    I like him as a CB3 Or S in this class. However, some fans won’t. Film is good, I did see Mario Williams absolutely work him last year but that’s just one game against an elite WR. Think the staff is holding off on it right now because there is multiple guys higher on the board. May be discussing whether they want him as a CB or S- because the boards at those positions are a lot different.

    It is striking how different the ranking services are on our recruits, or at least how 247 is from the others. The troubling thing with their rankings is that we have only 2 players whose 247 ranking exceeds the composite, and it is a nominal difference as to those 2 but diverged significantly with many of the other 18 recruits. If the differences were random between the services, that number should be 10 and differences wouldn't be great for many recruits. One would get an opinion that the ones in charge of rankings weight opinions of non-Gator coaches more than Gator coaches in evaluating recruits. Just weird.

    Rankings aside, any reason we've been loading up on DBs the last two cycles?

    Rivals has Young rated pretty high compared to the other recruiting services. His ranking is as follows:
    Rivals: #12 CB/#156 overall/ 4*
    ESPN: #72 CB/3*
    247: #63 CB/#801 overall/3*
    Needless to say it looks like Rivals is very high on him.

    He should be a 4* star in my opinion. He's the # 22 overall rated player in the state of Florida.

    Offers from Bama, FSU, Georgia, Clemson, OSU, LSU etc weighed against some schmuck reporter from 247 calling him a 3 star?

    I don't know that evaluations at 247 are simply left to "some schmuck" as you put it....( unless of course you're specifically aware of evaluations being done that way, then by all means please share with everyone your intimate knowledge of 247's flawed process?) My guess is that evaluations can be wrong in as far as under valuing a talent as much as it is on over rating talent. The percentages however because these folks continue to stay in business are that they more often than not are pretty much spot on!

    I wouldn't describe 247 Sports work, any of the recruiting sites work, as "spot on." The recruiting sites will rank and re-rank these kids several times before we get to the end of the recruiting season. At any stage, trust the UF coaches evaluations above all else.
