    Exactly. I would keep pushing for Kearney too, wouldn't give up on that even with him committing to FSU and having some not so positive things to say about UF. Hell keep at it with Grayson Howard too; KEEP RECRUITING him.

    Denson
    Stokes
    Webb

    and possibly Hall would be a GREAT way in reclaiming Jax.

    Highlights show a couple of 50-60 yard on-target passes, can move around the pocket, ability to fit passes in, leads his receivers just right, more than willing runner. Seems to be a pretty legit 4* to me.

    I see a Napier QB as a hard nosed, scrapper who makes good decisions and can move the chains.

    After Richardson wins the Heisman he'll get whoever he wants.

    Surprise given his recent comments. Great to be taking back Jacksonville as Gator Country. Webb was a great pickup as well

    I like this kid. Watching this video He has some swagger to him. A confidence that usually resonates well with teammates.

    Stokes is a better leader. Not a better QB.

    The head/mind is what separates qbs. Certainly confidence helps along with learning and decision-making in split seconds, as well as handling adversity.

    There's a minimum level of physical ability of course, and the more you have, like AR15, the easier it makes some throws and the higher your ceiling (NFL). We just need a college player.

    Incredibly difficult to predict qbs for this reason, but we just saw our guy facing pressure to flip his commitment do better than a Rashada rattled by the NIL mess he made, and that pressure will keep going up in duh u.

    I just watch HUDL clips. Rashada's clips are more impressive. That said, I'm glad he's not going to be a Gator and glad that Stokes will be in the QB room for four or five years.

    Gotta bag an elite QB next cycle.

    I believe Stokes is probably a more developmental project, along the same lines as current Gator Max Brown. To me the bigger story here is the staff's ability to get a flip at the QB position after what seemed like a period of growing bad karma with recruiting........yesterdays 2 pickups should stop that crowd and its attempted narrative.

    It's all a guess who is better. 2-3 years we will know. Hopefully Stokes will be coached better.
