    I guess this is the best place to post/link how well Mike Peterson is doing as a coach and as a recruiter for the Gators. Just look at the list of players he has brought in as a recruiter.

    Had the chance to meet Mike up here in Atlanta on the golf course. Very energetic and engaging man. I can understand why he’s such a good recruiter.

    Lucky you, from what these young men are saying about him he seems to be really cool... "chill" to quote the young-ins. I like that he's a former Gator football player too. And he's just getting started in coaching and recruiting.

    I mean he’s what a Junior in high school right now? So DE but could grow into a DT I would assume.

    Wiggins was a special guest on Hightop Sports today. He was really engaging and articulate and seems like a good kid. He could be a leader on this team.

    The other schools really didn’t want him.
    He’s a step slow
    Can’t disengage
    Weight issues
    Borderline student
    Short a Math class
    Noles will get him on a late flip
    Only a 2 down player
    Injury issues

    Man, that's a lot of good scoop. Is this the same guy that was coming across well in the interview mentioned above? Borderline student and short credits? Only a 2-down player, but, some are saying here he could be a team leader? Almost sounds like we're talking about two different people.

    As NIL and TP gets worse and worse, we need to pack our staff with former players. You think if our RB coach was somebody like Gillespie he would’ve let ETN go to friggin UGA???
