Well its been well documented on UF commits wavering/leaving (Cook, Lane, Jackson), committing (Sousa, Willis, Sharpe), interested (Jackson, Carter) and newly offered (Jones, Mckenzie) but lets get inside the mind of the coaches and recruits per inside info. Its no insider info that 4-8 kills recruiting my Gator faithful, most these kids are instrumental parts of their teams success since they were 5 yrs old and selling on early playing time for a program with major coaching uncertainties and recent history of mediocrity is difficult for even the most talented recruiting coaches. What happened with Cook: The polarizing personality and talent phenom was on record of being the hardest UF recruiter at the opening and throughout the summer, Cook spoke and recruits listened (unfortunately they still do). After the loss to GSU and then FSU, FSU coaches put the full court press on reports of them using look at our program vs UF pitch took a back seat to “I’ll tell you what UF is selling you”, they informed him you’ll hear “come and change the program” “we’re almost ready to hire off coor” “loyalty and respect”, they asked Cook does that sound familiar? They began to shoot holes in the UF pitch about all these points and asked him “where is their loyalty and commitment to you?” “you have recruited more talent this year than them” all for empty promises and more uncertainty. They proceeded to inform him the decision was easy and with his EE he would be on the sidelines at the NC instead of limbo at UF. Some may remember him using his connection with coaches and the term loyalty in his decision. Not condone how he handled by any means just giving the information that is justly do to GatorNation, cannot reveal source so that I can continue to inform anytime they have information, in this day and age credibility is paramount so feel free not to validate my info if chooses. Cook will use these same tatics with Lane, Jackson, Jackson. Now for this kids not in this SoFla web, Muschamp and staff have been preaching a fresh energy in Gainesville with the hire of Roper, Roper has begun his recruiting trail with talents such as Jeff Jones, Derrell Scott and McKenzie and will also sell the aforementioned wavers-early reports (not confirmed) say that he's using his scheme concepts (Duke) with their talent level compared to what he had at Duke. We have to except some facts, we are late in the game with current offered recruits, no relationship with families, and some feel as if they are second rate on UF wish list, but that’s what our coaches get paid what they do. Mckenzie (if/once eligible) wants ND badly but sees he needs a contingency plan, Scott is very strong to Oregon but will hear the home state coaches and Jeff Jones is very intrigued by a bigger program, has chip on his shoulder because of pre UA perception (which is good for who he signs with) but we weren’t the only ones that notice these and bigger schools are knocking. Agree or skeptical had to do my part as a proud Gator fan and these forums make Gator Nation great! Until next time!
