    DM or staff needs to reach out and secure a visit here or an in home, then it's news. Jones is definitely a legit prospect who would fit the system.

    This time of year if nobody (recuit or staff) is committing their time it's really a nonstory. This isn't fake news, but its not particularly interesting either.

    He's been looking around a lot in the past few months. Has taken a bunch of trips to Alabama, to the point where Ohio State has started recruiting Jarren Williams.

    If he's 110% committed to OSU as he says, and just wanting to take visits because he didn't get the chance to earlier, why waste any time or effort on a guy who in all likelihood isn't flipping to UF in 2 weeks.

    Only reasons he would consider us, and they are good ones, is a new coach coming in that runs a scheme he would flourish in... with no established starter, and the ability to become "the man" like Tebow.

    Consider this before you get excited. Quote "I would probably go up there if I had the time."

    Don't be surprised if Kedarius Toney gets a look at QB imo. Kid can throw and move.

    I'd need to see more.I don't quite buy in. He could be great as a change of pace still, or as a poor man's percy. Lining up sometimes at QB, sometimes at RB, sometimes at WR. Just get him 10 or so touches and good things should happen. Throw it once in awhile to keep teams honest. But I don't think he can run 20 times a game from the QB position (durability concern), or throw it 20 times a game with great success.

    I think he can be a weapon. although it should be emphasized "poor-man's" Percy. Percy was a whole different level of explosive. He has those type of moves, but not sure he is 2 steps faster than everyone else on the field like Percy was. I don't see that.

    I like Toney, but he has to stay healthy to be a DT QB.

    Agree - people also forget how physical Percy was. He always got that extra yard or two after contact when we needed it. He wasn't just a speedster.

    Percy also didn't dance, he just jetted. We have a few guys that spend time trying to juke, then get creamed.

    Toney would have to put on a lot more weight to play QB in Mullen’s offense! Don’t think he has the frame to..

    Harvin was a 5 even Gold Medalist in Virginia in Track, but he was not 2 steps faster than everyone else. Roughly as fast as Toney, possibly a small tad faster. Don't you recall when that track kid ran him down like he was standing still in the Bowl Game (admittedly, he might have been a bit tired there). And Harvin couldn't Throw the Ball.

    In comparison, Harvins big advantage was a very, very powerful body (smaller but like Tebow), while Toney's advantage is a reasonably decent pass, although anything but a great one.

    You are correct that you would not want him Rushing 20 times a game (much like Malik Davis), nor Throwing 20 passes (not accurate or strong enough for that), however, as SOS said: "Put the ball in his hands."

    I agree. Some don't realize just how impressive a physique the guy had. This is not the build of a typical college WR.

    [​IMG]

    The other thing he had going for him with all that power was amazing quickless/acceleration. That's why he was so elusive. It wasn't that he was outright faster than everyone else. But he could catch a ball, turn, and be almost full speed again in about one step. Just an amazing athlete.

    Harvin was also the quickest guy I've ever seen. He would make moves at full speed that you couldn't even see and guys with clean shots would completely whiff. Unreal. Toney is not even close to as good as Harvin.

    There is only one Percy. We may never have a player with his abilities for many more decades.:) Not even fair to compare Toney to PH.

    Toney is no Percy, but he ain't chopped liver either. The guy is a special talent. He needs to hit the weights hard this year and learn how to run routes. He has the talent to be an All-SEC caliber player.
