    Do you think he could be a replacement for Lewis? Maybe a move to push him out of this class in sense to make room for another scholarship? I know a lot think Lewis was just a take to try to get Bo but maybe Champ is finally giving up on that experiment.

    Hope so.

    Don't see him at blocking TE at all unless he gets really big, maybe too big for his frame. I'm not waiting around on these 215lb guys to add 50. Hope he does well at WR.

    Was going to ask about his speed. Without it, he looks like any number of WR commits we've had the past four cycles.

    The kid is going to play tight end at Florida. I am not sure comparing his speed to the WR position is appropriate. He had a lot of big time offers out there. Welcome to Florida, Moral.

    You might be right but I would still say he's a long long way from being a TE because he's only 215lbs and not very tall. One might project we don't need him for two or three years but that seems ridiculous given our current lack of play makers. We just lost Kent Taylor and as I understand it he never gained weight. Plus, we have Cyontai Lewis who is about the same weight, taller, and similarly ranked. I see him as a WR type and hope he's fast enough.

    He's 6'3 which is fairly tall but watching his tape he plays much taller, consistently getting the ball at its highest point. And did you see him mauling defensive players when he blocks.

    I thought this kid was a Plan B due to a lack of speed for WR or size for TE. Look at his offer list.

    Looks good, some great schools. You would have to know how "committable" those offers are I suppose. Same for any recruit.

    After seeing Benjamin running over DBs, they may be looking for a big body outside who can block in the run game, as well as catch the ball and get yac running through people.

    Watching his film that looks like him. Big body, soft hands and mauls defenders as a blocker. Reminds me a lot of a Chris chambers from the dolphins.

    Although i don't know him personally i have watched him play on a number of occasions. Kid seems to be a hard worker with good hands and feet for a big receiver. Never a bad word around town about him and believe me if there were any issues it would be known, Perry is a small town. I think he ll end up being a solid contributor and overall good representative for Florida. Good luck Moral and Go Gators

    I really liked his highlights. Doesn't look like a plan B to me at all.

    Moral is exactly the type of receiver that is over looked, underrated, although produced throughout out H.S., yet comes in under the radar and lights it up on the field. He could be a real redzone threat with his ability to high point the ball w/ soft hands.
