    Jeff Jones was very impressive yesterday. Great vision and good size.

    He is from Minnesota so it will be a tough pull. What are our chances bringing another RB into this class?

    Another RB? Not sure we have one yet. I don't know how tough a pull it will be. It was three degrees here in Chicago this morning. Doubt it got near zero anywhere in Minnesota. It's only going to get colder this coming month. Gainesville will seem like paradise.

    Just read about him on ESPNU and CBS Sportsline. Listed at 4.69 forty. Not impressive speed.

    4*? 4.69? That can't be right.

    Looked at a few sites and all seemed to quote the 4.69 time. He's not a big RB at 190. But oh well, we'll see what happens.

    Well as of right now we have one... a confusing RB commit, but a commit nonetheless. It would be nice to pick up another RB commit with or without Dalvin. Preferably with...

    This has the makings of James Davis/Keith Marshall part 2.

    I think he meant mike davis / Keith marshall. Where we continued to pursue marshall after telling davis we were done @rb. In the end we got neither but this situation is different. Dalvin knows we want a 2nd rb and he also knows he is better than any other back we bring in.

    As an Iowa State fan first, I've been following this guy's recruitment for some time now. As it's been stated, he's a Minnesota verbal, but his commitment seems to be incredibly soft. Since he's been committed to Minnesota, he's come down to Iowa State a couple times for camps and visits. I know Missouri was once thought to be one of the leaders and Michigan State has always been there too. He's reportedly called Jerry Kill a couple times to decommit, but they keep talking him out of it. It just seems like he wants to go anywhere but Minnesota. If Florida offers, they definitely have a good chance.

    Oops, I meant mike Davis of Clemson...mike Davis was pretty much committed to us. Champ wanted Marshall as we'll. when Davis found out he immediately committed to Clemson because he was suppose to be the feature back and felt like he was lied to because champ supposedly told him he wasn't recruiting anymore running backs.

    I'd def go by tape before made up hs 40s. His tape is very good and he has the frame to add 20#. Also seems to play a little angry.

    Oops u did it again. Lol. James davis was older brother of Mike davis. James went to Clemson when spiller was there, Mike went to play for SOS when Charlie Weis continued to recruit marshall. Marshal I believe was a 5* and a little higher rated than mike d. Can't say I blame the staff for continuing to pursue more talented players. Our situation with cook is a little different because he arguably is the best RB in the nation. If competition scares you off so be it.

    Currently, I think we have three RB's on Scholly for 2015.
    Clearly, we need one more.
    Two more, I'm not sure sure about.

    4- Lane Fr., Taylor soph., Brown Sr. and Jones Jr.
    Herndon is a walkon who was awarded a scholly last year but I believe that was just for last year. He will not have a scholly, more than likely, this fall when he will be a jr.

    MyakkaGator, going to need a better effort from you. Walk it off.
