    Yup. The staff probably feels pretty damn good about landing elijah huggins.

    And it doesn't help that Copeland called out pittman and said hes afraid of competition.

    You know Notorious, when a kid on a team tells a prospect who decides to go elsewhere that they are afraid of competing with me, I'm not sure that this hurts anything given how prideful so many young athletes are.

    People on message boards:
    Mullin should work the state of Florida, its a waste of time to go after kids in California (for the most part it is).
    Then Mulin gets a commit from say TJ Jones or some other Florida kid.
    People on Message Boards:
    He is only a three star, You need to get 4 stars no matter where they are from.

    That's recruiting.

    I'll always say stay in state. Always.

    And, I'll say this if you're going to spend a lot of time out of state on a kid like Pittman you got to get him.

    And we really don't know that the staff is really spending that much time in California.

    I don't know how much real time spent recruiting has switched from Florida to California, but there is a perception of change in philosophy from Florida recruiting to national recruiting, including significant expenditures in California, because not only does CDM have a guy in Ron English, as a position coach, with a west coast background actively recruiting and visiting California recruits, CDM hired Landers on the support staff as a wholly California recruiting guy. I don't deny that Landers could be a great asset to the program even if he did not have contacts in California as he gets a lot of mentions from recruits, but in past years UF would normally have support staff with strong Florida contacts.

    We can afford the free meals and show them a good time

    Go to the five stars wherever they are or you won’t get any.

    Nah,we should go after any 5* or top-100 type recruit we realistically have a shot at regardless of where they are.

    Of course the last few years, we have definitely NOT gotten our share of the top Florida talent. In general we haven't gotten enough top 100 type national recruits (under McElwain or in last years transition class), if we could do better in-state naturally it would help us get a few more of these elite national recruits. But that doesn't mean we should ignore out of state possibilities. We should do both!

    I would think just by convenience and geography, our staff by far must spend the most time watching in-state players. So I doubt it's a "resource" issue where we are ignoring in-state players in favor of out of state.

    We just need to fill needs. 4-5 OL that have a chance to play early is what we need.
    Also some LB's we have 4 committed.
    You can be 15th if you get what you need.
    5 star Sanders would help class but I would take a good 4 star OL over him.
