    I think we
    Should leave them both up. One is an example of how to write a post title. The other is the opposite.

    Reminds me of Bostic and Neal. Looks more like a safety than a LB, but can knock the bones out of you. I used to worry about them getting a personal foul every time they tackled the opponent. Today's new rules, they will probably get kicked out of the game more often than not.

    In reality we swap Burton for McMillon, are we better off with McMillon over Burton? in my opinion the down side of this swap is that there are more safeties left in the Gator recruiting board than they are CBs.

    Lol it's cool. But yea with how cfb is now, loading up on 240+ lb's aren't the wave anymore. Gotta have more nickel and dime coverage personnel more than ever. Like this pickup

    I would say we swapped Burton for Jordan Young, and I'm fine with that trade

    I really don’t think they are swaps.

    Yes sir, Versatility is everything now defensively. This is a kid that will be able to do a lot and a year in The Savage program will turn him into a beast.

    He's a good kid and well spoken... and criminally underrated too. He's far better than his composite rating.

    Absolutely and it has been really interesting to see where our safety recruits have sometimes ended up playing. Jevon Kearse was a high school safety when we recruited him. He ran kickoffs back for TD's in HS. Amazing development in his case.

    I think black could have a kearse like UF career. Seems like depending on how much muscle they want him to gain he could play all 3 levels on D

    While he’s being recruited as a strong safety, he seems like a good Star prospect as well. Agree that he is underrated. The kid is a collision waiting to happen and looks good in coverage.
