    I don't think Wilson is a high priority....a guy on the board but not up there with some others

    Don't want the “Wilson” backlash (or flashbacks)

    Wilson is a 5* and much in the same mold as Donaldson. They may not want 2 of basically the same guy but we shall see.

    i’d prefer Wilson but wouldn’t be mad at Donaldson at all. Basically, long as they have size and athleticism, ion care who they end up with. All that other stuff can be taught

    Supposedly Donaldson is a BB recruit and CMW is after him as the future gator PG. The comment has been made that White won’t sign him if he isn’t willing to be full time w Bb. So, depending on where his heart is at, Donaldson AND Wilson could both end up being gators. But one in BB and the other on the gridiron. Guess we’ll see.

    I’ll say this ( probably for a second time ha).....

    Donaldson and Moore are pretty underrated.
    We pull those two and grab Wilson and Matthews and we will be very happy for the next 4-5 years w that DB haul.

    Donaldson is a guy I think our staff has high hopes for. Wondering if bball future causing ranking to be a little lower than should be.

    The rankings value guys who are multi sport athletes. especially if the player is top tier in at least one. I see him going up in the rankings.

    This makes me dislike him a bit. Like a high school kid knows more about coach quality than experienced head coaches.

    Well...i'm sure his recruitment involved our coaches telling him that our DB coaches were, in fact, good coaches.

    It seems like there are a ton of stud DB's and Safeties in this class. Maybe we're just focused on a bunch of them so it feels like there are a million of them?
    On the other end of the spectrum ... there seem to be very few DT's in this class.

    Just the ratio of normal human size. The big boys are always top priority for everyone. There just aren’t enough for everyone.
    Tgat said, there are always nfl kids after the first three hundred recruits. Some schools/coaches always seem to have good los’ without top recruits. Development/or seeing a kids potential. Has to be a combination of the two.

    I think Jamari Lyons will be one of two max slots for DT, I don't expect the DT board to expand significantly unless we are whiffing.

    Why only two DT? I would think if we could pull four we would and should. Two DT/two SDE then.

    There is no way we would take 4 high school DT this class, since we are only going to take about 20 total high school recruits.
