    I'm pretty sure Driskel wasn't even the #1 qb or a 5-star until he blew up in the camps his senior year.

    I like stars, but I also like winners. You don't need stars by your name to be a winner. You need a good coach that can mold you. That being said, star players usually attract other star players. So there's that...

    Not saying stars are worthless, just that we can't get too caught up in them.

    I agree 100% but a lot of people are acting like he's gonna come right in and take the 2nd string nod then start as soon as driskel leaves....do u think so as well? I've only seen some video and I know we have a couple guys already at qb on roster. It's gonna be a nice completion at least we know for sure.

    Well then off u go bud,
    If your trust is in man(muschamp) and not the Lord :) muschamp doesn't care about the star ratings which I love because he personally evaluates each recruit to his style and vision of play.

    I was really scared about the QB position until we got Will Grier. I think he has a great shot at taking over the QB position once Driskel leaves. I believe if anybody beats him out then they are winning the position not getting it by default. I can not say that was true before Grier.

    He's also only a junior, plenty of time for another star.

    Our coaches have proven already that their ratings are more valid than the star ratings dealt out by recruiting sites. Our coaches scout better than all of the recruiting sites. Case in point, A. Morrison. He may not have come in with 5 stars, but he sure played like a '5 star' this year.

    Our coaches have succesfully caused me to not consider star ratings anymore when it comes to Gators recruiting. If we get the players the coaches want...I am completely satisfied and trust their judgment. We had some misses late last year, but what made them misses in my mind was the notion that our coaches wanted certain players that we did not get...it was not about their star rating.

    In Christ forever,
    Mike

    That's what I have concluded. I think juniors don't get evaluated enough to get a 5 star rating. Once they go through the camp circuit and the scout services send their people then they will get an official ranking.

    "Bud?" We're talking football and Muschamp is the highest authority that matters. So you can take that lord talk to another forum.

    Why so sensitive, "bud???" I was talking about truth/life and football as well. And for some perspective, champ will never be the highest authority that
    Matters... AndI'll talk about the Lord anytime,bro but my main focus was about the team anyways. Go Gators and Go Jesus! That's why we celebrate CHRISTmas! Dont ignore the truth.

    I just think "Bud" is an insult. Unless you're offering it up at a beer summit.. :wink:. :wave:


    Oh, and I'm fine with Jesus and the lord. Merry Christmas to you and your family. :santa:

    My apologies brotha if I insulted you by saying "bud", I was wondering why you were so offended, didn't mean it that way. Likewise to you and your family. ---Merry CHRISTmas---

    Andrew Luck only had four stars and was the fourth-ranked QB behind the likes of Blaine Gabbert, Dayne Crist, and Mike Glennon.

    Three of those guys played real well in college. A top 3 QB in 2014 is great its much better than what Florida got the last two years.

    One reason this commitment is big news is Will Grier will be the talk of the 7 vs 7 circuit in the summer . I am pretty sure he will excel in that situation. This summer Grier's Davidson Day team beat Mallard Creek in a 7 vs 7 tourney. That might not seem like much but Davidson Day has no college prospects at WR or DB while Mallard Creek has Marquez North (top 5 WR in the nation), Brian Walker (offers from UNC Nebraska Auburn..) & Jorain Jordan( Georgia state Hampton Towson).
