    Yea I agree but watching the film on Holmes, EJ, and Drennen, I wouldn't mind them because they can be VITAL in the passing game. EJ is basically like having an extra WR

    I think you have to take one. We aren't really deep at RB after this season. A four star Athlete/RB is a good thing.

    Agreed, Perine and any other loss (injury, transfer, etc) and we are light at running back.

    We have probably three backs still here next year. We need at least one but they don’t take the extra year that big boys Do

    Should have 4 of our top 5 backs next year, right? Davis, Pierce, Clement, Wright?

    SOS used to say that you needed seven RBs to compete in the SEC. That's a bit heavy for the kind of offenses run now, but five scholarship RBs seems reasonable.

    I've come around to liking Lee the most out of the prospects most likely to commit to UF but I have a funny feeling about Smith's future. He doesn't have prototype size and speed but his finesse is off the charts. Stanford will be very fortunate to have him for four years. He'd be crazy to come to UF as a slot receiver. Stanford wants him as a RB and that's where he belongs.

    Davis and Clement question marks though correct? I mean, we don't yet know if they can handle a full season of play. Hopefully. Likely.

    Lee says” found a place to call home”, wonder what that means

    With Knighton just committing be shocked if it is FSU.

    I’d say us or Penn State.

    Right especially with talk of Edwards being a "silent" to FSU along with the WR Byron Robinson.

    LSU could be a player too as they dont have a RB pledge either

    With my history betting on things if I actually wagered any money on it, then I would wholeheartedly concur. Unfortunately for us I have no money on the line though. :(

    No idea but I could see a player, any player, going to LSU and liking it. big campus, arguably great campus, extensive and already developed facilities, hell of a class stacked on a heck of a class to hang your hat on. Wish it more appeared he was already super high on Florida but feels more like he was looking for another place to fall in love with as if he feels he already knew UF well enough. That said, probably UF. Hard to see him picking Penn St but maybe seems like a great place in the summer months.

    Do you really like Lee?

    I like Lee but your reservations make sense. “ finding home” doesn’t sound UF to me although his Twitter seems fairly pro gators.
