    We've wanted two backs all along. Remember how we kept pursuing Bo even after Cook committed? Bo has a commutable offer whereas jones doesn't have one (likely get it if cook doesn't come). But cook is coming

    Maybe we should be reaching out anyway. I don't think 2 RB/3WR too many in the end. I imagine most good staffs still recruit the positions some even with solid commits. Arggh. Maybe the staff is extending offers just to troll us as well? Those guys are cards.

    Been through this enough to know that he’s either committed or not. Gators could really use Cook and Lane for that matter, but we never know with these kids until NSD, when they sign that LOI. Thats all that matters. We can only hope he’s a Gator, just like the Noles thought Fowler was a Nole. ;) Hopefully ESPN is NOT letting him announce, because his commitment didn’t change. Coaches never stop recruiting.

    Cook is an EE, so we will know long before NSD. If Cook enrolls at UF, that should make it a lot easier to get Lane on board. I don't think Lane is as big a question mark anyway. He and Grier have some real chemistry together. After seeing them play together in The Opening, I can't imagine Lane would want to go anywhere else.

    Oh yea, I forgot Cook was an EE. Thanks for the reminder. ;) I dont’ disagree about Lane and Grier, they did click at the Nike Event and I think Cook is solid as well. I’ve just got a feeling they all want to play together.

    Wrt recruiting Jones, we were always looking for two backs, weren't we?

    Bo Scarborough and Darrel Williams were targets in the past.

    If classes start Monday, how in the world can the coaches not know?

    We've said all along we wanted to get two RBs in this class and you can't get enough quality WRs. I highly doubt Cook and Lane are worried about us recruiting others at their positions.

    Not only that, but with the large amount of transfers we've had, we have even more room now for a running back. So it only makes sense that we are trying to add to the position.

    I think the Gators want to lock up Jones (Possible flip), Cook, Randolph (hopeful) and Lane and then focus on DL and OL. We should also pull Wilson, the Saftey from TX. (Jokers God Son).

    Thats right, thank you. As some of you can see, I dont’ follow recruiting as much as I use to. ;) I use to be so tied up in it, it was like this years OC announcement.

    I use to be all over every board I could find, looking for info and I remember my palms sweating come NSD. Now with all the EE’s and the early commits, NSD is not as exciting as it use to be. HollywoodBob was our know it all back then and I even had the privilege of speaking with him once over the phone. Nice guy and wouldn’t mind having him back.

    I just don't get it. What's the point of announcing when you're already committed to a school unless your intentions are to flip?

    @AndrewSpiveyGC: Dalvin Cook's grandmother says that Dalvin will announce at halftime of the game

    Sounds like you get it completely to me, but then I more or less gave up on Cook a few weeks back, sadly.

    IMO if he was going to flip,he would have decommited so he could be a live announcement with hats and all the drama.
