    Right on. Noticed that Powell was the lightest of the LBers. Probably saw some of his competition. Roberson is about 17, so easily swayed or even told what to do.

    Powell still likes the Gators. He's just open about his current indecisiveness. He's a nice kid, a fine athlete and might still end up being a Gator. He knows that he risks losing his place, but he hasn't completely given it up. As far as his size, we've had two highly productive multi-year starters in recent years who came in at or under 200 pounds. Shoot, Jenkins gained 30 pounds during his redshirt year alone and he's two inches shorter than Powell.

    Have no idea what's going on with Robinson, except he's in a tight squeeze trying to make the best decision in time for early enrollment. Could be some family interference. Would love to have him, especially since he'll be available for spring. If we miss, well we only had him for two or three days anyway.

    Still hoping against hope that Coley has been getting some first class tutoring and our coaches have quietly remained in his corner. IMHO, even coming in for Summer B, I think he'll be further along than any freshman WR. This kid came out of the womb running a curl route.

    Forgot that this was a Will Grier thread. Apologies for taking part in the hijack. My thoughts on Will; if it's down to NC, NC State, Tenn and UF, it's a breakaway slam dunk for the Gators. Let's see how long he remains the #6 pro-style QB and 78th best prospect. The Guinness Book of World Records is probably working on an entry for him. Let's see how long it takes for other stellar class of '14 prospects to start lining up. I'm thinking maybe Thursday.

    Add Mike Peterson to the list too. Went to a 190 something LBer when he committed, to a very good Gator, and has had a long career in the NFL.

    This would be huge if he is all Gator. Having a big time qb in a class is huge. Especially this soon. His commitment is good for two big time receivers.

    Grier has been saying for awhile we lead, and didnt make his trip to UNC who was considered the #2 team..hopefully all this leads to a commitment for us. He would be a huge get to start the ball rolling for next year. He is wildly popular with other recruits from everything I have seen at combines and 7 on 7s.

    I do want thread integrity. When Will commits there will be 3 threads that pop up. Also if we just use this thread the OP is about something totally not related to Will's commitment and does not show his highlights & Stars.

    Not sure when Grier Tweets his choice, but our "banter" is all in good fun.

    Thank you. And just for the record, I was just joking about your banter.
