    I think there's a good chance Worton ends up here instead of Treon Harris. We would rather have Harris, but FSU wants Harris to stick badly. Worton isn't getting much attention from FSU, so he might flip as soon as we give him the OK. Harris still has an in-home visit from FSU, I believe, so I'll wait until we hear about that before making any final calls.

    Looks like we can definitely count Worton in this class.

    Not sure I see any relationship between that and getting Harris. I think the issue with Harris (and family) is that we are late on him. Not sure whether we can build that relationship or not, but fingers crossed. Kid is a stud.

    And then last year Muschamp scooped up Marcell Harris, Demarcus Robinson, and Alex Anzalone towards the end of the year, and we put that speculation to rest

    There isn't a relationship other than the more commitments we pick up, the less spots we have for someone like Harris.

    Maybe so. I'm not arguing that one has a lot to do with the other, only that very recently it seemed we had a better shot at Worton than Harris, and that obviously came true. It's very plausible we get both, but I don't think the expectation should be that we'll oversign, because they've made it very clear they wont. Assuming Worton is a Gator, that leaves four spots, if I'm counting correctly.

    Leaves 3 spots if Worton gets picked up. We are at 21 right now.

    Just a guess, but seems to me we'd go higher than that for the right players. Riggs leaving (if true) clears another spot. And there's sure to be more after spring.

    Right. Don't believe the odds favor us going over 25 with top players. But if we were that fortunate hitting 27 shouldn't be a real problem and would likely resolve itself.

    gump stealing coker from the univ. of fs means keeping Harris is a bigger deal for the clowns.

    I am afraid Muschamp is falling into the old bowden trap of spending resources on silent (and not-so-silent) nulls in the vain hope they will flip. FAR too many more have flipped the other way over the years. It gets old.

    The latter makes no sense. Muschamp has had quite a few flips since he's been here and does a good job doing it.

    True that Harris would likely become a higher priority for UFS, but that doesn't mean we can't flip him or shouldn't try. Treon is a baller in a position of need for us.... definitely worth the effort.

    Does anyone know if that "big time silent flip" is still true or did it fall through?

    I think the Rudolph was the "big flip" and I'm not sure it was ever as sure of a thing as some guys made it out to be. He's still going to get a visit from CWM so we'll see.

    I believe that I heard Rudolph's In-Home-Visit is tonight with CWM. Let's hope that he flips. Stealing him, Worton, and God-willing Harris from FSU would be awesome. Especially coupled with Adoree Jackson, Damian Prince, and Isaiah Mckenzie.

    As much as I agree that being a "closer" is overrated and he did well with last year's class, the prospects you have listed were picked up on early enrollment signing day, so people won't think of that as closing. We still have to fight off the WM is not a closer crowd, probably the same people who are hoping we lose 12 games next year just to say they were right.

    Go Gators!

    If it comes down to Rudolph or Mckenzie...I'm taking Mackenzie!..but I'm sure we will make room for both of those guys!

    DR was definitely a late addition steal from Clemson.

    Agreed he was a very late addition, as an early enrollee. He was already enrolled in classes and spring practice during NSD. But stealing a prospect anytime of the cycle feels good.
