    I know some are disappointed we didn't get Prince, but I am jacked about the OL signing class. Coupled with last year's class and our returning veterans, we should have depth and competition for playing time. Hoping Summers can coach them up. This has been the team's main weakness in the last two years, and if we can improve on the OL I think we'll have a good season.

    Yeah, two/three years down the line this class is going to be huge for us. Prince would have been great because of immediate depth, but oh well.

    As I said in another thread, I'd much rather we get Adoree than Prince, but I'm fine if we miss on him too. Our class is stacked and fills the needs we had on offense and then some.

    Prince would have been a bonus. Sharpe was the guy we all wanted at the start and he signed his LOI. I’m happy with the OL pick ups.

    Dontae Angus? If so, then he signed with UWV.

    That's the point, these guys will help 2,3 years down the line, but UF needed a full OL class like this.

    I hope Muschamp is still around to coach them, because that means he's turned it around. Hopefully the upperclass OL can keep our QB on his feet this year….

    I'll be disappointed about Prince when he actually lives up to his hype. I know he's talented but I sensed a certain cockyness from him that I don't know he'll back up on the field. I think he ends up OG anyway. Just my opinion.

    Yeah, I really wasn't impressed with Prince's highlights. Of course I wanted him to come to UF but I don't see him as an immediate contributor.

    Best OL class we've had in a long time. Much needed.

    My thoughts exactly. Seemed like every year we were just 1-2 guys short of filling the holes and I think we did that this year.

    Also very happy with this oline class. Oline recruiting is such a crap shoot, far more than any other position. Our problem has been that we just haven't brought in the numbers. You never know when a 2 or 3* is going to end up an all-american and a 5* a total bust. There's all kinds of low ranked o-linemen starting in the NFL and making pro bowls.

    No doubt, numbers are key. Finally the program appears to be on solid footing from a roster perspective. So avoid 15 injuries and get the offense inside the top 50 and we will be a really tough out

    And lets see if he does not turn out to be a problem in the lockeroom.
    Unfortunately... the outside fan rarely ever finds out about these things.
    While families (Moms, Dads, brothers and sisters of a player) wind up hearing the interesting details from their son who is playing at Maryland.

    I count seven players with some amount of playing experience on the OL (including Savary), three players who are redshirt freshmen with a year in the program, two freshmen who were early enrollees, and three commits waiting to get on campus this summer.

    No longer do we need to ask, where's the beef?

    Projected two deep? Shot in the dark here...

    LT - DJ, Sharpe
    LG - Garcia, Johnson/Thurman
    OC - Moore, Dillard
    RG - Brown, Sarvary
    RT - Green, Jackson

    How will no huddle impact it? Can Brown drop weight and get ready for that?

    Other frosh step up? Kelleher? Dorsey? Mike? Harkless?

    Regardless, it appears if these guys come back healthy, we have solid depth. Actually 10 guys who have played including Sarvary at JuCo level (he looked real good there, but I'm not sure about his feet at OT, so put him at OG).
