    Any reason why we don't start pushing for this kid? #6 Dual threat QB out of TX, currently projected to LSU but they have 2 good QB commits already.

    Tennessee, Missouri, LSU, Arkansas and Auburn to name a few of the several schools interested in him. That's decent list of offers.

    I haven't heard anything about this kid looking at UF, or having a UF offer, but he seems like a solid prospect. He's currently ranked much higher than Jalen Jones was.

    Robby Ashford - from Hoover, AL - seems like the only top rated QB we have are legitimately keeping warm (other than AR). He's an Auburn lean right now, and that makes sense since he's from Alabama.

    Robby Ashford, 2020 Dual-threat quarterback - Rivals

    Other than Ashford, the only QB that seems like a real possibility is FSU commit Jeff Sims:

    Jeff Sims, Sandalwood, Pro-Style Quarterback

    Sims make sense, since we're on several of his teammates (and signed one of his teammates in 2019). He's bigger than EJ Jones was in HS, but seems more raw (and much more of a project).

    One other possibility, but does not have an offer:

    CJ Dixon, from Grayson HS (GA) - he was considered a UGA lean, but will likely look elsewhere now that they got Beck:

    CJ Dixon, Grayson, Pro-Style Quarterback

    Bottom line: we better get Richardson back in the fold or the pickings are slim.

    I noticed Sims and Dixon months ago on recruiting boards as good QB prospects with some interest in UF. Watched a few clips. Both looked good.

    Okay after watching this kid's highlight tape in Hudl I can say that I really do like what this QB brings to the table as a real DT-QB. He's also deceptively quick as well as fast.

    I want this QB more than the other that have been posted here above. Plus he's does NOT seem to have UGA crystal balls for him. From Texas with one crystal ball for LSU which can quickly change when he realizes that Mullen and Gainesville is the RIGHT fit for his talents.

    I hope our coaches are looking at this kid seriously.

    I still prefer Tucker Gleason even though he just committed to Georgia Tech. But I don’t think he is even on our board.

    I never stopped liking Tucker Gleason. Couldn't understand why we stopped discussing him. What am I not seeing wrong with him in his clips?

    All I can figure is that he transferred to Plant from a team that was pretty bad so he got no press. He went to a couple camps (UNC comes to mind) but no big ones. I think he was at the Orlando Elite 11 recently too. His stock will definitely jump this Fall. The fact that he is listed as a "Pro Style" QB tells me no one has actually watched his tape. The kid ran for over 1,000 yards this year. Including a bunch against Lakeland.

    In case some folks haven't seen his tape...

    I prefer King from Texas to Gleason from Tampa Plant.

    King reminds me of Grier.

    One crystal ball for LSU and that's it. So he's basically anyone's future QB still, IMHO.
