    Well college basketball is over, spring practice is in the books, and I am bored. So let's see who can guess the next recruit to commit to the good guys. The winner gets the admiration of his/her GC peers. My guess is Adonis Thomas. I have absolutely no evidence to back this up, but like I said, I'm bored.

    Well thats not a bad guess since he said he was going to make a decision in July instead of at the end of his senior season. To be different I'm going to go out on a very thin limb and say that Ray-Ray McCloud commits next for a big surprise! If not him or Thomas then I think we could take a commit from a lower ranked player early this summer.

    Good guess, I almost went with McCloud myself. I would love to get Thomas on board soon so that he can start working on Holland to come to UF as well. He mentioned in an interview that the two of them talked about playing together at UF.

    He also has had similar conversations with Tevon Coney over Twitter and then Roquan Smith had mentioned on a visit that he and Thomas had discussed playing together. Idk if all this is actually true but it seems like Thomas is the key with this LB class.

    Well if Holland does decide to go to Auburn for whatever reason, I can easily be consoled with a LB class of Smith, Coney, and Thomas.

    On a related note, what the hell happened at Auburn and Alabama this weekend? They each got a bunch of commits. Something tells me we are doing the spring game wrong when t comes to recruiting.

    Or it could be the fact that one is coming off a National Championship game, and the other is coming off of going to the national championship a few times prior. When you have a 4-8 season, kids want to see the new product to make sure they are choosing a program on the rebound rather than the decline. I would guess if not for our 4-8 season we would have a multitude of top talent committed at our spring game. After that kind of season, we as fans will have to be patient for these kids to see the finished product, and IMO rightfully so.

    That's a great point about the record and state of the team being an issue. I certainly see that giving some kids pause. I also think that Bama and Auburn have more of a true gameday feel at their spring games. I don't recall us ever getting a ton of commits at the O&B game, but I certainly could be wrong about that. I guess the first step is actually having an O&B game, so we've got that going for us.

    Also, you didn't venture a guess to the original question. Who ya got committing next?

    We have certainly had big O&B games in the past, in terms of people committing. This could be a major year for UF recruiting but everyone will have to be patient. If I had to venture a guess on who would commit next it would probably be Adonis Thomas. He has recently made the declaration that he will be making a choice before the start of his senior season which changes tone a bit to what he had been saying. With him claiming UF as his leader two weeks ago I don't see too much that could of changed between then and now. I have read the he got a good deal of backlash from his claiming of a leader, which has led to his family kind of closing it down and not declaring any leaders till his commitment, but I believe that is why he just going to end it ASAP.

    That being said I think is going to be a race between he and Ray Ray. From my understanding, Ray Ray was ready to commit to UF when he had his mother and father on campus last, but Ray Ray's father didn't enjoy his college experience and wants to make sure his son is sure of his decision beyond the football aspect, which I fully respect and wish more kids/parents would do. I expect him to take a couple more visits to cement his decision. What I don't know is if he will take one or two before the season and pop, or will take a few going into the fall and then pop.

    Both will be big time players so I am not really concerned who commits first, as long as both hop on board.

    "@_SimplyThatGuy5: Official commitment date Aug 1st" (Adonis Thomas)

    Think he is a Gator on the first.

    Hope so. Sounds like he could be a great recruiter and get another LB to join him.
