    Huggins and Burney are big enough to lay the wood at safety. Both are great pickups and Huggins ditching FSU makes it even sweeter.

    I’m just a longtime Gator fan like most of us and have no inside information - but like all fans do have opinions.

    I’d like to see Burney stay in the 220 range and anticipate and move well enough to be a run stuffing safety for his first year. After a year with Savage he might be in the 230+ range and grow into a mobile LB. It will be more fun watching the Gators actually improve on offense, defense and special teams than it has been for a while.

    Was a FSU commit under Jimbo that we were lucky to attract after his decommitment. Major Wright type hitter

    On this topic of Athletes either switching positions, or playing multiple, although certainly not always true through history, it frequently occurs that kids who play faster positions in HS, end up gaining weight and moving to more power-typical positions in college.

    Like DE/TE's becoming DTs, or Safeties becoming LBs, or QBs/RBs becoming TEs, to name a few.

    Perhaps the Best Example of this was Warren Sapp, who, when recruited, was the 100th ranked player in Florida as a TE, and ended up as one of the Greatest players even at Miami as a DT.

    Remember Wilbur Marshall or James Jones? Came to UF as TE and move to respective positions as all time greats.
