    Agree. But of course a lot can change in 4-6 months.

    Agreed. I’d say in next few weeks is getting a back would be huge since there is a possibility ( deducing based on past and possible depth concerns in secondary) that Clement goes back to defense. We gotta get Scott, Drennen or another. Hate to be left out cold in December, which is not far away.

    **hope this doesn’t get deleted since what I’ve deduced with Clement has actually happened in the past. In the past I’d never even think let alone wrote this....unbelievable!! Saying this because things got deleted earlier when asking about an injury and if Stewart was practicing. SMH

    I like Lee a lot and I feel he could find success in our offense but I don't LOVE him to the point where i'm willing to wait around and play games with him in hopes he chooses us. There are others in this class who I think would allow us not feel bad if he missed on him but landed others on our board.

    Mecose Todd film is alright. He's not a break away threat AT ALL and his offense runs a Wing T type of them and he's like the wing back so it's hard to get a read out of how he's effective taking handoffs from a traditional RB stand point.

    Quiet as kept, I like MS3 WAAAAAAAAAAY more than I like Toafili

    That's exactly what I'm looking for in a RB commit, somebody who won't allow us to feel bad about a prospect we didn't get. Can't help wondering who would make me feel okay about not getting Bowman. I'd feel good about getting EJ but I don't think he's being recruited as a feature RB. IMHO, he would certainly fit that role if he is the only RB we get.

    Isn't Seider at PSU? That may be the pull for Lee.

    Right on about EJ. He would be a great pick up but like how much are we looking at him as a RB who'll help us in the passing game more so than a Percy type that be like almost 50/50 where we line him up at.

    Bowman, Smith, Lee or bust. Other guys will disappoint or transfer out.

    Toafili announcing Wednesday at 10:30pm. FSU of c purse has the cb’s. I’m guessing this means there’s been some movement in the pile? Or was this planned?

    I really like Toafili. His skillset is great for what Mullen and Co do. It’s wild to me that he’s trending more towards the school out west, not nearly as great a fit for his skillset.

    So they are gonna get Knighton and Toafili. Pretty impressive to get 2 of top 4 in state.

    Unless we get Lee we will be shutout instate.

    TBH, I'm concerned at RB. I suspect UF will go all in on EJ and Lee but if Lee goes PSU, Smith goes Stanford, where does UF go from there?

    Geez guys, Im messing with you.

    I mean, if this is the set-up to a joke, there better be a hell of a punchline.
