    So I am pleased with where recruiting is now and believe that the staff will finish up strong for the ‘20 class..but that’s not my main focus here. The problem I still have is that we let top talent leave the state too much for anyone’s liking and it needs to be addressed. I like the staff but if anything could be moved around to hire coaches who actually enjoy recruiting and see it as essential to the the success of our program- I’m all for that. We already see Mullen and the staff forgetting Cali and moving their focus towards places such as, Maryland, Louisiana, Georgia, Texas & probably even North & South Carolina- which is great. But as most of us know Florida is an obvious hotbed for recruiting year in and year out. So, with the dead period being officially over it looks like the staff is already working towards focusing on the state after sending out personal letter to top in-state talent. Here is a list of kids we must go after with everything we have..
    2021:
    Terrence Lewis LB 5 stars (former commit)
    Bryce Langston DE 4 stars
    (Former commit)
    Jason Marshall DB 4 stars
    Agiye Hall WR 5 stars
    Mario Williams WR 4 stars
    (Arguably best wideout in Florida along with Hall)
    James Williams S 5 stars
    Leonard Taylor DT 4 stars
    Corey Collier DB 4 stars
    Xavian Sorey ATH 4 stars
    Trevonte Rucker WR 4 stars
    (Former commit)
    Marcus Tate OL 4 stars
    Saivion Collins DT 4 stars
    (UM commit)
    Dink Jackson ATH 4 stars
    (Former commit)
    Gage Wilcox TE 4 stars
    Markevious Brown DB 4 stars
    - have to prioritize the state and get the top guys every year.

    You are correct. Good start thus far. 2021 will be a huge year and yes UF needs to get their share. In addition to the commits I feel good about Wilcox, Rucker, Langston and Lewis. A bit less so on Lewis. It's early but things are looking very positive for a great 21 class.

    This is why I do not look at recruiting 2 years out. I mean UF had Bryce Langston, Dink Jackson, Trevonte Rucker, Terrence Lewis and Wilcoxson (eventually recommitted)all committed and then they all decommitted.

    I honestly expect all of them to be back in the class except Lewis. Langston seems just to be a matter of time. Rucker I feel may drag it out and Lewis....I just feel that he's Miami bound. Jackson shouldn't be a problem to get back either

    Yeah I’ve heard most of them may come back into the fold. Hope so because all of them are ballers.

    These kids talk to each other behind the scenes even more than we know. They attempt to at least network their own teams. Lol

    I thought about something similar too that makes you realize how much OUT of the loop we are as fans. Soooo many kids unoffically visit UF and then, when you see their twitter page, has them in UF gear, you go "when the hell did they have HIM on campus". SOOO many targets and players of interest visit a campus that you'll NEVER get a full list of visitors.
