    That's probably very wise.

    Hope we offer him but someone on 247 said that the staff wants to see more. I'm thinking "what the hell more do you need to see". Lol

    I hope he's being recruited as a safety. I watched the opening film on him and it looks like he got beat most of the time but the ball was underthrown and he was able to catch up and make a play. Take him as a CB? He better have a lot better tape than what I just saw.

    I wonder, and let get your opinion on this, if the interest/recruitment of Francois is in response to the staff possibly not having a good feeling on Avantae Williams? Tae, for all he's said, has stood firm by his Oregon pledge no matter how much UF, UGA, and Miami has pushed for the flip.

    Isn’t Francois bigger than Williams?
    Francois had 12 ints against great competition.

    Why haven’t we offered?

    I have heard that he is a top tier db in south florida. If not the best a close 2nd or 3rd.

    Reading the tea leaves I think he gets an offer. I doubt it effects Williams.

    Yea just checking and theorizing. I know we'd still take Williams if the chance came but I was just wondering if it was because they thought Williams may be leaning elsewhere

    Bobby, I don't have any sources about Williams. I just looked at that tape and saw Francois getting beat and balls were underthrown and he was able to recover. If those passes were on the money there's no way he would've broken them up. That's why I think he's a safety instead of a CB.

    Yea he's like Henry Gray....we are NOT looking at him as a CB but rather as a safety/STAR

    That usually means the HC has only two more seasons. It’s hilarious that two Va Tech(?) defenders are free and heading straight for the QB. One could not photoshop this better.
