    This is my fist post here I used to use scout but this is way better but anyways.

    RB Deandre Mann he won Juco MVP. I know him personally I went to highschool with him down in Miami so I know it's a bias opinion but check him out. He was the backup running back to Lamar Miller and he actually out rushed him in a few games in his junior year and lamar's senior year. Now obviously I want my boy to play for the Gators but I honestly think he would be a great steal. He just picked up an offer from the U. He's an all around back and if we cant land mckenzie or autry i think we should give him a chance. I know this is kind of unrealistic but if the right person sees this video maybe i just made something happen.

    Reminds me of Herndon.

    I like him, but doubt we go JC for any RBs.

    I agree I cant see us offering him, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't. His 40 time is listed as 4.36 idk if i believe it though tbh. But I would really hate to see him go off as a cane instead of a gator.

    He doesn't look like any 4.36, but he's fast enough. That's not an issue IMO.

    If I look at guys we have on board, KT and Herndon already bring similar skill sets and physical attributes. And KT is going to be getting a lot of touches as long as he's healthy. We might bring another guy like that as a frosh, but I don't think we'd bring in an older guy like that.

    If Deandre brought in something different like elite speed / break away ability, then it could be a different story depending on how our recruiting wraps up.

    But I'm not a Gator coach... that's just my guess on how they'll look at it. And if he does go somewhere else, probably better the Canes than the Noles or any SEC rival.

    When you go Juco it's typically to plug immediate holes. Can't see much playing time for him here, to be honest. I really don't see much interest from either side. Stranger things have happened, though.

    Everybody knows you never go full juco.

    You went full juco, man. Never go full juco. You don't buy that? Ask Bill Snyder, "Kansas State." Remember? Went full juco, went home empty handed...

    First of all, welcome

    He seems a bit slow to hit the hole, which after Jones this year would have me scared.. Once he gets going he looks good, and he has that quickness in a small space which Emmitt made so famous, and once he hits the second or third level he looks quite nice and fluid. If we were to get him I would be most excited with those catches he made, as I might want somebody with a bit more acceleration to hit the hole, but with what I said I think he could be very good on screens.

    Also my little bit of playing was with his number, so a part of me will root for any 23.

    And of course, what do I know, I'm just some guy on the interwebs.

    Looks to me like he can run away from you once he gets past you quite well, but that you'll be waiting a while for him to get to you. I'd be interested to see his 10 yard dash time or something to see if I'm talking bollocks or not.

    Great for him... Kansas is a good school.

    Tell him to be sure to take advantage and get that degree. Life after ball.
