    Don’t know how he’ll translate as a player, but I watched a couple interviews with him, and he exudes confidence and some swag. Reminds me a bit of Matt Corrall.

    This kid looks is probably our top target for '24. UF just offered him a couple of weeks ago. 4600 yards, 43 TD passes, 16 on the ground his first two seasons. Three sport athlete (basketball and lacrosse) and a member of the National Honor Society.

    Watching his clips he seems a bit underrated at #8 but I haven't seen any other QB clips for that class. On3 gives UF a 33% chance of signing him over Michigan State at 28%.

    Well tell me who would have been your first choice? Have you really seen this kid spin the ball? Are you underrating him because of the BS ? He plays in a high level district and continues to preform! Disappointing post from you!

    I’ve already said I would’ve liked us to pursue Singleton and/or Collins. Nowhere did I say I never wanted Stokes.

    I like this Stokes kid. He's a Gator, love that. Willing to recruit. Learn and develop. He has the tools. Needs some refinement, but may well have a better upside than some others-only time will tell.

    Trask was a humble kid that stayed in the wings and learned; and learned well. We can only hope that Stokes will develop like that. We have a great class so far and I'm excited to see who else we snag. Hope for some more primo Gator commits' before the end of the month.

    I wouldn't mind another portal kid where we have a need.

    Napier is building the foundation...

    Go Gators.:)

    You asked me who would've been my first choice, I gave you two that I would've liked to see us pursue. How exactly does that equate me "not wanting" Stokes? I can both be happy that Stokes is at UF and believe there are players out there with more upside.

    Spoiler: The coaching staff thinks the same thing.

    Which is kind of huge, you think. Rashada bounces around poncing with his hair, but I want a guy that can run the offense and hit receivers.

    Miami is going to eat major coin on Rashada, in my opinion.

    That kind of money needs a top five heisman qb. That remains to be seen.

    Then why did they pursue Rashada, Manning, Holstein, Longeran and Moore before offering Stokes?

    You are not appropriate for this thread announcing a new and very welcome Gator. Take it somewhere else.

    Stokes wants to be a Gator !! Period .
    You’re man Rashada didn’t! Another thing you help to reestablish the pipeline in Jax !! Thinking out of the box here

    From my untrained, football fan eyes I think Stokes highlights are better than Rashada. Rashada just has bombs where receivers run under. Stokes throws off balance, over the middle and long balls and i think against better competition. I'll take the Florida boy all day long
