEs (also one needs to be a home run). I expect to see quite a few names to come up (and be replaced) throughout the summer and fall.

    Got to love kids who say this:

    . "It was like the whole world just stopped. I've thought about it since I was a kid and it's still hard to believe it’s true after all these years. Still feels like a dream."

    He's a take, did you guys read the article? If he is gonna decide in the next few days, he has the green light. Great motor, very talented, and absolutely loves the Gators. You have to take those guys!

    Still sounds like we're in great shape. It's not like he wasn't going to get these offers sooner or later and would probably want to take visits.

    When Harris sees UF put a couple of first rounders and a bunch of other first day selections in the draft, he'll realize that his dream school and business decision don't have to be mutually exclusive.

    Yeah but UGA is putting out a 1st rounder at his position. I would have liked to have him on board right now but CWM wont lose this battle. Harris will visit other school realize they are pretty much all the same and then commit to Florida.

    That was basically my point. Not that we are so much better than another school, but we are right there with the rest of them, and so going to his dream school would not be setting back his NFL prospects in any way.

    Correction: UGA is UF's least favorite opponent. FSU is simply UF's most obnxious opponent. :wink:

    And the Georgia Bulldogs are the Gators biggest and second oldest opponent.

    Call me cynical, but I don't get why a "dream offer" doesn't translate as a commit immediately.

    Sounds like a lesson in semantics to me.

    He was going to commit to Florida on the 23rd now he says he will go visit Urban

    Ohio State came in with Harris’ 17th offer on Monday and it threw a giant wrench into the plans he had laid out for next Thursday (May 23). He was going to announce his decision after the Wildcats’ spring game.

    Not any more.

    “Yeah, that changes everything. I’m going to try my best to get up there (Ohio State) for a visit,” said Harris (6-foot-2, 231 pounds), the second Central Florida player in the past week to be offered by the Buckeyes, joining Apopka quarterback Zack Darlington. “I know Urban Meyer is a good coach and a good man … and I like that.”

    What makes the offer more interesting is that Harris is a die-hard Florida Gators' fan, and Meyer's past with Florida could make a big difference in the recruitment of Harris.

    "It will play a huge role," Sinclair said.
