    I think its UF for Elam. We do have room for him and would take him no matter what. Also kids say they are going to play together all the time and usually does not happen. All UF to me.

    No idea about the TS stuff but let's be honest about him...UF was his dream school with Mac and it's not with Mullen. Clearly the elevator stops short.

    Miami, that's just wishful hoping being in Patheticville. We got room for him.

    Rumor mill is he was definitely leaning UGA at the end of the regular season, but UF briefly caught up when Mel Tucker left. Haven't heard anything in awhile, so I can't say whether we've maintained a slight lead, or lost it again.

    As of the week leading up to the all-star games, the rumor was Elam leaning towards Georgia. One of the sites has him as a Florida lean, but their ranking system works more like Rotten Tomatoes than Metacritic. They operate on the percentage of experts who pick one school over another, not the likelihood of them going to that school. A number of the "experts" picking Elam to Florida haven't updated their "pick" in months.

    Even though I believe Elam comes to UF...say he doesn't, Steele is gonna be a baller and I think Hill will be very good as well. Kimbrough I think too will be good but not like the other two.

    Would work out great if we get him.
    Get CS and KE some plays behind Wilson and Henderson who will be gone after next year.

    In a nickle and dime defense they all play... and we do alternate quite a bit as well. We lost the UGA game because we had zero depth behind our starters and one of the starting DBs wasn't named Wilson. We still need Kaiir, and I think we land him.

    Losing Elam wouldn’t be the end of the world, but getting him would put us in excellent shape downrange.

    I hope I am wrong but the longer this drags on, the less likely he will be a Gator.

    The choice should be obvious but may not be for him.

    Id bet he has already decided. He just wants to take the rest of his trips and get the publicity of announcing publicly on national signing day.

    Him and Chris Steele have talked about playing together in the past. Whoever said we don’t have room for him is just making things up.

    No, I think Miami meant WE DIDN'T HAVE HIS ROOM yet for him, over at Keys Complex, I guess they are putting in new floors and paint.

    It's true, we don't have room but it's something where we can make room by having another guy transfer.

    They are correct. UF sits at 85 on scholly counting all unsigned commits. Anyone else added will mean someone else will be leaving.

    There’s no way of knowing who already plans to transfer
