    Interesting.

    I would never have guessed that Shaq was that tuned in to college recruiting - although I'm not personally sure what our chances are looking like with the 3 players who have yet to commit.

    I love the attention, however. Never hurts to get some positive buzz about the program going.

    That would be a starting 5 with ridiculous size: 6' 5" PG with a 6' 7" SG and 6' 7", 6' 9", and 6' 10" across the front. This is like NBA big.

    Is this just random BS from Shaq or are there rumblings about these guys coming to UF?

    Random BS as far as I know, but it would be a great class, and I love that Shaq is recruiting for us :)

    Can you tell if Shaq or "his people" put together the poster/graphics in your OP, or did that come from somewhere else like some Gator fan/site? Someone went to a little bit of trouble (a lot of trouble for someone like me :joecool: but I'm thinking just a little bit for someone computer-savvy :geek:) to do that.

    I love Shaq and, other than the fact that I want a couple of those guys at UK, would love to see that class happen for Florida. Others on here certainly know FAR more about UF's recruiting than I do, but the only guy on that page that I think is likely for Florida is the one that is already committed.

    Francis is the only one that Florida will get. The others are a pipe dream, no chance.

    I agree that Francis is the only one of those we land.

    Shaq's a huge college basketball & football fan judging by comments he's made throughout his career. I think he actually follows college much more closely than the NBA. Plus with college ball, he doesn't ever have to hear the name "Kobe." :grin:

    Not all three, but perhaps one or two?

    Weird that he is pimping for UF and not LSU. Of course he lives in Florida and LSU's basketball program kind of sucks right now.

    I don't think he's being realistic or reporting on actual inside information. We might get visits from most or all of them. But we are probably considered a longshot for all of them as well (obviously except Francis).

    It would be an awesome class if we landed just 1 more of those, especially one of the bigs.

    Kind of weird for Shaq to comment on Florida recruiting. But it can't hurt. Maybe these guys will get ideas now. :grin:
