    He should be a Gator, though anytime a commit is leaning our way for 6 months but fails to pull the trigger I'm a little nervous.

    This kid should be a 4-star, and if he was in better shape would be a borderline top 100 type. He's a really good take if he commits himself to Savage's program.

    IMO Watson is the most important recruit left on the board. I think he's undervalued and we don't have a similar recruit to replace him with if he goes elsewhere.

    We're screwed if we miss on him AND Taylor. Collins is not in their league and even he isn't guaranteed to flip.

    It's such a head scratcher when you see a guy like Watson, rated #355 overall and 21st DT , rated so much lower than a guy like Savion Collins who who you just said is not in Watsons league, but Collins was at one point (earliest rankings as he was just being ranked as a underclassmen) considered a borderline 5 star player. To me I'd take Watson all day over him. Guy is YUGE!!! and not to mention is light on his feet, quick hands, good swim moves, and eats up blockers. Also comes from a fairly big school in Armwood. These discrepancies in rankings just makes me not wanna star gaze more and more and more.

    Watson will be rated above Collins before all is said and done. The rating agencies don't like to drop a guy too quickly, both because it looks bad on the agency, and because these are sensitive high school kids. From what I've seen Collins is super raw, and should be expected to sit for 2-3 years. Watson isn't nearly as raw, but his body means that he's still likely a redshirt. Taylor could figure into the back end of the rotation as a freshman and quickly work his way up.

    He is massive. Moves his feet very well for his size. Even scarier is the way he is throwing around folks. Nimbler Shariff Floyd

    I need him in this class. And he needs to keep a running back number also
