    Well well well look who is in Mixons top 10 that was no in his top 18 or whatever he made last time. I made a little reference to this in the OP earlier today

    No #USC in Top 10 for RB Joe Mixon. Florida, Oregon, Vols, A&M, Cal, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, tOSU, Oregon State and Washington make the cut

    Here is the background story Quincy Wilson Kd Cannon Jamal Adams Joe Mixon and others have all been talking about going to the same school since the Opening and the one school they all have in common is UF. I do not believe in package deals of elite players but sometimes players can influence others to take a visit.

    I am not even sure we get a visit but I have been cautiously optimistic since the opening. I know UF was really high on Mixon from the start when he was not rated as high.

    He also loves the attention so you can take him to serious

    At the end of this clip you will see Wilson and Mixon watching 7 vs 7 together at the opening

    I like his pass catching skills more than his rushing ability. Love his straight line speed, is he up to possibly changing positions (thinking wr)

    Great stuff, AZ.

    Was wondering about the second back myself or maybe even a FB. Mixon is the real deal and no way you turn him down but he has a similar skill set as Cook. He could easily add weight once he's on campus though and he wouldn't be needed right away anyway. Would be an ideal situation for him to end up at a place like FL where he could sit, learn, grow and become a monster late soph/Jr year. Would make a hell of slot too but like you said he's a better back. Just figured we'd look for more of a complimentary/bigger back to Cook. Since Bo and Hurd aren't likely options are we after any other h-back/big back types? It's a running joke but I'm biased towards my FB's(lol). Would love to see one a year but I know that's not practical or even smart. Florida recruits enough athletes that it's not hard to slide a kid in from several other positions like Ajagbe. FB is is more an attitude than talent anyway. Wouldn't mind seeing Givens get a shot but that might mean we missed on someone to have the extra scholly it would take for him to get one. From the latest pics of Lane he could easily play the role and be weapon there. Nice way to get him on the field in a couple of years if there's a log jam at rb.

    Long story short was wondering your thoughts on rb situation and how you think it plays out or what direction they may go(I know it's all a guess but you guess better than most). Will we definitely take another back or are we content with Cook(I am because we're in good shape after this cycle after adding Cook and 15 has a couple of nice in-state prospects, namely Scarlett). Think we take a FB if there's room, and of who's left, who's highest on the board? Any prospects for h-back/Burton role after Bo or Hurd?

    With respect to Zach A, who I respect because he's not a shock journalist, that's probably was the best and easiest recruiting read I've seen in awhile. Again, congrats, and I hope all is well with the fam.

    Richard Yeargin committed to Notre Dame and the mock class already looks bad. I didnt know if he was a take or not with Justus Reed on board (I assume he was a take). Most people felt ND had lead most of the process

    LAVISH SWEET PEA ‏@AdoreeKnows 1h
    PSA: Me And The Cuzzo @Joe_MainMixon Going D1 Together . Translation The Same College ��


    Adoree Jackson talking about going to the same school as Joe Mixon. Like I said earlier in the thread a big group all have been talking about going to the same school and the one school they all have in common is UF.

    Quincy Wilson KD Cannon Jamal Adams Joe Mixon Adoree Jackson maybe Dwight Williams but I am not sure.

    Also remember Wislon is adamant that him and Ermon Lane are going to the same school and Lammons has mentioned going with them as well

    Lol I appreciate your mock class! Yeargins dad just said like yesterday or the day before that uf had the lead for his son and the fact that were close to home for him helps as well. I'm actually shocked especially the way he spoke about us after Friday night lights. Oh well, I don't think he was a make or break kind of guy in this class.

    one other thing to note I think the reason TE Lewis was not at FNL's is because he was in vegas for Bball.

    Just to make this scenario even more ridiculous Mixon and top Guard Damien Mama have talked about playing together in college. Mama did have UF in his top 13 and he is in contact with Tim Davis
