    I don't know about Perine, but Scarlett keeps losing weight.

    I think he's at about 207 which was his high school playing weight. Didn't he come in two years ago at about 195?

    Rhett was a HARD runner. When I watch his games, I'm surprised he was not injured more with the amount of abuse he took. I also think that was the main reason his NFL career was so short. He was unselfish and gave his all to SOS and the Gators.

    Was about the competitive remark you made, not about recruiting! Haha.

    I thought Scarlett came in at at least 200 but could be wrong. He was 213 last year I think and I thought he was over 215 at one point here. I thought Perine was around 210 when he got here but I could be wrong about that too.

    Pierce's running style reminds me of Rhett a little bit with Pierce a bit faster and shiftier.

    Clement specifically sought him out at a camp and told him...We really need you at uf...it has to be us together in the backfield at UF this year. Lets do it...something along those lines but he said it much cooler than I just did. Lol

    We have a few kids putting in mad work as recruiters and its paying off in a big way.

    Rhett was very highly recruited through his junior year and had all but committed to fsu. Had a very serious knee injury and missed his senior year entirely. Bobby backed off and we reaped the benefit. Seems like the injury was so severe that he redshirt his first year, Galen's last year, but I could be wrong on that.

    I think you're right on the money. I remember the part about fsu pulling their offer. Rhett really wanted to be a nole.

    After watching his clips, I thought he was way underrated. Was expecting this to happen for his senior season.
