    WR Leonard Manuel, #UF's highest-ranked commit, says recruiting is nothing but an afterthought.

    "All I'm looking at is Florida right now and I'm not looking at any other schools"

    Yes but it's okay to talk about good>great players and look at recruiting in a snapshot and discuss what we see and the possible impact to our roster and how it helps a rival. We have what appears to be a firm commitment from a WR, our most loaded position. And so?

    True but Manuel looks about as ready to play D-1 ball as any WR we've brought in recent years. He could start from day one. Incredible strength and polish. Maybe he'll even get faster when Savage gets hold of him.

    Hearing rumblings that his grades are awful and good chance he will end up going juco.

    SMH, why are these kids even allowed to play HS ball with bad grades?
    They don't need straight A's or even straight B's but playing HS FB is a privilege. If they can't maintain C's(at least a 2.5 gpa) they should not be allowed to play and that needs to come down from the district.
    These kids need a HS diploma knowing something more than a FB scholarship.

    Where are you getting all these information? If he was my kid, how on earth other people besides his parents, teachers, academic advisor, and principal know about his failures in school.

    I imagine b/c some of those people like to leak stuff, makes them feel important. The Manuel rumor is that he's hasn't actually shown up at Vanguard since before Spring Break and shouldn't be factored into our class at all. I've seen this said 2-3 time on other UF boards from their mods. :-(
