    I was going to say the very exact thing 7_5 the ones who get noticed are the ones who jump ship instead of the guys who never waver!

    Yeah but I believe our staff encourages recruits to take some visits, at least at this point in the cycle. Isn't that right? I'm not too worried, mostly because it's so early.

    I agree. We've got plenty of time to find an equivalent replacement should he decide on another school. We do need some quality DBs in this cycle though.

    I think part of this is also so that the recruits can see how other schools compare, and can see which areas the U of F really excels at.

    Also, I would think that the coaches don't want the kids to feel like they just settled on UF right off the bat. Encourage them to get out and see other schools and then when they commit, they feel confident they made the right decision as well.

    There was a recent article on 247 about a possible flip that Florida has been working on and I think it was referring to Norton. I'm not an member with them so I couldn't read the whole article but that's what I gathered from comments and links at the bottom of the page. Did anyone else that's a member get to read it?

    I hope it's derwin James. Dudes a beast and we could use a safety this class. Not likely but hey....

    I didn't read it but I also read that he recently visited Auburn so not sure how much they might be in the mix.

    Idk if this means much right now, but there are 6 predictions on Norton on the 247 website, all of which are for Florida, and even an Auburn recruiting insider picked UF. Let's hope he's right, we could use all the help we can get on the OL.

    Even with Auburn grabbing virtually anyone they want right now, I think he looks good to Florida. He's from the same school as D. Williams (UF Commit), Ben Edwards (AU commit), and Jeff Holland (AU/UF battle). Man that Trinity team is stacked. Hopefully we get Norton AND Holland.

    Nortons choices could very well determine or at least influence holland with each school having 1 commit a piece so far, Norton coming here may sway holland as well.
