    #Florida Top #SleeperAthlete #6'4 210lbs. WR/TE/SS Tristan Reaves (Harmony HS.) is proving to be an asset to any program. UF is his life long favorite team and he has dominated many of the camps. the old WR coach loved his skill set but when he was fired (Aubrey Hill), things changed.
    Now as a verbal Commit to USC he is training with NFL/D1 super trainer Tony Villani (XPE) checkout the workout with UF's #SolomonPatton, #DominqueEasley.. (Ask SP how good this kid's potential is.)
    Highlights:

    Cheers,

    Seems to me an easy choice for UF. why not hire one of your own GA. MANGUS? Damn good OC..
    even if he did piss in an alley.

    He has a good track record so far. Must have had a good night in the clubs with Stephen Garcia to get arrested like that. If he had been in coaching in Tallahassee one of the TPD officers would have zipped him up and driven him home.

    So are you announcing that he is available and we need to make contact, or not ?

    Looks like a really good prospect.

    As I read the posts from some of the negative Gator fans, who have already given up on the 2014 season before it has started, I can't help but hope the young men who are actually on the team, and joining the team, aren't a bunch of whiny quitters.

    Brother, it's Georgia Southern. I don't think there was a single recruit on their team with 3 or more stars. Shouldn't matter. Plus the missing our "starting running back" thing is misleading at best. KT is the best back we have.

    This.

    Not sure of everyone missing but they were without 2 OL and a starting running back.

    Except that wasn't the point being made. Losing to gsu is embarrassing and inexcusable, yet posters will still make comments like "they were worse off than we were" bc somehow, the fact that we lost that game isn't bad enough. They have to find other ways to make us look even worse like make up statements about injuries. It's really not hard to make us look bad right now. Just don't understand the need to exaggerate just to get your post count up.

    GSU brought less than 50 players to the swamp. 41 is the actual number I heard quoted. That is significantly less than we dressed for the game. Our remaining players were/are considered vastly more talented. These are not "made up" conditions. Bottom line is GSU smelled blood before they even arrived. They had a decent game plan and executed.

    LoL people still making excuses for losing to Georgia southern? We would be laughing SO hard at our rivals if we heard them doing that.

    See:

    But nothing needs to be made up to exaggerate the magnitude of the loss. It's like falling on a treadmill in the middle of a loaded gym. One second you're running and keeping up with those around you, the next you look down and you're further back than anticipated. The machine’s speed is too fast for your steps and suddenly you’re slammed against a hot, moving conveyor belt that swoops you off of it like a humiliating ride on Aladdin’s magic carpet mixed with a post-tequila shot Tuesday mechanical bull ride.

    Not one person has done that. You know what else we've made fun of our rivals for...when they exaggerate everything and act like the world is going to end when they're down. I remember doing that exact thing after the ut and fsu games last season.

    I see three possible scenarios for next year. I'm optimistic that one of the first two will happen.

    1) UF improves dramatically -- wins the east, or more. Yay!
    2) UF doesn't improve enough to win the east -- WM finally gets fired. Yay!

    Worst case:
    UF doesn't improve enough to win the east -- but JF retains WM anyway. Rats.

    Do you know if any of the coaches have had contact with him (sounds like you just might know that)? If they haven't, I would take the intiative and make contact with them. Remember Rex Grossman sent Spurs a high school highlight film, got everybody interested, got an audition, and the rest is UF history.

    I don't know any of them, but I would find a way, if I were you. Sounds like he might have the "right stuff," and I love any kid who really wants to be a Gator just because. After all, so did Coach Muschamp.

    I think UF would be crazy to let him take his talents out of State.
