    Ehh, I just call it surviving this agonizing pain that is the offseason :)

    Who ever came up with this whole "offseason" thing should be stripped then tar and feathered in the middle of town.

    We weren't really going hard after him. I think fans were higher on him than the coaches. No one cared about him before that 5* was labeled on him. I followed him from following quincy wilson. Those 2 are good friends and play on SFE together. He has great size for a corner at 6'3 but I don't think he is as good as quincy or even lammons from SFE yet they were only 4*.

    Seven UF commits in updated ESPN300
    by Zach Abolverdi

    ESPN apparently thinks very highly of Florida’s 2015 class thus far.

    Seven of the Gators’ nine verbal commitments were in the updated ESPN300 Wednesday. UF had just three commits in the rankings were they were first released in April.

    Florida still has a small class size at this point relative to past years. However, the quality of recruits is making up for the insufficient quantity, according to ESPN.

    The Gators currently rank No. 14 in the site’s class rankings, but they’re one of only two teams in the top 15 with less than 10 commits. The other school is Southern Cal, which ranks No. 12 with eight pledges.

    UF commits in ESPN300:

    No. 107 — Tyler Jordan (No. 8 offensive guard, committed to Florida as a center)
    No. 125 — Tristan Payton (No. 12 wide receiver)
    No. 145 — Derrick Dillon (No. 9 athlete, committed to Florida as a wide receiver)
    No. 150 — Marcus Lewis (No. 9 safety, committed to Florida as a cornerback)
    No. 181 — Jalen Julius (No. 15 athlete, committed to Florida as a corner/receiver)
    No. 192 — Deontai Williams (No. 15 safety)
    No. 216 — Sherion Jones (No. 8 dual-threat quarterback)

    The Gators are also in contention for 12 uncommitted prospects in the top 100 of the ESPN300: wide receiver George Campbell, offensive lineman Abdul Bello, Martez Ivey, Javon Patterson and Christian Pellage, defensive lineman Byron Cowart, CeCe Jefferson and Kendrick Norton, and linebackers Jerome Baker, Jeff Holland, Roquan Smith and Adonis Thomas.

    Florida’s class is currently ranked No. 22 by 247Sports with three Top247 members, No. 22 by Rivals with two Rivals250 members and No. 24 by Scout with three Scout300 members.

    I find it hard to believe that Sheriron Jones is all the way down at 216 in the updated rankings. I look at 247Sports more than I do ESPN because I feel like they're more accurate and take more things into consideration. He's No.131 on theirs with a ranking of 94 which is a very solid 4 star recruit. But at the end of the day I'm glad our commits are trending up and not down, that's always a positive and tells me that our recruiters are doing a great job of spotting talent that others may not see right off the bat.

    Thanks for the update

    Man I hope we take this one over bama. I'm a bit tired of them having their pick of the litter every year.

    Me too. The only thing I don't like is them getting his last visit before he commits. He hasn't scheduled another visit to Florida before he announces. Of course, that doesn't mean he won't. We have led for this kid for a while, so I really hope we can seal the deal.

    Hopefully he comes to Friday Night Lights, that would make me feel very comfortable. Although, if he doesn't come I don't necessarily think that's a sign that he's going to choose Bama, it would just make me feel a little uneasy until Aug. 1

    @ZachAbolverdi: LB Jerome Baker tells me he will announce his decision tomorrow at 10 a.m. ET at his school. His finalists are #Buckeyes, #Gators and #Vols.

    I know this may not be the right thread to ask this, but does anyone know anything on Tim Settle and Shy Tuttle? I know UF isn't in contention, but I am really curious as to what schools are. Thanks guys

    According to 247 sports Settle is pretty much up in the air between Clemson, Alabama, Virginia, and Tennessee. He's a slight Clemson lean if anything, although you can't rule out the homestate Virginia at all. Tuttle on the other hand likes UNC a lot from what I've heard. Clemson is also in the discussion, but not to the extent of UNC.
