    avantae Williams who I assume was a top target of ours at safety committed to Oregon recently. He’s a top 50 kid from our backyard. Hopefully distance becomes a factor and he realizes he’d be playing for Oregon rather than a resurgent Gator program that is headed back to the top. We need kids like this though.

    Our Safety Coach needs to be a better recruiter. No top safeties this year and already behind the 8 ball next year

    I heard some talk about Guss Scott joining Mullen's crew... I wonder if there's any 'there' there.

    Well they already have an elite safety committed for next year so not really behind any 8 ball

    Just wait till Orgeon underperforms in the soft PAC 12 and their players get zero exposure in the media. Then will see how great Critobal is at recruiting Florida. No amount of Nike facilities will overcome that.

    It’s 3,029 miles from DeLand to Eugene OR. It may stick, it may not but that’s a loooong way

    Right now, Oregon's facilities are light years ahead of just about everyone's. Nike money.
    Hard to chase that one down.
    But you guys are right... Oregon is a lonnnng way from home.
    Sometimes... so far that, as Steve Winwood says, one, "...cannot find their way back home."
    (Just a little "Winwood/Clapton/Trucks" for you Guys and Gals dis mornin'.)

    This early they are recruiting by area, not by position coach.

    This is unfortunate since we got Marks from Deland this year. I hoped this was to get Williams to follow. Maybe there's still time. We shall see.
