    And given the huge WR losses after next season Heath will be the perfect fit to step in with some experience

    He was committed to both Tennessee and Miami. I’m hoping his 110% pledge is his way of saying he’s finally found a home!

    Jalon Jones and Anthony Richardson just became much better college quarterbacks.
    Plus this opens the door for CDM to go get a highly rated QB for 2021, knowing great receivers are already waiting on him.

    Assuming Richardson ever becomes a QB. Good chance he turns out to be another super talented WR or even TE. He's a better athlete than QB.

    Next WR on my wish list is EJ Smith. I know he's listed as an APB but damn that kid can track the ball in the air, come down with it and get away from defenders. Almost impossible to knock off his feet.

    Then we would make three backs in 2020... One APB and two running backs if we get Bowman.

    Get it, Leonard!!
    Love love love seeing these Vanguard and North Marion boys choosing the good guys.
    Gives this displaced Ocala boy some hometown pride.
    Great to see Mullen locking down the backyard.

    I’m confused. I was under the impression this staff couldn’t recruit.

    I was saying during the NC game that we need a Justyn Ross that if you throw it anywhere in a 5 yard vicinity to him, he will catch it, irrespective of the coverage.

    We just got him.

    Great leaper but not blazing speed. Any chance he grows into a TE? He looks great on defense. Could be an OLB if he wasn't such an excellent receiver. He's catching radius is huge.

    We could have uga/bama worthy classes in 2020 and 2021.

    Smith ain't coming to UF. We've already got Lee committed and Bowman is our top target and likely going to commit before the summer. No need/room for 3 RB's in this class. He's also probably behind Manuel, Britt, Henderson, Douglas and Wideman on the WR board and that's not even counting guys like Rosemy, Jarrett etc. who are "targets" but not likely UF bound.

    I'd put it as likely he ends up staying in Texas. Either at UT or A&M.
