    I was wondering this too, he’s headed to Ole Miss this weekend and potentially LSU I would assume next weekend if he’s going to do an OV when is he coming to UF before the 20th...

    So my optimism the first week after the Mullen hire is going downhill fast. Is 2018 going to be yet another year without a viable option at QB? This could turn out to be an absolute disaster especially since Corral helped us recruit.

    If LSU signs Corral and Corral it what we fans think he is, they could become a for real national championship contender in a couple of years, regardless of Ed Orgeron's coaching abilities.

    Sorry I am a little confused. Is Matt visiting other schools this late in the game or is our new coach on top of his recruitment?

    From what we’ve been told & what we have seen publicly
    • Matt is visiting Ole Miss this weekend for an OV
    • Matt may also visit LSU for an OV in the near future
    • DM has yet to meet Matt, he has spoken with both Matt and his dad on the phone
    • Billy Gonzalez did an in home visit with Matt and his family last week
    • DM did an in home visit with Justin Fields last week
    • DM had contact with several other QBs last week, 5 according to Zach
    I think that about covers it.

    So yes Matt is looking elsewhere this late in the game (remember he also did an OV to Alabama), whether it’s becasue DM told him to or he didn’t appreciate DM going to see Fields and taking days to even contact him, we have no idea, but it appears Matt is looking at other options. How serious is he looking at other schools? We have no idea but he’s looking.

    The next week will be interesting and we should have a better idea where he stands.

    What can Ole Miss and LSU sell him on? We have Mullen who has gotten QBs to the NFL, dammit!

    Corrall is a pro style QB and Mullen offense is not a pro style offense. See Brantley, John, circa 2010.

    Mullen was here from ‘05 to ‘08. Maybe Brantley’s situation works out better if Mullen was still here.

    Leak was pro style. Mullen was not Brantley's coach.

    Saw this a few days ago, I got the impression both Matt and his family were frustrated by the lack of communication coming from DM.

    Hard to know if DM thought he was in the bag and he didn’t need to spend time or $$ visiting & talking to him OR if DM cooled on Matt and instead of coming out and saying it let his actions on speaking and visiting other QBs speak for him.

    It’s pretty clear though there was an initial lack in communication between UF & Matt and now UF is trying to kind of do damage control by sending out Gonzales and DM calling Matt but I still think it speaks volumes Matt has no OV scheduled with us and DM has yet to go visit him in home (which yes he could be waiting to do as a last minute thing).

    Again hard to tell what happened exactly but it appears Matt and his family were frustrated with DM and the initial lack of communication so they are now looking elsewhere, Alabama, Ole Miss & LSU.

    The quote that sticks out the most is the one saying they have to build a relationship before Matt would sign. Not a lot of time to do that before Dec 20, especially if he takes 2 OV to other schools.

    I’m still hoping he signs with us come Dec 20 but what seemed to be a sure thing two weeks ago now imo could go either way, he signs or he flips to another school.

    How did Leak’s post-UF career turn out after running the spread? I realize that Mullen was not Brantley’s coach but Brantley was a pro-style QB in a spread offense and it didn't work out. Should have stuck with Texas.

    Everything I’ve seen on Corral says he is a pro-style QB. He might be fast for high school but Im not sure he wants to be running the ball 10+ times per game in the SEC.

    Yeah but in the same breathe I don't know how he is going to build a relationship with these other coaches in that short a time frame either. In the end I still think we get him

    What did you expect from Leak's post-UF career? He was an undersized QB who lacked ideal arm strength. Coaching has nothing to do with either of those.

    That’s why I’m hoping we get the OV next weekend and not another school. Much easier to build somewhat of a relationship when you go for a weekend long OV vs chatting a time or two on the phone with a HC.
